Yeah so wow it's been what...like three months since I've used this. Well here's the deal, I've been doing some stuff lately involving C and I'm trying to understand it. I'm understanding it better than I ever did but it's still not "clicking" very well yet. I'm "getting there" though and that's a good thing as far as I can tell.

On the other side of things I am reading more about the history of the united States of America. I am also reading a lot about the laws of the past and the current implementation of law. It's a really sad thing to read though because of some of the blatant violations of those laws the united States government has committed. There are some very interesting sites to look over about the topic of government corruption and the ones to really look for are ones with code citings and regulation citings and executive order citings. They are generally better off because you can open up another browser window or run another instance of lynx or whatever and go to www.law.cornell.edu. Mind you, the site uses java on the front page so that pretty much sucks but you can access things like the U.S. Code, the constitution, and the U.S. code of federal regulations (coincides to some degree with the U.S. Code). There is more to it than just looking up the code and regulations. There is a large page on a .gov site, I forget the URL, with a cross reference of everything that is actually a law. If I find the URL I'll put it on here.

Basically all I've been doing is reading lately.
