Believe it or not, I actually updated snoot.org, adding a new design to the front page. Look for more updates soon, I guess! (encourage me on the message board!)

UPD: untitled.gif orchestra (19 Jun 2001 at 21:06)
untitled.gif orchestra (my bedroom acoustic indie rock project at mp3.com) just got a new song, Theme From Red Ninja X. I've got a new one "Theme from I.E.M." which I think is much better, but it'll probably be a week before that is accepted there.

UPD: Divide By Zero (18 Jun 2001 at 23:49)
In a weird fit of motivation, I actually did some work on snoot.org today (it's not up yet, but maybe soon), but I was caught short because I didn't have one of those cute tiny screen fonts that all the cool kids use. So, hey, I made one. It's called snoot.org pixel10 and it's at Divide By Zero.

UPD: ifcd/scrobble (18 Jun 2001 at 19:21)
I updated the scrobble game inside ifcd (my experimental irc server) with two new features: the ability to choose a lower-scoring word than your best, and the ability to check what words were worth after the round ends. The guys at work really like this game...

Here's a satellite picture of CMU and the surrounding areas, courtesy of some company that Microsoft bought.

Shootout, 2! (16 Jun 2001 at 00:26)
The MLton folks implemented the missing tests for their compiler in the Programming Language Shootout; that shot mlton pretty high up in the standings. Today I rewrote the reversefile benchmark; previously mlton ranked something like 12th, now it's 7 times faster and in 3rd place (#1 for memory use).

So check out the standings: MLton is tied for 2nd place with O'Caml, losing to C by only 1 point!

Don't believe anyone who says high-level languages are necessarily slow. Hooray!

NEW: mlftpd (14 Jun 2001 at 19:36)
I don't trust wu-ftpd or other ftp servers written in C, so I decided to rewrite one in ML. This one is buffer overflow free; you can get the source to mlftpd at sourceforge. This joins sfingerd in my project to rewrite all of the useful but untrustworthy network services in ML. Just you wait!

Shootout! (07 Jun 2001 at 19:19)
I submitted a program (in Standardish ML) to the fun Programming Languages Shootout Page today, for the echo client/server test. It comes in 4th in that benchmark, after C, C++, and O'caml (another ML).

The fact that my program runs only 12% slower than the C version (and is half as many lines of code) is a good argument for my plan of rewriting the standard internet services using MLton! (Which, by the way, I have been working on recently... I'm now tackling ftpd.)

Teach indeed! (07 Jun 2001 at 00:37)
Here's a great short page "That'll Teach You to Use The Internet!", which has both broken english and baiting. Great!

UPD: aphasia/weblog (06 Jun 2001 at 11:49)
I've added the ability to modify old entries in my weblog software, as well as some new functionality to aphasia.

This is a test! =)

NEW: Album-a-day #2 (04 Jun 2001 at 17:13)
logo Album-a-day:
· about
· latest
A second Installment in my Album-A-Day series. This one is a lot smoother than the last one, I think, with some genuine sing-songy numbers.

The album-a-day projects are part of my new movement known tentatively as "Crap Art". I'll get back to you on this once I figure out what it means, exactly. Here are the rules for album-a-day (from that page):

- Album must be written, recorded, mixed, arranged, post-produced (etc.) in one 24-hour period.

- No ideas from before the day!! No covers!

- Album must be at least 20 minutes or 30 songs

- No out-takes!

Graduation! (03 Jun 2001 at 13:04)
Graduation!
203×472 version
I graduated (only -14 days 'till the big event!) from CMU on 20 May 2001. My degree was in Computer Science, with a minor in Communication Design. I got University Honors and College Honors and a Senior Leadership Award (?). More pictures here.

My awesome advisor was there getting the Herbert A. Simon Teaching Award, the first one since Simon passed away last semester.

So now I tell everyone I am a "PhD Student" and I'm not even stretching the truth. Weird.

OK!! Back! (03 Jun 2001 at 12:11)
Well, though my computer was connected to the internet, a sleeping hard drive and a misbehaved DNS registry kept my sites offline for 12 days or so. But now everything is back, I think.

I've been moving into my new place. I don't have phone service yet, let alone internet, so it'll be a while before I can get on top of my projects again. I've also been working for CERT; I'll post more about my new place and about CERT soon.

A bunch of stuff is going on. Expect more updates soon!
