I’ve been working a lot on a research project for one of my Professors which has most recently involved a lot of compiling on an old Sun (we need the 16GB of memory available on it :-) ). I spent literally two days trying to compile omnet++ and the INET suite. I finally managed to get it working after some consultation with the #solaris channel on freenode. Therein lies the problem. I think I’ve just dragged myself into irc by finding the #hamradio channel. I think ham radio is my nerdy guilty pleasure. By idling in that channel I’m finding out all sorts of interesting things, and again reviving this latent desire I have to get a ham license. For now, I may have to learn CW so I can use cwirc: http://users.skynet.be/ppc/cwirc/.
This semester has been interesting so far, but I’ve been focusing a little bit too much on my research at the expense of my other classes. I suppose that means I like the field I’ve chosen, so its not too bad… but I need to put some more time into studying for GEO and EE.
On the party watch:
Last week – Chris turned 21… boat party on lake austin! Chris knows lots of pretty girls. It was a good night.
This week – superhero party? This might be interesting.
