  • Getting rid of some old Java textbooks

    I had been hanging on to these books in case I ever found myself wanting to do some Java programming. But as I’ve come to learn (mostly because of Python, but also through following the Perl 6 saga), languages change and evolve and so a couple books from nearly 20 years ago probably won’t be…

  • Twitter-like Post: A look into Cornell’s Past

    I am just sharing this because it’s about my alma mater, it’s a little funny in a geeky way, and I like Mark’s blog. Check out this story about CIT and Cornell labs.

  • Pao Bhangra!

    Which means “do Bhangra!” or “dance Bhangra!” Bhangra is a wonderful and catchy style of dance from the Punjab region of India. View this clip from the introduction to Pao Bhangra 1 at Cornell University! You can follow the link to Vimeo to see the rest of the clips, go to or come back…

  • Memories of Cornell

    As I went though my top 200 photos, this was had 121 views and I clicked on it. It gives me great memories of friends, but it reminds me of how happy I am to have graduated. School was stressful and I always felt like I was just one step away from failing out of…

  • I wish I had faster computers….

    I started upgrading my laptop from Fedora Core 3 to Fedora Core 4 today. After 9 hours it STILL wasn’t done. This is because I was installing it on a P3 600 Mhz computer. Hopefully I’ll get to play with it a little tomorrow. If not, I’ve got all the time after the wedding to…

  • Crazy things….

    This is not one coherent post, but a post about crazy things that have recently occurred. Crazy thing number 1: New York City Mayer, Mike Bloomberg, has announced that from now on the building code in NYC will state that for every toilet in a men’s room there must be two toilets in the women’s…

  • Thanks God!

    Got FIVE As this final semester of my four years at Cornell, so I just had to thank God for that.

    I now have a newly minted Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Phillips School of Electrical Engineering. So that’s it, I’m official now. I now have my first degree. How do I feel? I feel like I’m on summer vacation. Doesn’t feel any different than any other summer. It DOES feel…

  • life is good

    Life always good – today it was better than usual. Can’t talk about it right now because of professional reasons, but I just have to thank God for being in control and also giving me a little to chew on here and there so I don’t get too impatient. Also, later today, the big slope…

    the last day of my last year at Cornell….

  • a short one today

    I’m really busy trying to wrap up classes so that I can enjoy the last few weeks before graduating and being thrust into the “real world” so today’s post is just a minor observation. Of course, any of my long-time readers will know that as soon as I say that I’m too busy to post,…

  • Two down….three to go

    Today I finished up yet another class. The first one I finished up was a project where I was conducted a study for the School of Electrical Engineering to switch over to Linux and open source alternatives. I also published my study as my first publication at It was great to have one class…
