# Work and Holidays

##### Posted June 26th, 2015 by Jason N

Well, apparently I haven’t blogged in ages, but there’s no time to blog like the present.

Today is the last day of term 2, meaning that I get two weeks of holidays in which I can do as I please. In other words I get two weeks to prepare for term 3, during which I’ll probably be expected to re-read English texts, revise Specialist Maths and look at practice exams. How much of that will actually get done is something that will only be determined two weeks from now.

In other news, I was recently signed on as a programmer doing casual work for the University of Melbourne. I’ll be working on Edgy, which is a block-based programming environment tailored to the graph datatype used in VCE Algorithmics. It’s sure to be a great experience, and my JavaScript skills will definitely get a work out.

I’m looking forward to term 3, although it’s probably going to be the busiest one of all. I should start thinking of Battle of the Bands too; hopefully it’ll be as much fun as I think it’s going to be.

That’s all for now. More blogging to come later.

# Introducing Rust-WebSocket

##### Posted January 30th, 2015 by Jason N

Rust-WebSocket is a project of mine, written in Rust which provides WebSocket functionality for other projects to use.

It basically provides a way to implement a server and client using the WebSocket protocol – allowing real-time communication between a server and a client. The browser you use probably supports WebSocket, and many games and chat applications use it to allow you to get updated data without having to refresh the page.

I’ll talk a bit more about how this works in later posts.

You can check out the library, maybe fork it, make changes and submit a pull request, from here on GitHub.

# Holidays

##### Posted June 30th, 2014 by Jason N

So end-of-term holidays started a little while ago, which means two weeks free from the hassles of school assignments and SACs. Speaking of SACs, I've learned that I got 100% for the second skills test (i.e. SAC 4) for Maths Methods... I could've gotten 100% on SAC 3 as well, but for some reason I decided to write $\genfrac{}{}{0.1ex}{}{8\pi }{9}$ instead of $\genfrac{}{}{0.1ex}{}{8}{9\pi }$. Oh well, 99% will have to do.

This holidays I plan to actually put some music stuff on the music page (you know, in place of the current ‘no content’ page)… We’ll see how that actually pans out soon.

Other stuff I’m planning to do is write more programs, because I haven’t really done any real programming for quite some time. If I write anything interesting, I’ll put it up here.

That’s all for now.
