i have several things that i want to post about but i’m pretty tired at the moment. therefore, i’ll put a few blurbs up and see if they turn into anything longer.
- we participated in trivia weekend this past week. stevens point hosts the world’s largest trivia competition. 54 straight hours of trivia, 417 teams, and 11,000 people. it’s kind of a big deal. it was also a blast. it was our first year and we ended up placing 174th which i have been told is not bad for newbies. we had around 15 people over at the house and 6 of us that were committed to the whole time. that’s a small trivia group considering the average group size is 26 and the top place groups average around 50. we already have plans for improving our experience next year. if any of you southerns want to come up next year for trivia you would be welcomed.
- yesterday was our first “film & theology” meeting. we’re going to try this again in the future. basically we watched “stranger than fiction” and then discussed it’s connections with faith. it was a first time thing for us so there is a lot that we can improve upon. it was cool twittering the movie and screens beside the movie screen. thanks to some of the wonderful people of tapestry i have a growing list of ways to improve it. i sent out an email to those who went asking what they thought and how we could make it better. all of the responses thus far have been very positive while also providing some great suggestions for improving it next time. makes me all the more excited to be a part of tapestry.
- i’ve swapped my eee pc 901 to eeebuntu. it was running xandros but i am enjoying eeebuntu so much more. it seems to be faster and is definitely better looking right out of the box. i also like the fact that eeebuntu is easier to customize than xandros.
