Well, it's been a few days since my last diary entry, so I thought I'd give it another shot. We had a Purdue University IEEE Computer Society meeting in Purdue University Materials Science and Electrical Engineering building room B012 on Thursday where a few guys (and one woman :-) from IBM's S/390 Server group came and gave a presentation on their new server series. It was pretty interesting: their "Z Series" servers are supposed to have "zero downtime" (which is why it's called "Z Series"). They showed a typical IBM server of today with 12 CPUs being slightly redesigned to do real-time intimate server upgrades to the OS, BIOS, microcode, and other things. It was pretty cool, and I got free pizza out of the deal too.
Oh, that reminds me. I'm now one of the Vice Presidents of the Computer Society at Purdue University as well. Woot. ;)
I had a very bad week last week mostly because most nights I couldn't get to bed until 3 or 4am, and when you consider that on two mornings I had 7:30am classes... well, they both got skipped. And because I usually went to work right after these classes.. well, I skipped work too. :(
So I ended up sleeping a good portion of my weekend. I went to bed around 4am on Saturday morning and didn't get up until 1pm, and a few hours later took a short nap. Then I didn't get back to sleep until 6am today. :-(
Woke up at 3pm, did laundry & homework, and hacked some more. Then I went and bought 14" meat pizza, 7up, hawaiian punch, and 3/4 lb of sour candy. I think I've already been suffering from "Freshman 15" for a few months now, so... I really need to get back in shape. :-)
Later, freaks. Go wank off at amihotornot.com. :D
