5:20 pm - Duck
Here's a lil cooking post on peking duck. There's many variations, and I can't remember exact measurements, but that should give you a general idea if you wanna make one. The duck I used was a young duck from Lac Brome, about 2.4 kg.

5:49 pm - Merry Xmas!
Merry xmas to everyone! I hope you all had fun. I just got back home from going celebrating on the north shore (with a death defying return trip). Will post more later, but I'll just drop off a photo now since Penny was gonna link it anyway!

So the family thought it would be a good idea to get Alex drunk enough to be able to be santa. I'm not sure if it worked out as well as they thought.

I'll let you be the judgeCollapse )

On an unrelated note, I got a nice sharp mezzaluna this year, yay!

11:49 am - jehovah's witnesses
I got my first witness visit today, and I'm pretty impressed by the new tricks they're trying to pull. This guy started off by trying to hand me a global warming pamphlet and asking me questions about global warming and the environment. Almost got me :O

6:30 pm - Away but alive
Spending the weekend back in my home woods. Drove 11 hours, through storm and mist, but I made it alive! I should be back to civilization during next week.

4:48 pm - Am home!
Moved in my new place, still unpacking and decorating (gonna go snatch some plants, a bookcase and a new desk) but a good chunk of the work is done! The move wasn't very pretty with lots of things going bad, but things are finally done and it's starting to feel like home. I'm back with the net and ready to rock.

10:00 pm - Update on work and stuff
Last week was pretty awesome, aside from the Habs losing two games (let's hope they don't screw up again, damnit). I started work on Wednesday, and so far I gotta say that I'm really liking the job. Everything about the job is very flexible, and I'm already working in pair with the big coder of the house while reviewing his code and proposing some enhancements. The project is absolutely thrilling, and frankly, it doesn't even feel like I'm working at all. The project is really fun, and I get a lot of freedom so it practically just feels like I'm helping out a cool piece of code, but I'm getting a decent pay to boot.

Aside from work, I'm starting to look around online and in papers for apartments, hopefully I'll have some time next weekend to go look around for a new place. I love my current place, but it's a wee bit tiny, and is not very proper for when I have guests. Hopefully I can find something big enough, that isn't too far from fun happenings in the city.

The weather has also been fantastic, so I finally get to chill on my balcony again. In general, life is great theses days, and I'm thinking this spring/summer should be pretty awesome!

2:19 am - Not quite sober.
But had a nice relaxing St'Paddy's.

I seem to have negotiated an interview for a pretty cool position in academics research.
And holy shit, I made some char siu bao while sober. I am so pigging out.

8:38 pm - Yay and less yay
Yay, I got a second interview scheduled with Electronic Arts, so that could be interesting. Boo, it seems like I got a really annoying cold :/. Oh well, hopefully it goes away soon so I can focus on projects and contracts, although I've cleared myself of contracts for the week so that I don't get too stressed for my interview.

Now, to figure out a learning project. Pondering tackling either J2ME (java for cellphones) or playing with the Facebook API (and make applications that people hate because they get those stupid invites).

3:36 am - Turning 25, and a lot of miscellaneous week info
I just turned 25 over the weekend, which makes me feel kinda oldish (it only goes downhill from that point on!) but it's alright. Didn't do much, had some good food and got myself a new cellphone (that looks very hackable, oooh), I'll give out the contact info for those who want to spam me with messages when I got it all set up (I changed the ring tone to a murloc aggro noise, yay). heavy partying will be done a bit later this month, when all my old friends are settled in montreal :)

Geeking out, Japanese and lack of pants.Collapse )

current mood: awake

7:23 am - Certainly has been a long time
I figured that since I was just having some free time, I'll post a little something here to say that I'm alive and well! It certainly has been quite some while since I've posted here; so many things have happened since then.

Over the past few months, I've been mostly studying and working a lot, meeting up with strange folks, ranging from delusional professors that believe we are still during the cold war, to shy russian ladies at the local cafe. I have participated in the computer security challenge of the CRIM, and have been on Canal Z (kinda Tech TV in french). I have finally managed to make my mark in certain circles of the big city, getting a bit of a reputation with my peers :). Sadly, no Google Summer of Code for me, but interesting contracts on the work aspect!

Entertainment wise, I've been playing some World of Warcraft (Shattered Hand, Alliance) and have been following a couple of nice shows like Firefly, which is just plain awesome!

On the negative side, there seems to be a bit of family tension back home, but I guess it's somewhat inevitable. And my grandfather sadly passed away last week, right after my visit. In any case, it is a relief that he won't suffer anymore, and I'll always cherish the memory of him as an ol' quiet trickster.

But in general, things are looking great on most aspects; I've been getting back into going to the gym regularly, I've been enjoying montreal's cultural venues and I'm more motivated than ever academically. So everything seems on the right track, and I'll try to update a bit more often here ^_^

6:04 am - Whaaa, multitagged, I have no choice ._.
List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre,
whether they have words, or even if they're any good, but they must be
songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your
LiveJournal along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to
see what they're listening to. (Not gonna do that last part, everyone's been tagged :O

1. Ichirin No Hana - High and Mighty Color (zomg, bleach intro @_@)

2. Tabibito - BennieK

3. Du Riechst So Gut - KMFDM (Rammstein Cover)

4. Technologic - Daft Punk (too much code and coffee @_@)

5. Spokey Dokey - Cowboy Bebop OST

6. Last Saskachewan Pirate - Arrogant Worms

7. Hokiboshi - Yunna (Bleach outro, keeps getting stuck in my head O.o)

10:27 am - Server
I'm gonna make a major cleanup of my server since I got a day before school starts. Don't worry, I'll be backing the stuff people have on my server, but expect some downtime and a bit of time to make everything work again.

Just poke me to recreate your ftp logins and the like. New server will feature more services and be much cleaner and will host the new #loth site under development :).

For those with no account on my server, this could also be the time to bug me if you want an ftp access or something else ^^
