Over a year ago, my dusty old server at Caltech finally went down for the last time. When I flew back to visit, I saw the hard drive had crashed and was beyond repair. RIP, faithful Pentium III box. Your years of free, tireless service will never be forgotten.
I've finally settled on a hosting service and have migrated over what survived. I'll be updating a redesigning this site to reflect things that I've done in the two years post-Tech.
I just released a small open source utility for POSIX-compliant systems called into. This utility sidesteps the annoying impossibility of using a pipeline to update a file without first explicitly dumping to a temporary file.

Were it not for the campus police, Caltech would have converted MIT into our East Campus--a place for techers to study the humanities. Nevertheless, the website I made for Caltech's East campus can be found at east.caltech.edu.
A mirror can be found on this server here
The PNM image format is really useful when developing quick little image processing utilities, but there's very little support for it built into Mac OS X. To help remedy this problem, I have just released a quick look plugin for the PNM image format.

I just added a blog
to this site. I intend to use it to document solutions to various computer and programming-related problems I encounter or just cool things I come across. It happens too many times that I'll finally solve a problem only to run into it again a year or so later after forgetting the solution.
Who knows? Maybe with a little help from Google, others can find some use in it!
I have made a few changes to this website that hopefully will do something about the comment spam that has been plaguing it. I guess I'll just have to wait and see.
I spent a few days over winter break updating Graphite. I implemented several new features, but I still have a bit more testing I want to do. Unfortunately classes started a few weeks ago, and this term is shaping up to be quite difficult. Hopefully I'll get a chance one of these weekends.
One of the classes I'm taking, CS176
, involves weekly implementations of various graphics algorithms. I have posted a webpage for each of the first two assignments that I've finished:
CS176 HW1: Seam Carving
CS176 HW2: Texture Synthesis
The remaining assignments will be linked from my school page
when they are completed.
Apple just approved my graphing calculator, Graphite, for sale on the iTunes App Store. Read more about it here
I've finally finished Graphite, my graphing calculator for the iPhone and iPod touch. I'm just waiting now for it to be accepted to the iTunes application store. Check out the page for it
in the software section!
Ever since Caltech Housing/IMSS's epic failure at upgrading our ethernet cables, my server has been down. Lloyd's radio (server) room was without internet for several weeks. But, when the internet came back, my server didn't come back with it. I finally had some time tonight to investigate, and it turns out there were two problems: my server had been turned off (oops!), and the network switch to which it was connected wasn't plugged into the wall. At least it's back up now!
I finally have gotten around to writing a new website for myself. There is basically no content at the moment, but I will eventually add information on some (EE) projects I have done. I also plan to upload software I have written and interesting (?) school assignments.
