Endeavors

. . . nothing contributes so much to tranquilize the mind as a steady purpose . . .

In reality this is basically a catch-all section combining the older "Projects" and "Miscellanea" sections.

Projects

World domination, one project at a time

metachory - The first virtual, distributed OS kernel. Ie, my research and dissertation.

Buffer Overflows and You - Spring 2010 project for CS 526 (Information Security).
ECE 477 Senior Design Group 12 (Spring '04) - Our project for Senior Design that consumed over 203 hours of my life :-). Also hands down the one class where I learned the most at Purdue.
The Atomic Age: A Brief Overview - Our final exam project for AP History my junior year in high school. Surprisingly many people have commented on how good it is, so I decided to leave it available here to the public.
