Blog Update, Google Summer of Code, and all that jazz!

/b0rked - Real Life Considered Harmful - Mon, 21/04/2008 - 8:06pm

It has been a while ever since I posted anything in here. Anyways, my proposal to Google Summer of Code has been accepted, you may have a look at it here. I am so excited I am feeling nauseous :P. It also happens that my friend Ahmed Darwish’s proposal has also been accepted. So I am anticipating a real exciting summer coming ahead, just wish us luck :).

On College and the Real World!

This is a reply I sent to a thread posted on Google Summer of Code mailing list and I though about putting it here as it sums up my view about the problem we face when we are faced by real-life challenges while mainly having an academic background, here it goes:

I just deactivated my fakebook acount!

As for my “social networking” needs, is my cup of tea, and it’s really enough for me, at least it’s authentic and original!

That’s my profile if you’re _really_ curious about my musical taste.

Oh, and let’s not forget to mention that social networking for grown-ups does indeed exist.

One of These Days*

/b0rked - Real Life Considered Harmful - Wed, 28/11/2007 - 8:16pm

Staring your day attending a lecture where you can’t get anything, then get together with a colleague for some meeting and waiting them for two hours only to tell you they’ll postpone it, getting squeezed in a -supposedly- air conditioned bus (where no one should be left to stand in the first place), and ending it by a quarrel with a low-life microbus driver.

Tell me about bad days, baby!

…And Speaking of Vacation

Seems my newly found fandom for Pink Floyd is turning into an addiction. And in spirit of me finally taking the vacation, I present you with yet another Pink Floyd video.

And here are the lyrics if you’re interested.

x86 floating point unit sucks! (N.B.: This is a completely biased view based on frustrations of an assembly language n00b)

This Semester’s To-Do List

/b0rked - Real Life Considered Harmful - Tue, 13/02/2007 - 11:15am
Since we been assigned an assortment of the worst faculty members to teach us this semester - as usual - (and don’t get me wrong, there are still bright people teaching us, fortunately there are always exceptions) , I decided to put college aside a little this semester as it’d be of no point of [...]

Just a Thought!

/b0rked - Real Life Considered Harmful - Fri, 26/01/2007 - 11:11am
Is it a coincidence that the front page of today’s issue of government-owned Ahram newspaper features an editorial article about the “Danger of the Iranian Role in the Region”, and that today’s speech at the mosque by an Imam -who happens to be appointed by the government of course- was all dedicated to show how [...]
