A ring is a set in which you can add things and multiply things together without getting something outside of the set. Additionally there is a subtraction too, such that x + -x = 0.
The integers modulo 2 are what you get when after each operation (multiplication or addition) you divide it by two and take the remainder of that as new number. For example 2+3 becomes 1 (5 = 4+1), and 2+2 becomes 0.

I was able to explain that in just a couple sentences, and vector calculus requires heaps and heaps of theorems before you even get to do anything at all. I take it most people can divide, add, subtract and multiply on the other hand.

Great stuff really, though it's extremely long and kind of hard to recommend to people merely because it's already almost 80 episodes in and not quite sure how long it'll continue. The manga isn't complete either.
Just like how people won't get me started on One Piece. Too much to catch up.

As a space-nut friend of mine pointed out, it's very true to the constellation program. Though that was one of the things bothering him actually, since he sometimes rants about how the constellation program is not a proper priority in spaceflight, and that the focus should be put on other things instead. The rockets used in spaceflight and the majority of the modules are pretty realistic as well, though the arc with Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Hibito and the other astronaut getting stuck in a crater and Hibito almost running out of air yada yada,
was pretty unrealistic if you ask me (and my friend).

Other than that, truly hats off for actually creating something fairly realistic.

I'm busy studying for my maths midterm tomorrow and I'm gonna start writing my program tonight too. SO MUCH work T.T

Everyone suddenly studying math...
If any of y'all need help, feel free to PM or skype me questions. If I'm online I'll probably respond.

Hmmm, it has Gin no Saji S2, so in that respect it's at least similar. I think it'll be on the same low level as summer.

Anyway, nothing exciting yet..

It's a bit disconcerting how the characters joke and go super-deformed around the most inappropriate things in the story.

It's been a whole day and I still can't get over how the MC shrugged off the end of the story like that.  But I can't talk about it here for fear of spoiling...

I had almost three months of summer vacation.

And now I'm in the third semester and have to redo two entire classes/lectures/subjects/whatever from the frist semester on top of all the new stuff. I feel like standing in front of the K2 (Himalaya would be a bit too much).

Space Dandy is by the dude who made Cowboy Bebop.

No way that this is going to be bad (maybe not really my cup of tea though :P).
Hmm, that sounds rough. At least you're not starting over from scratch though!

Ah, that would make sense then. That was the other show I thought it looked like...

Ah okay. When you say it like that, it sounds really easy! I've actually already been using the mod operator in my java class!

I might hit you up on that offer if I come across anything challenging. At the moment though I think I have most of it down. Hopefully...
Yes!!!

Congratulations Audio Club,

Your student organization has been registered for the 2013-2014 school year. Attached you will find your RSO Certificate (pdf) verifying your registered status.

Now you can officially call yourself an audio snob!

Do you have a lot of members? I imagine it won't be easy to find that many members and to organize proper club activities.

Heh, yeah :D

Michelle and I just set the club up, so there aren't any members other than just us five officers. I don't know how we will organize proper activities either, but we were thinking of maybe learning how to use soundboards and running the audio for other clubs/concerts/ect.

Dang, new apple stuff looks really tempting. Any guesses on how much I could get out of a 64GB 3rd gen iPad that's jailbroken, comes with 2 cases and is in immaculate condition?

The new iPad air (terrible name but whatever) looks awesome. This thing is just way too darn heavy and big to hold with one hand. The new air looks like it should work much nicer. Also, the new MBPs with retina displays are even cheaper! O.o

Tempted to get the 15" quad core one over the dual core in the 13" though.

Or you could just sit around, drink tea and eat cake after school.
I heard that works too.
So far, I only spotted one Infection Biology master student person with some cheaper Westones.

Tablet PCs?
No, thanks.
Apple tablet PCs?
No, thanks.

I'll hold out on updating the chart until Moetron releases theirs.

Yay. We should hold an Alpha Dog meet and put up a collaborative review video. :p

Basically nothing cool. Free upgrade....meh I'll wait until the next update to iron out the bugs that tend to happen (think iOS 7!).

128 GB now. Finally.

I have never really seen Apple at being amazing at Desktop OS's but taking into consideration facts and many aspects of what they have been doing and have now done in the last year. I dare say that Apple has some sensible software engineers.

Halfway through the Endless Eight.
.......wow

It is not boring at all!
No idea how they are doing it, but each episode is eerier and more menancing than the last one.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
This giant cloud is freaking me out!
Never thought I would be creeped out by a stupid cloud.....

Oh and I don't even want to think about what an indescribable torture all this must be for Nagato.

Y..you're joking, right Tom?

With Mavericks they are furthering it with memory compression and better usage of CPU idle times and left over resources. Safari, AND a bunch of other Mac functions are receiving updated improvements that help save even more power.

As of right now, a Mac running Windows gets around 50% of the battery life as it will get versus running Lion (7hrs compared to about 12 hrs). Obviously this was actually tested by reviewers that are for the most part unbiased and not some fangirls that set Windows to maximum energy use. With Mavericks, they think the amount of battery life and performance will increase even more.

Best part of all, is that its a free OS for all computers back to 2007.

The download servers are extremely slow right now. And keep in mind that your computer upon upgrading to Mavericks will be slow. This is because Mavericks will be reindexing everything on the computer.

Microsoft is under more hot water. It's not exactly their fault. They can easilly do power enhancements and stuff like what Apple is doing, but their business model as just a software OEM prevents them for doing that stuff(support for multiple computers) as well as their focus on tablet PC's.

As much as I like Windows and Microsoft(the main software company I use), one thing they said today in their announcement of the new OS hits hard and true

Quote:Apple
"Now, our competition is different: they're confused. They chased after netbooks. Now they're trying to make PCs into tablets and tablets into PCs. Who knows what they'll do next?"

Microsoft and every other software and hardware OEM is trying to make tablets into PC's and PC's into tablets. Laptops and desktops aren't dead. Not by a long shot. The annoying upgrades that are unsupported after 3 months and trying to redefine them as something else is the problem.

I don't know many other companies right now whose PC's are actually being advertised as laptops and desktops right now. When you go to computer stores or see ads and banners of X companies new 'PC' it is almost always a tablet nowadays.

I want to buy a new PC laptop in the future possibly. They are making it really hard for me to do that.

I'd never switch to a Mac for desktop use, but for laptops, Apple's stuff just blows away the competition.

They used to command a huge price premium over PC laptops, but it's not so bad nowadays. Sure, they're still crappy in terms of value when looking purely at specs, but specs don't matter when you're travelling.

Unfortunately, my smashed iPad 2 still works flawlessly to this day, so I can't upgrade to the iPad Air yet...
