I'm a graduate student at MIT
majoring in Computer Science. I'm a member of
SIPB which is MIT's student computer group. We're responsible for
many services related to the student body, including support of
esoteric software, as well as wide-ranging services (from UseNet to
WWW). I am also a member of LSC,
which is a student group that deals with showing approximately four
movies a week for students at a very low price, and sometimes even for
You might wonder why I have such a weird name. Well, it's a
Hebrew name (yes, it's biblical, but I don't consider myself
religious). I'm Israeli, and I suppose that explains it enough (if it
doesn't, go see a shrink). I have, however, lived in many other
countries, so if you think I have a strange accent (not that you're
going to hear it on this page), attribute it to living in Nigeria,
England, Switzerland, and the U.S.
For those who want it: my pgp key
Stuff I work on Well, I 'support' stuff for SIPB, like
building silly programs in the sipb and outland lockers. I also try
and help support other lockers on Athena, but that's an on-and-off
thing. I love making all these reliable machines crash. I'm very good
at crashing servers. I play around with writing silly stuff sometimes,
but I won't reveal anything about that. I also work for DCNS and am a
student consultant for CSS.
If you want to see some stuff I've worked on, try my
6.170 project's homepage, or how about looking at
my 6.915 project? I'm working on NetBSD-Athena
which is a sipb project for getting Athena (our computing
working on NetBSD,
a cool BSD4.4-lite based operating system. I also try to keep
friends from my high school in contact with each other. I went to a
high school in London, and being an American high school in the middle
of London, its student body was from all around the
world. Unfortunately, when we graduated, we all went to different
corners of the world. So I did my best to at least find out people's
e-mail so that we may continue communicating.
This is how far I've gotten.
Links I often follow
Yes, this list should give you a hint as to the stuff I care for.
- I have my own machine on the Net, running NetBSD (of course). So
I tend to want to check up on it once in a while
- I love movie stuff, so I tend to browse
movie companies , as well as the Movie Database
often. When looking for what's on, I also search Movie Link and the MGM site.
Also, there is Cinemania Online
- is COOL!
my campaign is running right now. I'm also playing a character in
- And I sometimes care for
Boston Weather and sometimes just for
- Like all MIT Students, one has to check whether a
has been pulled off.
So, you now know about me. If you're close enough, why not head down
to the SIPB office and see what we're really like? We don't tend to
bite (except for Cat), and we like having people visiting. We're
usually friendly, and will do our best to answer any questions you
