New look yet again...

Felt kinda tired about the look of my blog, and I decided to go with a
more minimalistic approach to blogging. I also forgot about my
traditional website look and put the sidebar at the right -- this way
people get to read the post first before other things regarding my
blog. In case people didn't notice, the last time I used the right hand
sidebar was with the first time I used the blog. I don't know why I
prefered having the sidebar on the left, when it's a known fact (or
concept) that english and thus the first thing you read is usually at
the left side of the page/sentence/word. Unless of course you look from
the right to your left, which is something I wouldn't want to talk
about anytime soon.

I definitely like the new look now, however I might consider using a
different color scheme, knowing that my favorite color is blue, and the
best shade for me would be grey. I'm not sure if that last statement
made sense, but I remember someone telling me that black/white are not
colors, rather degrees of shade -- black being the haviest shading,
while white would be the lack thereof. I also remember from high school
science wherein the techer would repeatedly cite the visible light
spectrum, and that the combination of all the light colors/frequencies
consisted white light, while the lack thereof would be black.

In any sense, I wouldn't want to get technical about color, but I have
just been starting with the technicalities of my thesis. I've recently
finished coding the prime number finding application with the MRADA
algorithm -- take note, coding. I'll be testing the thing around monday
when I finally start completing my deficiencies in college -- to make
up for lost time, I would have to work 3x smarter than I would if I had
taken care of those things in the outset. Anyhow, I believe I could get
throught these things ASAP, since I don't like rotting in this dung
hole I call the Philippines.

I've also been able recently to complete (or at least accomplish most
of the things regarding) my thesis' methodology. I should be able to
print it tomorrow and have it proof read by my adviser on Monday. On
the same day I should be able to gather all the notes I will need to
complete my Chapter on related literature. By the end of the month I
should have a semblance of a manuscript ready for the scrutiny of the
people at our institute. I should also have been able to run the tests
on the ASTI, ICS and the AGILA cluster. On which time, I should also be
able to tell whether or not I would be able to accomplish everything by
the 3rd of september of this year.

Until that time, I should get working.

Chill...

Futures and Options III: Economics, Journalism, or Computer Science

I realise it's been a year since my previous post on this blog, and I've found myself having very little time to do another "brain dump" on the subject of my early choices in life. With that in mind (and as I'll be traveling again soon) I get to think a little more and reflect on a few of the things that have happened.

Much like the previous post, this one's set in high school -- where I was part of the swimming team, in a band, had been programming with Turbo Pascal, Java, and then C++ later on, and was about to make a choice that would literally change the course of my life. This one is about the choices I made, and the ones that were made for me.

Note: This is part 3 of a series about my early choices in life which have gotten me to where I am today. I would greatly appreciate your feedback and thoughts, as well as for your reading through this series!


Writing Again

It's 2019 and I just realised that I've not written on this blog for a long while. I feel a little bad about this so I'm picking it back up again. More importantly, I've limited my social media to just Twitter (I've deleted all my Facebook-related accounts) and will be writing more on the blog instead of engaging in other social media sites. If you want to reach me directly, you can also reach me through my keybase.io account for encrypted communication. If you have my phone number, you can also contact me through Signal. Quite a number of things have happened in the past few years and here's a quick update on things that I can share:

I've been working on XRay, a function call tracing system now part of the LLVM project. This took a good two and some years of my time at Google.Most recently I've moved to the Chrome Operations Team still here in Google Sydney. I can't give specifics yet of what I'll be working on, so stay tuned.There've been c…

Rant: Despair and Hopelessness

This weekend I had the chance to do a Google+ hangout with my father in the Philippines. He and I don't talk often but we do have a very good relationship. My dad is cool like that. In this hangout we talked about a few things happening in the Philippines and I've gotten the feeling that my homeland is getting ever deeper into economic disrepair, and that the politics to which I've come to be hopeless on is beyond repair. I've wanted to get something off my chest that's been bothering me for a while now, so if you would indulge me please read on.

Background

I grew up in a part of the Philippines where the land is fertile, there are thriving industries, and there's a certain sense of abundance and stability. This part of the Philippines has good schools, good employment opportunities (mostly industrial and service industries), good investment opportunities (real-estate and agricultural), and good potential for growth. This was true when I was young and this is tr…
