So this is my first diary entry on advogato. I like the idea of sites that you can get lost in easily. I don't have much to say right now, I am feeling a bit ill. It was 80+ degrees in Central PA today, which didn't help either.

I am an undergraduate student at Bucknell University, which sucks. I am a senior and can't wait to get out of here.

Come June 26th, I will be moving out to the Bay Area of CA and working for Sun Microsystems. I will be working for a group called Internet Engineering. They do design, implementation and productization of network protocols for Solaris and other Sun products. I am excited, network protocols are my bag

some things I am currently working:

  • My stupid senior design project. Talk about complete waste of time. At Bucknell they choose your project for you and you have to make the best of it. Most people just reach the end of the semester with a load of crap they don't care about. My ego is keeping me from completely not caring, so we may have something nice. The project is so dumb, I don't even want to speak about it.
  • A web browser written in Smalltalk. My software eng class is using Squeak as a development environment. Squeak is cool, but certainly needs work. As a Java programmer, I find Smalltalk to be a very nice language. Hardest part about learning it was forgetting C++/Java syntax :)
  • JDHCP: API for DHCP in Java. Working on it you say? Haven't touched it in months. But after taking my software eng class, I feel very motivated to both refactor and write a testing suite for the API. A DHCP server project may be in my future too... but don't hold your breathe.

So be surprissed if I keep with the diary thing. :) nice to meet you.
