I just stumbled upon this site today, because Farscape is not on, I am bored and its gotta be at least 80 degrees right now; so I thought I'd give this a shot.
Did a little bit of coding this morning, adding MacOS support to ZThreads, a C++ thread library I started some time ago. Unfortunely, my cable modem likes to cut out right when I'm in the middle of updating a CVS somewhere and leaves stable file locks that I have to wait for sf staff to remove. So the next release will be out monday when they get around to cleaning it out for me.
Other than that, been busy writting various papers. I've got about 5 that I'm working on right now for a couple conferences coming up in the next 6 mo's, so that's occupying a few cycles of brain power. Also, trying to learn japanese & read harry potter, and come up with a masters project, and work on this grant sponsored adaptive communication project, and watch the anime I've been meaning to get to, and a million other things that come and go.
See the trick here is, come up and implement something creative (distributed or grid computing oriented) complete the papers and complete the masters and write a paper about it for a conference in Japan next summer. I'd kill 3 birds with one stone; and I'd get to climb Mt. Fuji and see Tokyo Tower. Nice. If everything goes like I hope it will, I should be able to see some sort of monster, magic or technology destroy some part of the tower. Its unavoidable, at least according to the knowledge of that place I've gleened from my anime collection. What a great summer that'll be.
