Internship

I’ve been working at my internship for almost 2 weeks now, and I’m really enjoying it. The last two summers were great, but this one has started of really well. I’m doing lots of interesting stuff, and much more stuff that I am really interested in and really passionate about.

Hopefully by the end of the summer I’ll be good at writing Linux device drivers, and I can contribute a new one to the kernel. That would be a dream come true, getting started in Linux kernel development.

Outsane

This was very excellent. It really made me laugh out loud for a while.

I Hate DRM

Here’s an excellent story explaning DRM in an exciting new way:

Once upon a time there was a man named Frank. Frank was just like any other Frank, albeit a bit more cynical and curious. Frank was walking through the park one day when he happened upon a curious sight of a glowing doorway. Being curious, he investigated this curious phenomenon with infinite impetuosity. Unbeknownst to him, this doorway led to the future. The sights he beheld on the other side of this time warp doorway continued to pique his innate curiosity. Frank wanted to know what was going on at the other side of this door and he quietly slid through it.

Spring Quarter Grades

Well, I’ve got some of my grades for Spring quarter, and I’ve got to say, I’m pleased. I was having quite a hard time in Statistics at the beginning of the quarter, but I got back the grade for that, and I got an A. I also got an A in CS370, but I pretty much knew how that was gonna turn out, so it wasn’t a surprise.

I’m hoping for an A in CS480, but we’ll see if I get it or not. Other than that, I think I’m going to get A’s in everything else. I’m pretty happy 🙂

Update: I didn’t get an A in CS480, I got a B+. Oh well, it sucks, but it’s not that bad. I’ve got an A in Aikido too, but I knew that was coming. Now all I’ve got to wait for is COM204 and HST370, which are hopefully both A’s.

Update 2: Yep, both were A’s. The total score is 5 A’s, 1 B+. All in all, a good quarter.

Wheee!

Yay! The quarter is almost over. I’ve been completely swamped for the last 10 weeks or so. (Note to self: don’t ever take 21 units again) All that’s left are finals, which should mostly be easy, since I’ve only got to take 3 of them, the other 2 are take home finals, and Aikido doesn’t count.

On another note, I’ve been working at learning LaTeX for the past couple of days, among other things. I’m using it to typeset my final in Statistics, and it sure does produce beautiful output. I’ll have to play with it more in the future.

That’s all for now, I’m back to studying!
