Fault Tolerance Systems

Back in the Master days we (me and my roommates) took a course related to Scalable Distributed Systems. It's final project was on Fault Tolerance scheme on distributed computers connected together. We had to deliver something that simulated that scheme (apart from the documentation and theories). Since we had implemented it in Java and in order for everybody to work asynchronously, we had it subversioned at Google Code using the Eclipse SVN.
Lately I learned that Google is shutting down Google Code, so I downloaded the code using Download SVN tool which I found pretty cool. I think there are plenty of code for fault tolerance system out there but if you want to take a look the code is still available here.

First Post (a.k.a Hello World)

Me as Guybrush
printf("Hello World!");

The idea for this Blog occurred to me when my classmates, with which I was doing a programming project, asked me if it was possible to speed up the reading/creating of some file.
- "I can make a script to do that!", was my response.
Soon, one script over the other, they gave me the nickname of The Script Guy (which I like to be honest). Since scripts and programming are not the only things I like, I thought why not gathering them all together in a this digital drawer called Blog, where everything can fit! Its is a strange combination but I love it!
