Went to Stanford today and had a Cat scan. Meow!
I learned a few things: Stanford has a huge medical complex (where the heck is *EAST* Radiology? Not North, not South… ah!); a Cat scan is actually a CT Scan, and NO it’s not the same as an MRI (says the technician); and no, I can’t get a copy of the data so that I can write a 3D visualization tool and fly around in my body. Drat!
All in all it went well, however. I was in and out of there in about an hour, and the scan itself only took about 5 minutes max. Apparently it’s higher resolution than an MRI, but then, they also blast your body with a zillion X-rays as opposed to using magnets, so there’s your trade-off. I’ll be curious to see how it comes out.
In other news, we have a worldwide third-party group meeting tomorrow up at the Mandarin Oriental in San Francisco. Yahoo! Now *that’s* a nice hotel. We stayed there once before for a GDC advisory board meeting. Should be a good time.
Welllll, okay, I decided I’d finally start writing some entries here. Please pardon the shabby state of my website! Each directory has its own style, each page written in a different manner… it’s almost as if someone used VI to code the whole thing. (uhhhhhh…)
Sooo, just a few notes for now. Nothing fancy. I’ve added a few pictures of GDC 2004. I put a few links here and there. I fretted about the ugliness of the site. One of these days, I might actually buy Dreamweaver and make this thing pretty – but that would be a drastic step!
Those of you who know me know I’ve been feeling lousy lately. Still haven’t sorted that out, but I’m getting an MRI tomorrow (Monday) to compare against the one we did last August. I bet it will come out clean, just like the blood tests and Xrays have. Sigh. I guess it’s great news that I’m so healthy, but not when I FEEL LOUSY! Oh well. 🙂 We’ll get this sorted out eventually.
I just heard Captain Janeway from Star Trek:Voyager doing a Ford commercial. WHAT HAS THE WORLD COME TO???
