Welcome to Oostendorp.org. This is the messy existance that is
Robo (Rob Oostendorp) online.
May 17, 2004: Two more weeks and I graditate da college, Hope,
that is. Now that I've finished, I've finally updated the homework
page. Check it out.
Early January 2004: Happy new year everybody! 2004 is already on
its way. My 2004 resolution is non-existant. I just don't believe
in new years resolutions. It's kind of like how Steve
Bushemi doesn't believe in tipping
in Reservoir Dogs.
Lately I've been playing with my latest Tech-Toy, the Ipod.
The coolest addition is the voice
recorder which lets me take notes when I'm drinking with my
friends and too drunk to remember what I said the next day. Ahh
college. Another project that I worked on this summer (for about
an hour) was a HTML CD_COVER_MAKER
feel free to use it as much as you please.
May 11, 2003: Wow! Wow
again! So, one of our trees fell down earlier today. Check out
what I call my Maple Less directory for
the rest of the pic's (Note: I live on Maple Lane). .
April 1, 2003: Last weekend I was browsing the US
Patent database when I came across the worst idea I've
ever heard: The
covertible workout-bench coffee table. Yes. That's right, The
convertible workout-bench coffee table. Seriously, who would
ever puchase this!? What else is new? Xbox, Xbox, Xbox. I
hacked my Xbox up and am
now re-additcted to Nintendo games (Dr. Mario anyone?). I also just
got done putting out a hugh Marketing project. you can check it
Mid October, 2002: Found out that Ernst
& Young rejected me after an internship interview. Check out
the Resume & Rejection
Letter. I figured instead of framing rejection, I'd share it
with all of you! (L8er Skater Boi).
Mid July, 2002: I'm busy as hell. I wrote some sweet amazon_xml
code in perl that downloads and caches a book, dvd, and cd which
is displayed in a nodelet on it's corresponding node (based on the
engine). I also took another job position recently: I'm a technology
consultant for nfgllc.com. However,
my billable hours are now up to 70
a week. My last non-work related project was getting my new
Clie setup so
that I could justify using it to improve how I do work -- Or maybe
I just wanted a new MP3 player (wink). Lately, to get perspective,
I've spending most of my nights sitting outside on my roof smoking
my pipe and watching the
stars. Sad, I know, but what are ya suppose to do?... And with that
I bid you all a good morning, good evening, or good day.
Question: Does Alyson Hannigan from Buffy
the Vampire Slayer get hit on by women because she plays a lesbian
Another one of my plants died. Of
course it's gotta be June's picture of the month. During May I put
together a visual touch screen MP3 player, check it out in the audrey
Slashdot.org picked up my
review of Warcraft III Beta.
Time for "Yet Another Update". So it's spring break,
2002 and I'm working, of course. I just got done writing a short
review on Warcraft III Beta.
Check out my latest Slashdot
review on the Rio
Receiver. What else is new...Oh! I updated my homework
page, if you're in school, Hope College
in particular, check it out! That's all for now, move along...
Robo's Log: Virtual Date 23 February 2002. So my friend Josh has
been playing a lot of video games lately. Here
we see him working on winning the last race to get an S licence.
Hey! Check out
my new tv! I've
been gracing my tv with as much Kirsten
Dunst as possible lately. I also read The Brothers Karamazov
and Crime and Punishment By Fyodor Dostoevsky. And my favorite
picture of this month: The
Half Dead Plant. Want a good laugh? If you're not running on
a 56k modem, click here
for Brandon, and here
for the response by Trevor & Chocha. Watch Brandon first, then
watch Trevor and Chocha; Funny as hell. That's it for now!
It's mid december, 2001, just got done with exams. I've been playing
a lot of Civ III lately, kind
of getting bored though. I bought a Compaq
Ipaq IA-1 last week from Tiger
Direct for $99. Hacked it to get Jailbait
linux on it. It was a pain but well worth it. check out my Ipaq
page for more information.
