I read, write, code, and knit.

Of death and taxes

I did my taxes for 2004 yesterday, first time ever doing so (with the help of my dad). Thanks to the Ontario Sales Tax Credit, I get a refund. This also didn't apply to me . . . I'm too young. The form wasn't that hard to fill out, because most of the form did not apply to me.

That wasn't too helpful for my mathematics skills, which will be tested soon in a May 11 math contest at our university. My math teachers badgered me into going, but I don't think I'll regret it.

As you might notice (or not) I've added a Random Poll feature that I will be adding functionality to in the near future. IE users at 800x600 will probably see the Features column wrap awkwardly to the next line. This is a problem in the styles (width of the Poll box) but I'm too lazy to edit the markup now, so you'll just have to live with it until later.
