Superbowl Commercials

Since I was little, my sister and I would sit in front of the tv and count what type of commercials they were playing. Of course now that I'm older, I did the same thing, but this time with my laptop and an excel spreadsheet. I recorded these from after the kickoff to right before the last play. I may have missed a few due to inattention. However, these are the results that I came up with:

VeriCon

Right, the last weekend in Jan we went to Boston and to the Museum of Science and then to Harvard's VeriCon. It was loads of fun. George R R Martin is really cool. Also went to a really fun webcomic's pannel (I wrote about it on som_pos here).

There was a Star Wars exhibit at the MoS. It was awesome. Pictures here.

At VeriCon I won the Apples to Apples game b/c I know how to play the right cards to geeks, for example: dark = my mind, sexy = whips.

I have writen a post about VeriCon. I feel better now.
