My understanding is that the way PCI-compliant CC transactions happen now in China is that the foreign company interested in selling you stuff has a VPN endpoint inside the Great Firewall that their servers use to ship CC info across the firewall to servers outside of the firewall. If that's not correct, please let me know how this actually works.I've heard that in the past year or so, the government is dropping more and more encrypted traffic and that VPNs of this nature can't be relied…See More

"Hello everyone. I've been hacking Perl since the 90s. I use it mostly for Japanese text processing and flat file data manipulation. I have about an hour of Ruby under my belt and got the impression that I loved Perl more."

On the "professional development" side, I'm interested in spending time understanding Machine Learning and have taken a strong interest lately in learning about starting/running businesses, especially tech businesses.
On the fun side, I love almost anything that's competitive and I tend to get into competitive endeavors quite seriously: sports, German-style board games, poker, computer games.
I was born in Kentucky and lived there until late August 2008 when I moved to Hawaii. I've been doing independent consulting off and on since about 2000 and received my MS in CS from the University of Kentucky in 2007 where I worked on color correction in projector-camera systems and generally wrote a lot of substrate code for other programmers to use to build networked projector-camera systems, surveillance systems, stereo vision systems, high-dynamic range image capturing, etc.

Hi Nate, Thanks for responding. Our company works with men and women who are transitioning out of the prison system and integrating back to civilian life. One of the areas our clients need help with is finding a job. We have designed a vocational assessment that we use with our clients to help them determine what their interests and skills are to eventually coach them into an appropriate career path. The assessment is currently a pen and paper instrument that has to be scored manually so we want to convert to an online version. We want the online version to be able to score and translate the results into a computerized version. We also want the online version to match the clients' interests to job matches and the last phase would be for the system to create a narrative that a job counselor could use to coach our clients into appropriate vocational choices. I am thinking I would need to work with a programmer who can help us with the online conversion. Am I on track with my thinking or do I need to go in a different direction?
Hi Nate, I don't know of any current positions for software development in Berkeley's Astronomy department, but I do have some colleagues in Berkeley's computational neuroscience, which occasionally hire scientific (Python) programmers.
