Catholic. Software developer. Public transportation enthusiast.
I am currently a software developer at A Thinking Ape Entertainment Ltd. I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a B.Sc. degree in Computer Science with the Software Engineering Option. I primarily speak Python and C# these days, but in the past I've also done Objective-C, Java and PHP.
Outside of work, I'm a volunteer on the youth ministry team at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church, and also on the Canadian Ski Patrol team at Mount Seymour. I'm also an avid transit enthusiast/photographer.
There are only several hours left until this unexpected “vacation” would probably end :(. Back to school for the second time this year! They should have gotten the teachers to vote yesterday so that we would know whether or not there will be school tomorrow instead of finding out late tonight.
Anyway I pretty much screwed up these two weeks without school. EE, TOK presentation, etc.
Sometime today a person found the WordPress install file that I accidentally left on the server and reinstalled WordPress for me without my permission. Fortunately nothing valuable was lost, and as you can see, the blog is back up and running as before. To whoever it was, thank you for reminding me to remove my WordPress install file.
Although I don’t use Microsoft Antispyware, I am a big fan of MsgPlus and I have been using it since the late versions of MsgPlus 1. It’s great to see the MsgPlus community bunching up and convincing the Microsoft Antispyware team to think second thoughts about blocking MsgPlus. Patchou, the developer behind MsgPlus, has done a great job developing one of, if not the most popular addon to MSN Messenger. If you haven’t tried MsgPlus, I recommend you try it immediately: http://www.msgplus.net. It will definitely improve your MSN Messenger experience.
It has been a long time since I’ve posted something on this blog, and I think now would be a good time to post something about Camp Stillwood. The facilities there are quite good, and the food was good as well ;). At least we got chairs to sit on for formal/general sessions which lasted hours usually without breaks. Too bad it was raining the second day and my hiking session got cancelled. Anyway, overall I thought it was a fun experience. The last high-school/IB retreat ever :(. Back to the world of writing the EE 😉
I just found about Gmail aliases today (I know I know, some of you have known about this for years 😉 ) from this blog post. It seems like an interesting feature that Gmail should advertise on their front page since I’m sure many people would find this useful.
