Foodie 2: Banana Cinnamon Buttermilk Pancakes

It's little bit of a late post, but I wanted to share one of my cooking ventures. I like experimenting with foods (occasionally), so this won't be the last post about food.

However, Monday of finals week (6/4), Lorice and I cooked pancakes for breakfast. They were banana cinnamon buttermilk pancakes, and they were pretty good with a little maple syrup, butter, and coconut shavings on them.

I may have gone a little overboard with my first pancake.

Splicing the Zune Transmitter

For a while now, my Zune HD has been broken. I'll be working to fix it this summer. However, I'm beginning to question if my Zune HD FM Transmitter might have some usefulness in the meantime.

I was driving to campus and I noticed that my Zune transmitter, even without a Zune plugged in, will transmit silence on whatever station it is set.

Now, personally, I've never been a fan of either Zune or Mac products that only work with said branded mp3 players. It occurred to me that maybe I could "hack" my Zune transmitter to be able to play with any device. All I would need to do is hook up a 3.5 mm jack to whatever lines the transmitter uses for audio. Then I could have that protruding form the back with a wire or something so either head can still be used.

Alta Devices Internship

As you can see in my previous blog post, I recently had an interview with Alta Devices in Santa Clara, CA.

I took the bus up to San Jose where my dad picked me up in my car and drove me to Alta Devices. I signed in, was welcomed, and then proceeded to meet with five different people at Alta, each for a half hour.
