Information Systems Independent Study [Jan. 16th, 2007|09:11 pm]
[Tags|]

Originally published at Logical Eccentricity News. Please leave any comments there.

So, as a part of the six credits I am taking this semester, one of them is for an Independent Study in Information Systems. My project for this class is going to be to create a new portfolio tracker for the IAG website. I want to create a program that will allow us to track all the trades made, so we can have a page that shows the most recent trades made. This along with a couple of other features that I haven’t fulled worked out yet. But, as a part of this class, I’m going to be blogging about my progress here; I’ll give this project its own category to make it easy. So, along with the start of this, I also put in a request with Stern IT to get a MySQL account, all the trades and the portfolios will be tracked in a database. So that is a quick update on what I’ve done so far.

So I was going to write about the iPhone from Apple, but then everyone is talking about that. So why add to that? I guess this will be a boring post about what I’ve been doing the last few days… I’ve been working on studying for the GMATs all over again; taking them this Saturday. Beyond that, I’ve been working on one of my new year resolutions, the hardest one of them I think. I’m talking about making money using the internet. For the last two weeks, I’ve been using a site called Rent-A-Coder. Basically this site lets me bid on projects that people post up that they want done. So, using my knowledge of the internet, PHP, MySQL, and such I’ve been trying to win some projects and make some money.

I guess that’s all for now… I’ll post more when there’s something interesting to post…

Broadway Play: The Lion King [Jan. 7th, 2007|10:37 pm]
[Tags|, , , , ]

Originally published at Logical Eccentricity News. Please leave any comments there.

I watched The Lion King the other night on Broadway; it was a spectacular show. My brother got us front row center seats and they were amazing. The show itself was very good. I loved how the actors came off stage at times, at the start of the show, there was a procession of animals that came down through the orchestra section. The costumes were very well put together, made it very easy to imagine there were actual animals and not people. Overall, I enjoyed the show; not sure where it ranks in the shows that I’ve seen, but its up there in the top 5.

And here is an updated list of the Broadway shows I’ve seen (the ones that I remember):

  1. The King and I - Back in middle school
  2. Le Miserable - High School French class
  3. Man of La Mancha - part of orientation week at Stern
  4. Rent - Freshman year as a part of Stern Scholars
  5. Fiddler on the Roof - Stern Summit on Global Business
  6. Monthy Python’s Spamalot
  7. Wicked x2
  8. Sweeney Todd
  9. Jersey Boys
  10. One Man Star Wars
  11. The Lion King

It looks like Wordpress has been upgraded to version 2.0.6. Its a recommended update with an important security fix. Its also got the following changes: HTML quicktags now work in Safari browser, comments are filtered to prevent them from messing up your blog layout, and Compatibility with PHP/FastCGI setups. After this release we should see 2.1 soon. But don’t wait till then, upgrade now!

Thursday Thirteen: Thirteen places I’d like to Visit [Jan. 4th, 2007|08:28 pm]
[Tags|, , , ]

Thirteen Places I’d like to visit

  1. California - I was there for a day, and didn’t get a chance to see anything. It would be great if I could go visit west coast since I’ve lived all my life on the East coast.
  2. Alaska - seems like a cool (haha) place to go and check out
  3. Europe - I’ve always wanted to backpack around somewhere, and Europe seems like the perfect place. Get a Eurorail pass and go around the whole continent.
  4. Paris - I know I already said Europe, but I definatly want to visit Paris, get a chance to take in all the sights, and see the wonderful city
  5. Antarctica - I recently watched Happy Feet :-) and it would be awesome to see penguins up close
  6. India - I was born there, but I’ve never seen all the “good” places there. I only saw the Taj Mahal the last time I was there, and I know I’m missing out on a lot of things, so I would love to go and see the rest of the country
  7. England - I want to see Stonehenge
  8. Scotland - Just because of Highlander and Braveheart
  9. Hawaii - ah.. no particular reason
  10. Ireland - again no particular reason
  11. China - the biggest country… should check it out sometime…
  12. Russia - only because they defaulted on their local currency debt…
  13. Japan - Tokyo seems like an amazing city

Resolutions for 2007 [Jan. 2nd, 2007|05:44 pm]
[Tags|, , , , , ]

Originally published at Logical Eccentricity News. Please leave any comments there.

I decided that I should write down my resolutions for this year so I don’t forget them, and I can hold myself to them later on. So here they are in no particular order:

  1. Go to the gym three days a week
    • Maintain my weight at around 160 to 170, I’ve been at this weight since the end of HS, and want to stay around it
    • Keep my cholesterol in check
  2. Read for fun
  3. Write more on this blog… keep posting during the school year
  4. Use the Internet to make money - not sure how I’m going to do this, but I want to make money off the internet

That’s all I can think of right now… I might post more if I think of something to add

2006… A Look Back [Jan. 1st, 2007|07:13 pm]
[Tags|, , , ]

Originally published at Logical Eccentricity News. Please leave any comments there.

2006 was an interesting year; so many things happened its hard to sum it all up. To start with my resolutions for the year. I don’t think I wrote any of them down, or if I did, I can’t find them. This means that I achieved all of my resolutions during the year. :-) I’ll write down my resolutions for 2007 once I’ve finalized them.

So, It looks like I traveled a lot during 2006. In January, I went to Nashville to visit my brother’s (at that point future) in-laws. I was there for just the weekend, so a pretty rushed trip all in all. Fly in, hang out for the weekend, and fly back out. Then March for Spring break I went halfway around the world to Korea for the ISP trip. I can’t believe how much fun I had in a one short week. I was there as part of a school trip, but the actual school stuff only lasted for a day or so, and we had the rest of the week to explore the “culture” of Korea. April, May and June were pretty quite in terms of travel. But then July more than made up for it. India for a two weeks, and then Nashville for another short weekend for a reception. Then the last trip was a short little trip out to California to interview with Google. I think this has been the most that I’ve traveled (flying-wise) in one year. A lot of fun overall though.

Beyond the traveling, 2006 was a little like a roller coaster ride; with a lot of ups and downs. Nothing to get into too much detail right now, but it was a fun year overall. I learned a lot in school (had my three favorite classes at NYU during 2006), and learned a lot personally. 2007 is going to be a great year, and I’m looking forward to it.
