Not much has happened, as usual. My sister came and visited
me during the end of the week, which was cool. I started working at
the VA Medical Center. It’s a chill job, really easy so far (knock on
wood). What else? Microsoft offered me a job, so I’m considering it.
I really like Seattle, and Microsoft itself, so I’m very strongly leaning
towards yes.

Well, it’s been a good couple of past few days. I went to
Seattle for a little bit last week to interview with Microsoft. I don’t
care what anybody says, they’re a very cool company. Then the weekend
came and I saw Bridget Jones’ Diary, which was amusing and fun. So,
here starts another weeks, along with a new job at the VA Medical Center.

Well, it’s been a long time since an update, I’ve been really
busy taking care of life. Over Spring Break, I went with my girlfriend
to New Jersey and New York. I still have to get pictures developed,
but when I do I’m sure I’ll put some up here. School is looking like
goodness, and hopefully will be easy until it ends. I’m most likely
going to start a new job at the Veterans
Affairs Medical Center
so that should be good. As of yesterday,
I signed my resignation and disassociation with my company, Strevda.
It’s bittersweet in a way: I’m sad to leave something that I’ve put
so much work into, but yet I’m happy to have my life back in my hands.

Saw Weezer in concert at RIMAC. They rocked. A very very
cool show. It’s finals time again, so that means life sucks. Nothing
else new going on right now, just the same old same old, except at Strevda.
But that’s always drama.

3.04.2001: A street sign in Boston, MA (C) Eric Lai 1998 Not much going on over here. Got a new page in my projects section which
shows how to browse a SMB (Microsoft)
network using the Samba tools for
Unix. Check it out at Things. Today’s picture
is from a trip I took back in December of ’99 to Boston.

So, Juvenille, Lucy Pearl, and Sprung Monkey were supposed
to play a free concert last night. Due to the bunkness that is UCSD,
Juvenille didn’t show up, so nobody wanted to go. Kill ’em all.

Done with the latest midterm, I’ve decided to try to work
on a hydroponics bay to grow potatoes or something like that in my appartment.
However, the lack of job right now coupled with the low cash reserves
is going to put this project on indefinite hold.

Went to Disneyland and California Adventure over the weekend,
will write more soon. However, now for the quote of the day: “The California
crunch really is the result of not enough power-generating plants and
then not enough power to power the power of generating plants.”— George
W. Bush, in an interview with the New York Times, Jan. 14, 2001

Nothing new to speak of. I put links on matchAndGo
so you can view the source code to the pages that run the site. It should
be a pretty helpful to anybody wanting to see how a full working ASP/SQL
site works.

2.11.2001: Splorg's RC5-64 Server
I went to my parent’s place for the weekend and relaxed. My sister had
her high school’s MUN conference,
where I helped as an errand boy and gave guest speeches. Ah, the days
of high school. How grand they were. As a token of high school days,
here’s a picture of when Splorg
used to run a distributed.net
key server.
