Madison Disc Golf – Here I Come

As the snow is starting to melt after the 16 inch snowfall last weekend, I am increasingly looking forward to getting outside to start playing disc golf. I've been looking around online and it looks as though Madison has a pretty large disc golf community, from the Madison Area Disc Golf Club which hosts weekly leagues during the summer, as well as a UW-Madison Disc Team, which started up as a club last fall.

Innova Skill Shot Disc Golf Basket

After about a week of deliberating, I have decided to purchase the Innova Skill Shot Disc Golf Basket. The main thing that attracted me to this was that it is portable and comes with a carrying case, so I can easily pack it up and bring it to a park, or set it up in my backyard, and start putting on the fly. I also ordered with it 3 new putters, to go along with my current 2, to help me get some solid putting practice in.

Madison Cable Internet: Charter Special

I signed a lease today for a studio apartment right downtown, and only 2 blocks away from the Madison Computer Science department, a place I will be spending alot of time the next two semesters. Now that I am moving, something I dread every year, it is time to start looking into getting everything settled. All utilities are included in my studio, however I still need to deal with Internet, I have decided to resist the urge for cable TV.

UW-Madison Fall 2007 Tuition

Summer is creeping to an end, and it is almost time to start thinking about school. And with the coming of school comes thoughts of how to pay for everything. After working all summer long, students finally have some cash, however increasing tuition and housing will take a large portion of that, unless your a coastie and you get your parents to pay for everything for you.

Madison Drink Specials

Do you live in Madison, WI? Do you like to go to bars? Do you hate when you have to pay $4 for a beer? Me too, thats why I created the Madison Drink Special Widget on the new Campus Atlas that was just released. Now you can get your drink specials for the day to any of the bars around Madison. You can also see all the drink specials a bar has for the entire week. Need directions? No problemo, just click on the bar name, and a pop-up window will show with a Google Map and a quick link for you to get directions. Pretty sweet, eh?

UW Disc Golf Course In the Making?

The UW disc golf club had their spring potluck kickoff meeting, with great success. Alot of people showed up, there was some mountain creek drinking, and a putting competition, which I would like to say, I won a sweet purple t-shirt. At the meeting, they stressed that the club was about going out and disc golfing and having fun, which is a pretty sweet way to go.

Too Many Ideas, Too Little Time

Man oh Man is the summer rolling by faster than ever. At the beginning of summer, I was all excited to be done with school so I could work on some projects that I've had in mind. However, as the summer progresses, it seems like I am generating more and more ideas on websites that I would like to make and think could really take off. However, alot of work must go into building a website, its not something that can be done overnight.

Madison Acropolis, no more Taco Johns on Regent

During the last week of summer I went on vacation to Montana. When I left, the corner of Regent and Orchard street was inhabited by the all mighty Taco Johns restaurant, which boasted tasty potato ole's, Taco Tuesdays, (59 cent tacos) and 6 packs and a pound (6 tacos and a pound of potato ole's). Upon my return from my trip to Montana, the Taco Johns sign was replaced with a new blue sign with the writing, "Acropolis". This really pissed me off considering I used to go to Taco Johns minimum twice a week, being only 2 blocks from work at the Computer Science department, and 1 block from my new apartment. Check out this thread on the daily page about others concerns about the Acropolis Takeover.

ASM groceries? WTF?

ASM, Madison's great student government has come up with the great idea to try and implement a Student Grocery store. Yes that is not a joke. Just like they tried to start a book rental program, which I haven't seen at all. The idea is to give people without access to a car a reasonable option to get groceries to their house. Lets take a look at a students current options to get groceries.
