My name is Duncan Mak, this is my new nick. I used to be mustapha.

well, some people (like miguel and raph) still call me mustapha at times.

Anyhow, been working hard. It's good that the movie is shot, hopefully it won't come back all black. Been busy trying to help out the evolution build process.

Been reading Stopshowers!, a book about the creation of Windows NT. It's pretty interesting stuff. From what I gather, they did checkins without version control when they were working on NT ('91-'93, when i was still in elementary school) The book talked of a whiteboard in the Build lab for writing down names of files to check-in, and coders "working in the Build lab to hand in the code." How quaint!

Deep C Programming has been good. I really need to find time to code some shell stuff for Evolution now. Oh by the way, I'm happy that I got the only perfect score on my last AP Computer Science test.
