My PyX Tutorial for Gnuplot Users. This assumes you know Gnuplot (a decent graphing package) and Python (an excellent scripting language). PyX itself is a very powerful LaTeX-based graphing library for Python. You know, just in case you weren't coding enough.

  • GeoCaching (A gigantic GPS-required worldwide buried treasure hunt. AKA a centralized method of telling people all over the world where they ought to go hiking and what places are "cool.")

  • Teaching - If you are taking or thinking of taking a class from me, read the reviews on Rate My Professors.com. I can be strict, and there are certainly those (like the students that give me all 1's) that really hate me, but I do care a lot about whether you learn the material, and I don't assign meaningless work. It is very rare for me to refuse to help someone, even if it means coming in at odd hours and spending a lot of time on things. If you fail, it is your fault.
  • wxPython - The best GUI toolkit around.
