Andrew's web sight
go on and see what's new!
- getting my bachelors in CompEng
- senior project: implementing the MIPS architecture as described in patterson & hennessy in VHDL, synthesizing it to a FPGA, tricking it into running programs.
trying to get back into web and desktop programming
- brush up on C (review k&r, deep c secrets, practice of programming)
- learn some Go because that shit looks phat (read tgpl)
- find a book or something that goes over simple html/css/js and isn't dumb as hell. this classic or this is the ideal. i could pretty much copy and paste the css from those but i like to have print references for stuff :)
- learn some legit web programming stuff. cgi? sql? shit dude who knows.
- write some programs. maybe some blog software or a site generator. tinychan 1.0 clone. something that will let me write markdown on my computer and have the html appear here. (!!)
- (i know for a fact that im gonna write an assembler for the senior project; professor said machine code to binary code is a one-to-one deal so AWK seems appropriate)
similarly, trying to get back into unix (or general OS) stuff.
- step one: set up an OpenBSD vm
- step two: learn something new everyday :-)
- potentially useful books: absolute openbsd, that tanenbaum one
trying to learn how git werx. need to start uploading my projects. will report back with a nice tutorial page when i find one. this looks cool but im not even sure what it is.
looking for a web browser that doesn't SUCK
- pale moon, icecat, waterfox look alright. i need to do some research and see if there's any security issues. my intuition tells me that the most secure browser would be
the latest and the greatest from a big team of engineers, but i could be wrong.
- only pale moon and waterfox seem to be explicitly anti-telemetry so that puts them higher on the list.
- i guess my last resort would be firefox but tweaked to hell to turn off the dumb stuff
playing around with ABA techniques to keep a short leash on myself so i don't neglect my duties. ideally i should be doing this all the time but i've fallen into a lull as of late some im just kind of winging it 24/7.
trying to throw together a strength training routine, or at least do some pushups once in a while.
- "currently" reading bodyweight strength training anantomy by bret contreras. cool book.
improving my social skills :-]
