I didn't defend in August. It was November.

Now I use my brain making motor oil work. That stuff is more complex than people realize.

So a year has passed...

...two more papers published, another in the submission queue. Advisor claims I'll be defending in August. Guess I will be, then. Downside is that I have nothing lined up for afterwards, and the prospects aren't looking too good. Of course, still waiting for the Federal Gov't to become less glacial and let me know about my application(s) I've sent in for positions at the National Labs.

It does raise a good question for people out there. I've been looking at a postdoc position in the UK (Univ. of Sheffield and Leeds), but the one thing I lack is a good handle on the old cost of living overseas, and Google hasn't been much help. Anyone out there have a good idea on cost of living in the north of England?

ObSoftware
Trying to beat the Mono JIT into submission on the Ultra 2 running Linux. Something is slightly different with how CPUs and exceptions are handled compared to Solaris (e.g. sysinfo calls to get the ISA of the machine. Solaris has it, Linux doesn't seem to). Worse, something bizzare showed up with the Vorbis# stuff...something is dead slow. I'll figure out what's wrong someday, but for now, it works well enough to be useful, but it's not perfect.

Blargh.

Busy. Rewriting paper. Moved pretty much completely to my other site

Other than that, watched some great college hockey over the past few months. It's (nearly) over now...

Today is a red letter day.

My Macromolecules paper has FINALLY been submitted.

Also, decided to play with some blogging software. Yes, I never thought I'd fall to those depths, but I have. If anyone cares, it is located here. Should spruce up the pages a bit...it's kinda fugly.

However, the "toy" to note is the "FishySidebar" link. That baby is the bomb (IMHO) if you have Mozilla. It converts the index.rdf into a Mozilla sidebar on the fly using libxslt. I have XSLT for rss 1.0, and 0.91. Should write one up for 0.90. The tough part was trying to get to XHTML 1.0 Strict compliance.

See, the problem is the following. The target attribute is not valid for XHTML 1.0 Strict. So, my current XSLT stylesheet has an ugly JS hack I found somewhere that pokes the DOM to add the target attribute. I don't like it. Anyone have a better suggestion?

Wow. Two months. I'm a lazy bastard.

Hackery

OSCON went well from what I've heard. My Vorbis# code seemed to survive...at least that is what people told me. So, I've moved onto another Mono task.

See, I just acquired a Sun Ultra2 with dual 300MHz UltraSPARC 2 CPUs. The Mono runtime didn't like SPARC too much. After reading some docs, learning a bit of SPARC assembly, and some hackery, mint (the Mono interpreter) can now do "Hello World". However, there is something busted somewhere...it can't do anything more complex than that...

Research

It's moving. Finished a talk and paper for the Venice conference. I leave tomorrow for that one...and my slides are still not printed out. Said Macromolecules paper still in limbo, but I think I have enough stuff to add to it now. Yea.
