Migrating from Wordpress to Pelican

I've finally taken the plunge and migrated from my old Wordpress.com site to my new and (hopefully) improved Pelican-built site! If you're reading this, you probably have two questions: "why?" and "how?"...so let's tackle them in that order.

My First SSD (Intel 330, 180GB)

I actually bought my very first SSD last year during Black Friday, but I never got around to swapping out my hard drive until after exams, and to blog about it until now, heh. It's a 180GB Intel 330, snagged from Newegg for roughly $0.58/GB, which in ...

Review: CPSC 189

CPSC 189 is a relatively new course and is only worth 1 credit, but it sounded interesting enough that I decided to take it during summer session. I've always wanted a formal grounding in Python, and while I was somewhat disappointed to realize that the purpose of CPSC 189 ...


Review: CPSC 110+121+210

Here's my review for CPSC 110, 121, and 210, which I took in my 1st year as a UBC Science student, doing a major in computer science.

CPSC 110:
