abg: I like the idea. However, the biggest problem that I've seen is the one you list as #1: the words aren't ideal for speaking.

I, personally, speak with somewhat of a drawl. "and" and "ant" aren't going to be very distinguishable. I agree somewhat with jbucata, in that the number of letters seems less important than the speakability of the resulting words.

Also, what happens when IPv6 takes over? I really don't want to rattle off sixteen words...

mglazer: Jimmy Carter is highly respected. He may not have been an effective President (and I don't think anyone disputes that, even him) but he's been one of the most effective former Presidents we've ever had.

(Am I the only one who finds it strange that the same people lambast Carter for 'lusting in his heart' but support Clinton, who acted on it? (Don't get me wrong, Clinton was a great President, and what he did with Ms. Lewinsky was his business, but geez, get rid of the double standards already...))

When will I ever learn to stop feeding trolls?

school
OK... in the last week I've turned in the three assignments that have weighed the most on my mind. (UI Design website and paper, and Communications for Engineers group directions assignment)

Got the UI design paper back on Monday, got a 95. I'm happy.

One more final and I'll be done with this term.

However, registration for next term's classes has been a problem. Since I haven't been able to get my transcript from North Georgia Tech, USF won't let me register.

I just hope the courses are still open when all is said and done.

organization
Just got a CD binder. It holds 208 CDs. I have every CD-ROM I have in it. They come up to 160 CDs.

Audio CDs aren't in the binder, because I'd prefer to be able to keep them in my car, or in my bookbag, or wherever else they're needed.

vacation
I'm heading up to visit my mom and brother in Georgia again. I'll probably be leaving around 18 Dec.

screw your courage to the sticking-place
