Summer, Work, Conferences and Connections

Ok, havn’t made any updates for awhile. I’ve been working at RPI over the summer. DC/LA was really cool. Mel Gibson was there and I made big connections to the company that makes MediaShout.(PowerPoint like software for churches.) In fact they offered me a co-op which is really cool because there programmers are mostly RPI graduates and the programming devision is based in the Albany area. Then Soul Fest was really cool too. I was able to get on stage with Jars of Clay, 6 Pence None the Richer and Five Iron Frenzy. I met lots of cool people, heard lots of cool music and had a lot of fun. My family is going to Disney next week which is fun, but it is kind of a let down that it turns out that the Lathrops are going down this week and we will miss them by a few days. It would have been really cool to be able to hang out with Niffer and Aimee down there some or at least to have bumped in to them once or twice. Then it is back to school.

On another note, I found two really cool features of AIM. First, I found one a lot of people know about, you can forward messages to your cellphone when you are off AIM by going to www.aim.com/wireless/. I signed up my cellphone account under ajh16cp. If you need to get ahold of me, you can IM me there if I’m not on. The other is AIM Security. If you get a free E-mail ID Certificate from www.thawte.com, then you can encrypt IMs and digitally sign them. It is really cool and gets the lovely lock icon next to your name. (Once you have the certificate you can use the Security options tab to import the certificate.)
