Cogent & TeliaSonera make nice

After breaking off connectivity Cogent & TeliaSonera have resumed peering which is wonderful news for everyone, especially the two ISPs customers. As of right now neither Telia or Cogent have issued press releases.

You can verify that the bits are flowing by taking a peek at telia's or cogents looking glasses and running a traceroute.

Its pi day!

Today is pi day (3/14 , 3.14)! I'm going to be brining in some pie (the edible kind) into work today, and I'd encourage all math nerds to do the same.No doubt my university will be celibrating, but I'm all the way over on the west coast working on Co-Op for MS (where I don't think they provide the pie) so I must provide my own pie.

Some people insist on waiting until 1:59pm to enjoy pie so its 3.14159, but I'm not a true mathy (CS, although I do my best to blend in) so I'm going to have my pie when I get hungry instead.

In an informal survey (sample size of 4) 100% of people asked for strawberry rhubarb, so I'll be bringing that in (along with the cheapest pie I can find).

Happy pi day calibrations!

Update: A coworker pointed me to this trippy pi video
