Apparently the sensitive joints of people with arthritis feel the pre-storm increase of barometric pressure. A younger girl at work has some form of arthritis in her feet, and she says her feet ache painfully some hours before the climax of any wet weather. It's logical, but it's funny to think of an old man in a rocking chair on the porch mumble, "it's gonna rain today..." and be right 99% of the time. That's one more reason for my grandparents not to care for TV, they don't even need the weather channel!
Anyway, Phish is the most awesome band ever.
I finished chapter 7 of AI Techniques for Game Programming last night. The chapter finally introduced neural networks; up until now it's just been genetic algorithms. Using genetic algorithsm with neural networks- amazing! This is really fascinating stuff and I can't wait to code my first neural network. I'll have to think of a neat problem to solve. I created my first genetic algorithm last night and made it easy to play around with (run-time editable), and that was enough to keep me entertained. But stick a neural network in there! Wooo.
I'll post my genetic algorithm program tonight. It's nothing special, but it can be cool to watch. Just a simple pathfinding program.
