As a personal update I spent most of the day looking at graduate schools for Computer Science. They all want you to think that they are big and bad, but I don’t believe a lot of them. My only real fear about getting in stems from not actually having an undergraduate degree in Computer Science. I feel like with my strong background in math though I’m a shoe in for the “catch-up candidate.” I just hope someone has room for that. If not I will be pursuing another B.S. from somewhere, more than likely one of the school I apply to for graduate school.
Of course Some nice developments in the Linux world. Gentoo 2006.1 has been out for quite a while now, but I’m just now talking about it. The only major change was update to GCC 4.1.1. Which doesn’t really mean much to me except its newer so I assume it must be better. I don’t remember if I have told my story about the update from 3.x.x to 4.1.1. I will look back and report later if I have not. AMD bought ATI. How fitting is that really? The only two three letter acronyms in the business are now one. I would expected them to buy nVidia first actually, their smaller, probably cheaper. I guess it does make sense to buy ATI since they are on a downhill slope. That would make them a good deal. Maybe they can get their act together since AMD bought them, who knows? Only time will tell us how it goes. I personally prefer AMD, but I also prefer nVidia for my graphics card, so I hope this doesn’t prohibit me using them together. That would not be sexy.
Enjoy the Penguins!
