a day off

I decided to use one of my remaining floating holidays today. I got
my hair cut, then went over to Fry's and Tower Records. When I got
home, I watched the TBS Mets-Braves game and the Fox Sports
Giants-Padres game. I also got in a fair amount of piano practice.

The Mets-Braves game commemmorated Hank Aaron's 715th home run, hit on
April 8th, 1974. I remember watching the game when I was a kid. In
honor of the event, the Braves dressed in 1974-style uniforms.

That reminds me...I owe you an interview:

1. Was the piano your instrument when you went for your music degree at UCLA? If so, when did you first start playing it, and how much formal training have you had?

2. Do you have any plans for yourself once you're "freed" from Altavista, career-wise or other?

3. What do you want to do with your life that you haven't yet done?

4. What's your favorite movie?

5. You're stranded on a desert island. You have all the necessities of life with you. What one "luxury item" would you want with you, and why?

I'll get around to this when I have a chance to do the interview, but
I wanted to point out that in 1992, I got my MSCS, not a music degree,
at UCLA. I went to UCLA extension afterwards to take some music
courses. At the time, I wanted to change careers to music (long
story), and I had been advised to go to UCLA extension since UCLA did
not allow people who already had bachelor's degrees to register as
full-time students in a BA program.

BTW, just a few days ago in singers, I encountered
nhowells91, with whom I had discussions about music careers
back then. It is funny, because I probably have even more reason now
to be discouraged about the computer industry than I was back then,
but I have no particular desire to pursue a music degree or career.
If anything, I'm more concerned about the computer science and math
I've forgotten due to lack of use.
