Rambly Update

Apparently I only post these days when I have a lot of work to do. There are so many awesome adventures that I need to write up and haven't yet. We've tasted so many wines, gone hiking in beautiful places, gone on a long drive chasing the sunset and ended up on an elk preserve where the water looked frozen in place, watched some great (and some terrible) movies, seen Opeth, hung out with lots of very awesome people, and generally been having a great time. I also got in to my first systems conference as first author (MASCOTS), so I'm going to London for a week in September, which I'm pretty stoked about. In the process, I acquired an Erdös number of 3.

Those are all the times I don't think to post, though. Too much happening, making the rare moments I'm alone too precious to spend at a computer. Right now, I'm in finals crunch and feeling lonely, so I post to LJ :P I'm taking a break to go visit mtbg Saturday, but otherwise I'm stuck at my apartment until next Thursday when this is all turned in and I get my 3 whole days of summer vacation (that I need to spend doing the camera ready copy of my conference paper and taking my *1 week, 3 question* security final. The first question is "a) Outline the steps to create a web site that is completely untraceable to you by an omnipotent, suspicious adversary, b) Collect money off this site while maintaining anonymity, and Extra Credit: Frame someone else convincingly for your site.") before starting at Google on Monday, where I'm there for a week before heading to San Diego for another conference (USENIX).

So, there's an update for all ya'll. I'm going to go back to making pretty pictures to toss onto this poster.
