Two Project Sites
I have created a project site for my Computer Science class, Senior Projects. The URL is seniorproject.korykirk.com. I also made a website for my newly started Wireless Research on a National Science Foundation grant. The URL is adhoc.korykirk.com. These two sites will be updated more than this site. Also the final edition of Novamail is avaliable at www.whileyouwereafk.com. Later.
Novamail Firefox Extension
Go over to www.whileyouwereafk.com and check out the Firefox extension I am developing for my software engineering class. It is in beta release right now. My hope is to be able to get it onto every Villanova University computer running the Firefox browser.
I have not updated this site as much as I have hoped to. I have finished my research class, and my final research paper can be found here in Microsoft Word format. I do not know if I will be returning to that research topic or not, it depends if I get accepted into the undergraduate research program in the spring. I feel like it was a good introduction on how to do research, and I think I did an acceptable job. It was not as thorough as I would have liked it to be, but then again it was my first major research project(if you call that major).
Well it is a new semester at Villanova University, the computer science classes I am taking this semester are Artificial Intelligence, Software Engineering, and Ethics in Computing. I hope to be updating this site more often!
New Site Layout
This is my new website layout. I got tired of the old one, and I wanted something much more simplistic. The goal of this website is to have an outlet to share my projects with the world. When I say projects I mean different research and applications that I have been working on for school projects and for personal enjoyment. I will try to update the site regularly with details and updates about various projects. So take a look around, and e-mail me if you have any comments or feedback.
I am hoping to recreate this site in Ruby on Rails in order to have easy blogging and updates. But that depends on if I feel like I need more functionality. Thanks for stopping by.
Not so broken ipod
My Ipod broke two months ago. I was listening to it in my car one day and it stopped. When I tried to turn it back on I came across a screen that I soon came to dread, the ipod sad face. I was very concerned, because my Ipod was only a little over a year old, so I drove directly to the nearest apple store, and right when I was consulting an "apple genius" my Ipod magically worked again, but not for long. My Ipod would give me the sad face, I would reset it, and I would get more smiley faces, until eventually it started up and work for a little while then more sad faces.
I was very frustrated with this sad face cycle, and was planning on buying a new Ipod. Because it came to a point where I couldnít even get it to work, maybe for every 50 sad faces I got 3 songs in, and thatís just not efficient. I figured I had nothing else to lose in this situation, so I decided to pull out the screw drivers and crack open my Ipod. I used a guide that I found on google about how to replace an Ipod hard drive. But instead of replacing my hard drive, I just put it back together. And when I put it back together, it worked again. And it has been working perfectly since then.
Most wired school!
I am proud to say that Villanova University, the university which I attend has been ranked as the #1 Wired School in the nation according to the most recent PC magazine. I am really not sure what that entails, however it is impressive considering the competition. MIT is ranked second. I am also proud because I work for Villanovaís Techzone, the brutal front line of technical support for the most wired school in the nation.
On another note; I updated the style of the site a little bit more and added a few things here and there. I have heard some feedback that some browsers are seeing some awkward spacing on my site, so I am working on that.
I have spent the last few hours totally redesigning my website. The content is mostly the same; I did significantly update SpaceGame and SpaceGameís source code. I just like the look and feel of the new site a lot better. It feels cleaner and more professional. I appreciate everyone who has visited my site, and I encourage you to come back and see what is going on. I plan on doing many new things, once I get this page written in Ruby on Rails. I am probably going to start a Programmerís blog with tags and all that jazz. Go play SpaceGame, see if you can beat it. And if you find any bugs in any of my games or have any suggestions for the site, please let me know.
