Spring is sprung, the grass is 'riz!

This evening, at exactly 8:07 Eastern Daylight Time, is the vernal equinox, the beginning of spring. The word "equinox" is from the Latin for "equal night." It defines that point at which the Sun crosses the equator from south to north, as nature is made anew in the Northern Hemisphere.

The weather in the Nation's capital today is mostly sunny, and sixty degrees. Tomorrow will be in the forties, but that will just be a fluke, as it gets warmer and starts raining later in the week. Judging from the long-range forecast, it would appear that the worst is over. Speaking of which, I finished school for the winter quarter. My very first javascript project is now online, and can be accessed by clicking on "Portfolio" in the section entitled "The Usual Suspects" (or be lazy and just click on it here). The username and password are both "etcetera" -- one word, all lower case, no quotes. Best results are with Firefox, as well as Netscape for Windows. The best news is that I just might get an above average grade, on account of a breakthrough in code-cracking that occurred this time yesterday.

Tomorrow I'm off, to go pick daisies (if I can find any) and catch up on my reading. Serious stuff, mind you, like how a bunch of math geeks figured out one of the biggest mathematical problems in history, as well as why the rest of us should care.
