These are the iBooks we used for one of the presentations in our CS350: Event Programming class. Look at all their majesty!

This is one of the oldest buildings on our campus here at St. Norbert. Apparently it used to be a high school. Now it’s the mostly-unused Pennings Activity Center. We came over here to watch the electric-train-based capstone presentations by this year’s Computer Science majors.
Our friend Tomoko met a guy who fought in World War II in the Philippines. Apparently he killed some Japanese soldier there, and found this flag in the dead guy’s helmet. He took it and kept it in hope of someday returning it to the dead soldier’s family. Now it’s Tomoko’s task to try to find this dude’s family based on the faint writing on the blood-stained flag. Written all over the flag are phrases of encouragement like _hisshou_ (certain victory) and _hyakusen hyakushou_ (one hundred battles, one hundred victories). On the left is a map of exactly where this guy was killed. This stuff just radiates history.
These are some ladybugs that I found lounging around in my brother’s garage.
This is some 20-something-years old bike that my brother restored for use by his kids.
I’m not entirely sure what this thing is. I went a little too far on the way to my brother Dave’s house and came across it out in the middle of some farmland. It looks like some sort of deconstructed water tower.
Here are Jon and Sangik playing Go on our new set. After we went to all that trouble to build our own Go set, our friend Taira came back from Japan and came by with this very old, very expensive Go set. He told us that he didn’t need it anymore and that we could have it. We were appropriately speechless. It is _nice_.
