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.

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.

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.

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.

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...

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.

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, is emailing all project owners and asking them to verify their associated public ssh keys. The email points you to verify your keys at:

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/

The output will look something like:

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

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

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