Evening of Recollection

Excerpt: “Should Ms. Fluke give up a cup or two of coffee at Starbucks each month to pay for her birth control, or should Georgetown give up its religion? Even a first-year law student should know where the Constitution comes down on that.” (via the WSJ) 6:28am

Ah, so the news is official now: Qualcomm Scores Big: Eric Demers, Former AMD CTO Joins the Company. I've known for a while, but had to wait for news to officially percolate out. 6:29am

Good morning! I dropped the girls off at their schools. As is usual with them, there was about a minute to spare before the bell rang. From there I listened to the second half of TWiT #343 along the commute into Boxborough. Sunny but chilly morning, only around 15°F. 9:00am

How Jon Stewart might have commented on the HHS testimony of Georgetown Law Student Sandra Fluke if she had been a conservative advocate for contraceptive coverage. If there was any doubt about his politics, this exposes it. 10:18am

How Qualcomm's S4 Krait processors take on NVIDIA Tegra 3, TI OMAP5. Read why we have some of the fastest, and yet most power efficient ARM-compatible processors out there. When our dual core Kraits consistently out benchmark NVIDIA's quad core Tegra, we must be doin' something right. Now can we interest you in our new quad core chips? 5:31pm

Left work around 5:30. During the drive I caught a little bit of Patrick Madrid's radio show when my dad called. We caught up on news for the rest of my drive up to St. Elizabeth Seton Church in Bedford, NH. 6:40pm

Spent the night at an Opus Dei Evening of Recollection for Confession, prayer, talks, and adoration. Always time well spent! Since I'd missed dinner, I stopped by McD's on the way home for a late take out bite. When I got home Claire was still up doing her trigonometry homework, so she “helped” me eat my snack. 9:40pm

Watched a bit of episode 3 of Fr. Barron's DVD series. Exhausted. Good night all! 10:00pm

“The greatest among you must be your servant.
Whoever exalts himself will be humbled;
but whoever humbles himself will be exalted.”
Matthew 23
