iPhone Does What Nintendon’t

Things are not going well for Nintendo these days. There are two articles worth reading on the topic:

One and Two

The 3DS is facing some stiff competition from iOS and Android games, and the cracks are beginning to show in the once impenetrable barriers that Nintendo had surrounding their precious handheld market. While I do not understand how iOS games and Android games can truly compete with triple-A titles (especially first-party ones), that is only a small part of what I want to talk about.

Work is Slow (Math Guy Challenge Problems)

My summer job has been surprisingly slow. They have given me a lot of work during my time here, but I finish it all really quickly. I even double check everything that I do for accuracy, and I still have loads of free time. I’ve solicited my colleagues for extra work, but they either appear to have nothing for me or are unwilling to share the duties that they believe must be theirs alone.

So, in my spare time, I’ve taken to playing a bit of Minecraft (on occasion) and thinking up challenging math problems that I’ll be able to use when I start teaching in the Fall. If my downtime persists as it has already, I may have a challenge problem for each grade that I teach during each week of class.

If you feel so inclined (and I understand that most people who view this – except Katie – are not interested in mathematics), check it out by clicking “Math Guy Problems” in the menu bar.

I have so much fun making up problems! Cheers folks. :)

From what I can tell, 4 of the 5 core Red Card Group members are now using Google+ (to the best of their ability) and I am curious to hear everyone else’s thoughts about it too.

The Devil is Dancing

Here is your requisite reading.

Media outlets have been buzzing about this Casey Anthony trial and the surprising “Not Guilty” verdict. To summarize, Casey Anthony had a two year old daughter - Caylee Anthony - who had gone missing for about a month before her mother reported her as missing to the police. During the period of time where her daughter was missing in action, Casey Anthony demonstrated no concern, and was frequently out partying and “living it up”.

Slowly filling my header image pool with little snippets of things that I like.

I would worry about getting sued by someone…except that I don’t really make any kind of money off of this site, nor do I get any traffic…so I don’t know that I’m doing anything wrong. If anything, it is all an elaborate tribute (or about as illegal as me putting up posters in my bedroom or office of all these same characters).
