My new favorite thing

- Blog

Back when I did my arcade machine, I encountered two pretty big problems. First of all, writing the code to mimick a USB keyboard was not straightforward at all, and I resorted to copying some sample code and modifying it. But I didn’t understand the sample code at all. I know the TI boards are probably aimed at a more hardcode audience, one that wants to have as much control over the hardware as possibl, and while I usually love that sort of thing, there are days where I want to just write simple code.

Spring 2018 Semester-in-Review

- Blog

My last semester is over, which is pretty sad. I was pretty busy for most of it, so this is actually my very first blog post all semester; I didn’t even do a semester in review post for last semester, other than the “What I’ve Been Up To” post. I did finally finish my GameCube adapter for the front of my computer, though. So, I took A History of Computing, Ethics, CSE Service Projects, and Introduction to Droid Building, and I did undergraduate research.

What I've been up to

- Blog

This semester has definitely been my busiest. I know there are a few projects that I started and haven’t had any updates on for a while now, so I figured I’d make a general update post.

Progress on a GameCube adapter for ozai

- Blog

I’m totally doing that GameCube controller adapter in my 5.25” drive bay thing. I’m pretty close to done with the 3D model, and I am currently looking into 3D printing it. I also got some COTS parts to help me. I fully expect to be done this soon, like, this week soon.

Why build a PC and not buy one?

- Blog

Many people build their own PCs. Many of them do it because it can be cheaper, and many do it to have something completely custom for themselves. For me, it was a little of A, and a little of B. Despite having chosen the parts myself, there is a chance someone has a build just like mine - and if you only go by appearances, my build isn’t that unique. I have to fix that.

Spring 2017 Semester-in-Review

- Blog

Another semester is over, one that happened to be my first semester where I was allowed to take only Computer Science courses. So, I took Paradigms, Operating System Principles, CSE Service Projects, Hackers of the Bazaar, and Mobile Computing, and I did undergraduate research. The projects in Operating System Principles were all fairly straightforward, but the last one involved writing a file system of sorts which was cool, but there was no room to do what I wanted, so I will only discuss the other courses.
