Welcome to my blog!  I’m going to use it to document my college adventures — computer-related or otherwise — and all the laughs that I will have over the months and years to come.  Hope you enjoy!

Some definitions (source: Wikipedia):

sudo is a program for Unix-like computer operating systems that allows users to run programs with the security priveleges of another user (normally the superuser, or root).  Its name is a concatenation of the “su” command (which grants the user a shell of another user, normally the superuser) and “do”, or take action.

pseudocode is a compact and informal high-level description of the operating principle of a computer program or other algorithm. It uses the structural conventions of a programming language, but is intended for human reading rather than machine reading. Pseudocode typically omits details that are not essential for human understanding of the algorithm. The purpose of using pseudocode is that it is easier for persons to understand than conventional programming language code, and that it is an efficient and environment-independent description of the key principles of an algorithm. It is commonly used in planning of computer program development, for sketching out the structure of the program before the actual coding takes place. (see Python (?) – that’s next on the programming-language bucket list)
