  • What’s the Diff?

    I started out thinking my Master’s defense presentation was going to go more or less like my second seminar in March. Actually, I was worried it would be too similar. However, the more I revise these slides (58 in total at this point, although the last 12 are a sort of appendix), the more I […]

  • Give Me Slack

    The manuscript submission deadline for ICDSC 2008 was pushed back to May 12, which let me spend a couple days this week revising my paper instead of having to cram it all in on Monday. The second draft is quite a bit cleaner (flowcharts instead of verbal descriptions for the implementation, as well as more […]

  • Real Stereo Smart Cameras

    As one of the first steps in my Ph.D. work, I’m looking into building a real embedded Linux-based architecture for my distributed smart stereo cameras. The PC/104 form factor looks right. Many of the boards run Linux and have enough juice to do heavy image processing and run my calibration algorithm. I’ll need an IEEE-1394 […]

    More good financial news! I received a President’s Excellence scholarship today, for 3 terms starting in Fall 2008. That will be nice, since I won’t be eligible to GA in that first semester and Crystal will be back in school. I finally got around to finishing my presentation slides for CISP 2008 today. My paper […]

  • Potential to Kinetic, 1 for 2

    This morning, I opened a letter from the Ontario government telling me that I didn’t receive the OGS scholarship. Or should that be the OG Scholarship? Was Dr. Dre, Ph.D., on the review board? Anyway, well, that sucks. But financial news isn’t all bad today. My Google Summer of Code proposal to the Thousand Parsec […]

  • Push It

    Got around to pushing my Thousand Parsec overlay onto the TP project Git server, and writing the XML for Layman. For now, you have to add a URL to layman.cfg, but I’ve contacted a Gentoo developer who should be able to add it to the main list. If you test the overlay, let me know […]

    Well, the new mavrinac.com is up. Deep breath taken but completely unnecessary, plunge much smoother than expected. Careful planning followed by swift execution seems to work well for me. Looks like I have a couple extra days of breathing room for this ICDSC 2008 paper. My thesis draft won’t be through the grinder until the […]
