Parallel Programming with PVM 6-13-09
Revision Date: 6-13-09
Type: Academic
Views: 2356
Complete

This is an interesting and helpful but decidedly not revolutionary article on a project I did during my last semester of college. The project was just a simple parallel program to be ran and benchmarked on both a cluster of computers and a multicore computer. The article contains a Flash version of a PowerPoint presentation I gave, a detailed explanation of every slide in the presentation, the final source code and benchmarks from the project, and some reference links.

This is a guide that I created based on my love for the game Deus Ex. It's such an open-ended game, that you really do have to play it several times to find everything. This column is mainly a list of strategies and hidden items that I've found over many years of playing Deus Ex, and not a walkthrough.

The following is a collection of the projects I completed during said class; they range from simple I/O programs to data structure manipulation programs. Documentation for these programs is also provided where available.

Aspects of Overpopulation 4-07-08
Revision Date: 2-21-09
Type: Academic
Views: 1195
Complete

This is about the only decent thing to come out of my final English course in college. The whole class was some bullshit about community service projects, but luckily, I was able to twist the noob professor's arm enough to let me do a public service announcement style project. The final fruits of this project was to be an (as of yet unfinished) video and the formal research paper presented here.

There's some proper formal dribble (Abstract and Executive Summary) at the beginning, but the rest of the paper is pure information. However, my cynical tone bleeds through into some areas, and some (less intelligent) people may disagree with any personal beliefs presented as fact on some points. Still, this is definitely a good overview to get one into the most important issue facing our world.

When I was upgrading my video card from a GeForce 2 Ultra to a Radeon 9600XT, I thought it'd be a good idea to document what I did for the novice upgrader. It covers the steps to making an educated buying decision and trouble-free installation with minimal technical knowledge.

I did this guide back in the day when people were still trying to overclock and tweak every little bit of performance out of their systems. I did a helluva lot of tests and benchmarks with every tweak I could muster for my Abit VT6X4; and when I came across a huge memory tweak, I had to write it up in this article. Later, video card tweaks were also added. Any user of a VIA Apollo Pro 133A chipset may find this guide useful.

In 2001, I began this short-lived experiment into ghetto computer modding. It's generally a rip-off of other ideas at the time, but some new stuff; most are of the case mod type.

Tony the Worm is a parody on a "children's story" I created for 12th grade English class. It's obviously a little too adult for children, but it does have a serious message. Besides that, everyone who reads it thinks it's absolutely hilarious. It was done completely with Paint Shop Pro 7.


Parallel Computing Projects for Academic Environments 12-13-07

Abandoned

This paper was done for a collaborative recommendation report in Technical Writing (yes, it was a required course), but it ended up being completely uncollaborative and all my own work. And as I was alone, two sections are missing that were originally planned. Nevertheless, I spent a solid month doing almost nothing but researching this paper. So, while it probably has some incorrect facts here and there, it is nothing but extensive.

The purpose of this report was to give students and instructors enough information to get started with parallel computing for hands-on projects.

This is a short research paper I did for my Advanced Biology class in high school. We were supposed to observe an organism for a while and then report on our findings with additional research. So I chose ant lions because they're totally awesome and easy to find but little-known. This paper also includes some original pictures taken by me; in a couple, I actually scanned an ant lion.

I did this term paper for my second college English class. It was supposed to be on a topic related to the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001. I chose to investigate the Muslim religion and find out why jihad is a call to terrorism. I researched for a month trying to write an as unbiased paper as possible. However, it is difficult to do so without any firsthand knowledge of Muslims or Islam.
