It's been.. almost 2 years since I last posted. I have learned a lot and done a lot since then. Most of which have been projects for school. Currently working on a distributed proxy server of sorts. Short explanation: Make requests to the proxy server. If the requested file can be broken into parts, make sub requests to different number of proxy servers. This project is a part of a study on wireless networks I am doing at New Paltz. By the end of the semester (or possibly this week) I'll have a proof-of-concept command line only version that only requests files one at a time entered manually. By the end of the summer, full GUI proxy server. I was thinking after I have the proof of concept done, might try looking at other open source proxy servers and building on whats already been done. A lot of what I'm doing right now seems to be reinventing the wheel. This whole thing is in C, so I can get a better feel for the machine- memory management, etc. I am taking Computer Architecture right now, thats what inspired me to do this to myself. Thats all for now, hopefully I will post more often, definetely more often than every 2 years.
