Looks like it’s been more than a year since the last time I’ve published something here. I’ve just been really busy, now more than ever. I have been periodically saving some blurbs as drafts but I never quite seem to have the time to polish them into real posts.

I really should be working on my thesis and a number of other papers but it does get a bit tiresome. Whenever that happens, I’ll work a bit on the drafts as a distraction and hopefully manage to push a few of them out over the coming weeks…

First day at DoCoMo

by on Jan.09, 2006, under Life

Thus starts my first day at work. I’ve already got 2 papers to read and a meeting scheduled for later today. Got a brand new computer (HP Compaq DC5100) running only Win XP :(. For the kind of work I’ll be doing (software development), I would have liked a *nix based machine. Apparently the simulation workstations are *nix so I’ll have to make do with Xwin32 for the next 6 months.

Well .. at least I still have my own PC which should become net active again sometime after next weekend.

Alright then, back to my reading. Good luck to me! 🙂

Picture of the Moon

by on Dec.18, 2005, under Art, Life

For a while now I’ve been thinking of photographing the moon. It was a clear night and I finally got around to doing exactly that:

I used my Fujifilm FinePix S5100 (Black&White mode, ISO 200) at a combined maximum zoom of 360x. Then I used Photoshop to increase the contrast a little. I’m quite surprised with the result — didn’t expect this from a consumer grade digicam.

First blog

by on Aug.19, 2005, under Life

Well .. I’ve been giving this some thought .. the main motivation behind starting this thing is the fact that I seem to forget a lot of the stuff that I found out digging through the web, linux man pages etc.. let this be my (somewhat) permanent record of the things I do .. to save myself the trouble of backtracking through memory lane…

I guess this will be mostly computer related .. Linux, TeX, etc..
