Then I talked to my prof about him taking me on as his student. In the course of one day, he's lent me a book, shown me another one online, recommended chapters out of a third, and suggested that I attend a two-week summer school in Cornell. I've gone from slightly unfocused to overwhelmed in record time. This is nuts. But in a good way.
In other news, my prof suggested that I attend a two-week summer school in Cornell. I wonder if there's a feasible mode of transportation to get from Cornell to New York City for a weekend. I haven't sorted out details about the rest of my summer, but I'm hoping to take a few weeks off after the summer school and go home (but not before making a pit stop in Toronto. Mak has kindly extended his welcome to me, while Jim... has not).
So that's where I'm at on the academic front. On the blog front, Steve yesterday informed me that both his and my PageRank are now a very impressive 3/10. (In comparison, your PageRank is probably 0/10.) Suck it, Nicholas Wang.
On the Dickolas Wang front, someone left a comment on LUGs.com and none of us recognized the name "mc". In trying to track this person down, I had this conversation with Steve and his friend the other day:
|stevekwan.com||Funk Mastah MC, Richform||Richard, meet MC|
|stevekwan.com||Funk Mastah MC, Richform||MC, were you posting on Richard’s blog?|
|Richform||Funk Mastah MC, stevekwan.com||hello MC|

|stevekwan.com||Funk Mastah MC, Richform||Someone named MC was posting on his blog|
|stevekwan.com||Funk Mastah MC, Richform||And he wants to know because he’s desperate to make friends|
|stevekwan.com||Funk Mastah MC, Richform||Sad, really|
|Funk Mastah MC||stevekwan.com, Richform||>_< i just said hello to richard....how am i supposed to know where to find his blog|
A little later...
|Richform||Funk Mastah MC, stevekwan.com||so tell me about yourself, Mirna|
|Funk Mastah MC||stevekwan.com, Richform||OH is this dickalos wang!?|
|stevekwan.com||Funk Mastah MC, Richform||Mirna has never seen Star Wars!|
|stevekwan.com||Funk Mastah MC, Richform||Yes, this is THE Dickolas Wang|
|Richform||Funk Mastah MC, stevekwan.com||The Internet's Foremost|
|Funk Mastah MC||stevekwan.com, Richform||awesome! pleased to meet you (kinda)|
|Richform||Funk Mastah MC, stevekwan.com||e-meet|
|Richform||Funk Mastah MC, stevekwan.com||and you|
|stevekwan.com||Funk Mastah MC, Richform||Are you really pleased to meet a guy who calls himself Dickolas Wang?|
|Funk Mastah MC||stevekwan.com, Richform||i'm a big fan|
|Richform||Funk Mastah MC, stevekwan.com||Oh really?|
|Richform||Funk Mastah MC, stevekwan.com||So are you "mc"?|
|Funk Mastah MC||stevekwan.com, Richform||YES|
|stevekwan.com||Funk Mastah MC, Richform||I told you!|
But best of all:
|Richform||Funk Mastah MC, stevekwan.com||See, I was considering saying earlier that "You may know me as Dickolas Wang" when you said "I've just met you"|
|Richform||Funk Mastah MC, stevekwan.com||but I decided against it, on account of it being a really cocky thing to say|
|Funk Mastah MC||stevekwan.com, Richform||actually, that would have been the best intro ever|
To celebrate my recent online success, I've decided to dedicate an e-mail address just for website feedback. Don't know me and want to bitch but don't want to leave a comment? Don't know me and want to praise me but don't want to leave a comment? Want to sell me things? Direct thy browsers to my profile page, where you will find an e-mail address that I will probably forget to check more than once a month.
