Mike and Chris at OFSAA
Yeah I’ve been slacking. There hasn’t been that much to talk about. I’m taking two summer courses; one at Ottawa U and one at Carleton U. Woohoo for midterms. Last weekend was Stroll For liver and that was pretty fun. I even got to play some volleyball and publicly shamed myself with my “stellar” overhand serves.… Read the rest

HHHHHHHEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLPPPPPPPPPPPP! I’m in an Ottawa U computer lab and it sucks. Who the hell books a tutorial at 8:00  am????? I wanna have a nice chat with the scheduling office, and explain how most of us prefer to sleep in (comp sci students ARE nocturnal after all).… Read the rest

People who know me might be aware that my alias is Mallorick79. The thing with mysterious names is they hold many secrets. Sorry to disappoint, as far as I know, ‘Mallorick’ has none. It’s just a cool name, simple as that, and I “think” I invented that name – at the time of creation, there was only 1 google entry, and there is still less than a page of results, half belonging to me.… Read the rest
Finally a real update to the site. First of all, lets have some tribute to the wonderdrug! Hooray for Bawls. So, life has been busy with projects and tests so the blog has been bleeding. However, exams aren’t over yet and funtime is still limited.… Read the rest

As some may know, I am a hardware enthusiast. Some might also know that my pc is historically named xiO. I saw an offer on Ebay for an Athlon64 FX-55, one of AMD’s VERY high-end CPUs, around December 14th and this set in motion a system upgrade.… Read the rest

CUTC 2007 rocked my socks! Man what a weekend it was. I was naive – I would have ever thought that a technology conference would be so fun! The keynote speakers were quite good, and I even discovered several companies that offer very tempting senior co-op placements.… Read the rest

To all my loyal readers, and friends whom I have forced the Planet Jon URL upon via MSN, Merry Christmas! What I want to know is, where the heck is the snow? I have NEVER had a green Christmas in Ottawa before.… Read the rest
Christmas 2006
May 1st, 2006: Fresh out of year 2, I arrived at the doorstep of NavCanada; tired, naive, and wondering how long it would be before I was shown the door. It was my first day of co-op and I was quite aprehensive.… Read the rest
The last page of a chapter
Working with DHTML sucks; and that’s a fact of life. The older the browser, the worst it is because of different DOM implementations. I was trying to set this thing up where you can draw a box outline over an image, and send the coordinates to a PHP program through a form.… Read the rest

You guys will never guess what I did with my weekend >.> You see, I have this awesome friend named Marion who lives in Montreal. As she lives kinda far away, hanging out is somewhat difficult. To make a short story shorter, I had some free time on my hands this weekend and seized the opportunity.… Read the rest
A trip to Montreal
And so I came home from work tonight to the shouts of delight. It seems that Queens University has become interested in my brothers’ athletic talents and would like them to attend Queens. For those who don’t know, my brothers are quite the enthusiasts when it comes to track and field.… Read the rest
