Presenting Chord at TONIC

Ketan's asked me to present Chord this Friday when TONIC will be held at UNC. The Chord project was developed by Ion Stoica, et al. and is described in Chord: A Scalable Peer-to-peer Lookup Protocol for Internet Applications. (Note that this version of the paper is different from the one listed in CiteSeer and on the TONIC home page--I like this version better.)

Since I need to make a few PowerPoint slides to describe Chord, I just downloaded OpenOffice. Unfortunately, OpenOffice is pretty large and the new file server hard disk (WD1200JB) I ordered has not arrived yet, so I had to install OpenOffice on Orlando instead of Binibik. Since the WD1200JB will actually end up being larger than my current 80GB backup drive, sometime in the future I will have to purchase a new backup drive around 320GB in size. If you're interested in hard disk information, visit They have a WD1200JB review, which places this drive on the leaderboard for a 7200RPM IDE drive.

I guess you're making money just to buy more HD space for your computing needs. :-) Who's reading your journal anyway?

For the most part the only people reading my journal are the professors I work with and my colleagues. But it also lets me keep a research log of everything I do, which is important.

And the money I do make does go towards my computing needs, but that's after it goes towards things like food, and a place to live :P
