I Apologize in Advance

Back when I was in college, I learned exactly two things from reading the student newspaper, The Exponent:

  1. Four-star Sudokus are still pretty easy.
  2. The best way to protect someone from a pun is to encrypt it using a monoalphabetic substitution cipher before publishing it.

As a demonstration of this latter fact, I offer you this:

WX D BMD VDPL SHAXQARHL QPEG BQPZB DVQOC XWPDE XDPCDBG YWW, W BOSSQBH CUHG RWZUC IDEE CUHRBHEYHB “BDYH DHAWB”.

And against my better judgement, I’ll even offer you the customary cryptogram hint: K equals X.

Music Applet Website Move

Music Applet has a new home on the web:

http://www.kuliniewicz.org/music-applet/

The old site will automatically redirect you to the new one for a while (at least, until Purdue gets around to shutting down my account on their servers). Updating your bookmarks is highly recommended.

To those of you who may be accessing Music Applet’s Arch repository, you’ll need to update the repository’s location. The following two commands should do it:


$ tla register-archive --delete kuliniew@purdue.edu--2004
$ tla register-archive kuliniew@purdue.edu--2004 http://www.kuliniewicz.org/arch

English Speakers Take Note

One comma is worth approximately $2.13 million.

Too bad you didn’t pay attention to grammar back in English class.
