Escape for the Ur-Qan

I am very glad that I already have a computer game I enjoy. It appears that Star Control 2 is now available as a free download. Fortunately, in my undergraduate years I already spent some time with this marvelous game. Had I only known about its greatness from watching friends play, I would be facing some severe time-management temptation now.

Metal Puzzles

My wife got me two metal puzzles (1, 2) as Chanukah presents. It took some work, but I was able to solve them both. I'll take them to my office at LCC. Hooray for not cheating and looking up the solutions!
