Who I Be
I'm a graduate of Cornell
program. I am also a graduate of Cornell's
Master of Engineering program in Computer Science.
This picture was taken spring of '95. I really should get a more recent picture.
Sheeta (besides being one of the main characters of
Laputa) is the name of my computer. She's
grown over the years and is currently a Pentium IV 2GHz with 1 gig of memory and an absurdly big harddrive.
Her old incarnation is now Fio (P3 500 with 256 megs of
memory and a big harddrive.)
Her old, old incarnation is the dual-boot Birdy/Tsutomu (Pentium 233 with 64 megs of memory and a not so big harddrive.)
On the other side, I've got a G5 named Sharon. Dual 2 gHz, 1 gig of RAM and yet another absurdly big harddrive.
For my on-the-go computing, I'm using a Macbook Pro named Alphonse. 2.16 GHz Intel Core Duo with 1 gig of memory.
And last but not least there is a Compaq Presario 1700 laptop named Asuka. 1 GHz Pentium III, 256 megs of memory and a decent sized harddrive. That's Asuka as in the MPL-96 Asuka. There's a theme here!
My interests include:
- Anything remotely related to computers.
- Piano (10 years)
- Japanese Animation and Manga
- Baseball (Go Phillies!)
- Roller Blading and Hockey (Go Flyers!)
These are the people in my life that I'd like to thank for various
- The most important people in my life are my parents. My parents
are typical Chinese parents and growing up, that got on my nerves.
But sometime during college, I finally realized how lucky I was to
have parents as devoted as them. Thanks, Mommy and Daddy.

Dragonware was my 9th grade computer software company.
Unfortunately, due to unavoidable factors like college and an actual
software company named Dragon something or other, Dragonware no longer
exists. But hey, it's fun to have your own company when you are in
9th grade and I think that logo looks really cool.
The great achievements of Dragonware are:
- Boomerang v2.01
EGA/VGA 2 player action game
Now released into the public domain.

In my glorious college days, I was treasurer, secretary, and audio-visual
tech guy for the
Cornell Japanese Animation Society (CJAS)
(not all at the same time).
But soon after I graduated, I gained the ignominious title of "Repoman."
But I got paid off so I'm no longer the "Repoman."
Now I am a member of the few, the proud, the graduated, the

List of anime I own.

Anime I want to sell off.
I was never a big PC gamer especially after the big FPS craze hit.
In my eternal laziness, I went a long before I got a 3d accelerator for my
computer. Instead, I'm more of a console fan.
I got started on the 32-bit home console scene a bit late.
I had a Genesis and Mega Drive throughout high school but
I didn't progress to a Playstation until after college.
Strictly speaking, the Playstation is my sister's as I gave
it to her as a present. But since she was at college, it
resided at my apartment. I've got a Japanese PSOne now though so she has hers back.
I also have 3 Dreamcasts (long story). I'll probably get a PS2
sooner or later.
And going portable, I've got a Neo Geo Pocket Color (Ocean Blue) and will get a
GameBoy Advance sooner or later.
My favorite games in no particular order:
- Bust a Move
- Ecco the Dolphin (DC Version)
- Star Ocean: The Second Story
- Suikoden 2
- Wild Arms
- Last Blade 2
- Rival Schools 2
- Soul Calibur
- Street Fighter Alpha 3
- Virtual On: Oratorio Tangram
- SNK vs Capcom Card Clash (Capcom Version)
- Dance Dance Revolution
- Samba de Amigo
- Starcraft: Brood Wars
List of games I own.
It's like a big LEGO set...
As mentioned above, I like anything remotely related to computers.
A side effect of this is my almost constant presence on MUCKs (Multi
User Construction Kit). MUCKs attract me because besides allowing
role playing, they also allow building and programming. So one can
create worlds to play in (and probably waste just a little too much
time in while one should be studying for finals, but I digress).
The muck I currently frequent and help run is
ranma.muck.com 1212. You can find me online there as
Quoted ones aren't mine.
The term "alpha software" is secret code for, "It doesn't work!"
I believe I'm young as long as I think of snow as something that is fun.
