Climbed Mission Peak to get a great view of Silicon Valley, saw some great blues music, had many a good microbrew, and finished it off in San Francisco with Pride Weekend. Crazy awesome weekend.

I'm walking in the city minding my own business near the train station when I overhear two random people discussing radixsort's running time... Where else but here would that ever happen on a random street? Awesome.

Looks like student applications are due soon for GSoC 2012! I'd recommend this program highly to anyone who's interested. Had a great time coding with the Tianocore project last summer - great mentors and an interesting project.

For those looking for a movie to watch: I just finished Harakiri, a Japanese samurai film from 1962. Gorgeous moods and settings, strong symbolism, fantastic acting, superb camera work, and an amazing storyline. Easily one of my favorite movies of all time. I'm very glad I took Ebert's recommendation!

Ah, thanks a lot for the recommendations - I'll definitely check those out! Harakiri was kind of a one-off decision due to Ebert's recommendation, but I liked it so much I think I'll explore the whole Japanese cinema scene a bit more now! I've got Rashomon queued up as well.

Finding that I'm starting to write C declarations in go-form by accident instead of C-form since checking out golang. Thought it was awkward at first, but now it makes sense and seems easier to read.

Should http://c-faq.com/decl/spiral.anderson.html really be necessary to understand the type of a value?! :)

Writing a toy web server in C for fun and taking a 1 hour train ride with my roommate just to take a picture of the "1 Infinite Loop" sign at Apple HQ. Yeah, I don't think there's any question about my geekhood today.

Cycling, lifting, swimming, sushi downtown, beer tasting. Not a bad start to the week. Looking forward to BigDataCamp downtown tomorrow. Also on the lookout for free/cheap tech events and cons to attend this week in the Bay Area.

Dr. John's newest album, produced by Dan Auerbach, just came out. Sounds amazing! Love to see him live if I ever get the chance...

Quick and easy way to verify your Github keys and ensure your account wasn't tampered with (there was a security hole found recently).
 
Verifying your ssh keys on github

In response to a recent vulnerability, github.com is emailing all project owners and asking them to verify their associated public ssh keys. The email points you to verify your keys at: https://github.com/settings/ssh/audit

What they left out of the email was how you find your public key's signature locally. Fortunately, it's easy. Just run:

 $ ssh-keygen -lf ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub

The output will look something like:

 2048 ec:cc:40:10:dc:01:47:e1:0d:36:e2:4d:d2:89:41:01 .ssh/id_rsa.pub (RSA)

Verify this fingerprint against the keys listed on github, and you're done.

(Your key might also be under ~/.ssh/identity or ~/.ssh/id_dsa.pub, depending.)

Interesting ~500 line realtime OS for Atmel chips. I might have a go at tackling the source next week or so if I find the free time.
