Still Alive!

by Ian on May.16, 2011, under Announcements, Life

So this last semester was hectic! Trying to graduate, you know? Well it looks like I succeeded!

Redacted the mailing address and some info you don't need. :P

Redacted the mailing address and some info you don't need. :P

This means that I’ll be moving out to San Francisco, California at the end of June and starting work as a Software Engineer at Zynga at the start of July!  In the meantime I am going to try to work through my backlog of projects, so you should be seeing more in this space soon.

For now I’ll share a quick video of an AI project I worked on this past semester:

It was definitely a fun little challenge to make an AI that can play Mario! Hopefully I can find some to tinker with this sort of thing some more.

Day 1

by Ian on Aug.17, 2009, under Life, Uncategorized

I am back from a great journey for fame and fortune; I fought great battles against an insurmountable foe, and I was victorious.


Ok, so I just had a summer internship… but that was an adventure in itself. Enough of one, at least, to render me unable to update either of my websites. (Not having an adequate laptop also contributed to that fact…)

Now I am back at school, taking a few interesting classes, and hopefully finding time for the plethora of projects I have on my itinerary. I have no idea when everything will be back to how it was pre-employment, but I promise it will be back to business as usual soon… ish.

I hope those of you that are starting classes have/had/will have a wonderful first day!

How Nerds Do Movie Night.

by Ian on Jun.06, 2009, under Life

Most nerds have a “Star Wars Movie Night.” Real nerds watch the original, Han shot first edition of the movies. Only the nerdiest of nerds watch it on Laserdisk.

Disk Comparison

One provides high fidelity uncompressed analog video, CD quality audio, and is a supperior frisbee. The other is convenient and fits in your pocket.

On Laserdisk, the Star Wars trilogy takes up 9 disks the size of dinner plates, storing 180 gigabytes of data per disk, which have to be flipped/changed every 30 minutes. But it is worth it to pay hommage to the format that proves that superrior quality is trumped by convenience; to honor a format before its time.  

 

At three times the size of an Xbox 360, a Laserdisk player is not compact by any stretch of the imagination. Though, what did you expect for a disk format that is 12" in diameter!

All in all movie night was great.  It was nice seeing the original films again without any post-post-production “improvements.  The effects, especially in the second and third movies, are amazing for the time period.  If you can, I recomend trying to find a copy of the originals… preferably on Laserdisk, but if you ae the type that likes to relax and just enjoy a film, donyt worry I won’t judge you.

That’s all for now!
