  1. I was just randomly searching the web and saw that you knew about the Rebelution. That’s awesome! :) I live here in Southern CA as well… computer science major at La Sierra University (nothing like USC… but sockets bring back some unlovely memories of network programming). I’m a big USC football fan too. ;) Do you know much about the grad programs there for computer science?
