CEE Video

The Civil and Environmental Engineering department at the University of Illinois made a video about how cool it is to be a student at UIUC. They used a bunch of pictures of my friends in the video. As you can see, I have a racially diverse group of friends, and pictures of this racially diverse group make for good promotional material!

Video was temporarily removed from their site, so I have archived it here:

More Trillian Problems

Thanks to Evan for pointing out a tip to make Trillian load faster. Removal of the a/v plugin does indeed help speed the load time of the program.

A mention here about disabling the show loading screen also helped speed startup.

Those two tweaks helped, but Trillian still seems to have a problem in startup with Vista. Perhaps (well, for sure) Vista is the problem.
