So, I worked with my friend thursday with his integration by parts. The problem he was having wasn't the concept of the IBP, but rather how to take stuff like sine^2 and converting it to something easier to integrate. I didn't help him much, but started breaking down the problems, giving him options, and he ended up working all his problems out on his own.So, I worked with my friend thursday with his integration by parts.

Thats when the misery happened. That next morning, at like 4am, I got a severe stomach flu. I've had the flu before, I've had it bad, I can even remember when I had it the worst. This was about 100 times worse than that time. I was almost to the brink of tears, I was so miserable. Friday was hell. I'd go on, but A.) It'd be a gross conversations and B.) I'm trying to forget it.
But, on the bright side, Valentine's Day was still spent the way we had planned, rented a couple DVD's, got takeout from our favorite restaurant, and ate & watched them while Joey slept (my wife isn't the "flowers" type, and no "chocolates" for the diabetic).
It took until today to fully recover, but I got some time on the new computer (I still need to rehookup the old one so I can copy over all the email stuff and crap... I haven't checked my home email in almost a week). So, of course, I played myself some more DeusEx:IW. One of the most entertaining parts of the game has been the 'dead body physics' (followed closely by people standing too close to fires, catching themselves on fire, then running around flailing about, and catching OTHER people on fire). Firing a sniper shot out of a high powered rifle, hitting the enemy in the face, and watch his body, basically, summersault is just funny to see. And the lines can just be GREAT (I must be dead, then, cause I'm up to my eyeballs in biomodifications!). Then again, I could just be loopy cause of the illness...
So I've been out of the
Anything exciting happen to yens all?
 Hey all you "I don't celebrate Valentine's Day, and my wife agrees" types: She may not like the 'hallmark' thing, or whatever, but all her friends and stuff will have Valentine surprises and such, and you'll be the one looking like an ass because she secretly wants a little something (women wanting something, but not telling you or telling you the opposite is just completely unfounded, right?). For quick recovery, do something on a Tuesday (bring home flowers?) just out of the blue for no reason. Thank me later
 the amigos trick is simply http://slashdot.org/my/amigos. It lines up all your friends journals in order. Its the best way to check out new stuff, and good if you are one of the first people to reply to a journal (so you can go back and see what other people have said. IE - going back to see all the wiseass cracks at em when he posts a poll)
