Software Engineer and developer since 1994, knee deep in Java from 1998 till 2009, with experience in distributed systems, C/C++ (UNIX and Win32), CORBA, enterprise computing, software architecture, network protocols (layer 3 and up), systems administration, x86 Assembly, VB, FoxPro, and UML.

Working since 2010 with a defense contractor in the design and architecture of embedded systems using C/C++ and CORBA

I've pursued a MS in Computer Science (with focus on security in distributed systems). Now, I'm pursuing a MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering, and hopefully I would like to enter the fields of satellite communications and/or network protocols (layer 1 and 2). I might, at a later time pursue a Ph.D. in CS or CE (or a MS. in Computational Mathematics.)

comment How fast is 127.0.0.1?
I was about to post the same when I noticed you beat me to it. Indeed 'loopback address' should give a hint :)

comment How to watch logs in real time via Terminal?
Well, one thing is to keep a terminal open with tail -f scrolling down. It could get very expensive bandwith-wide though. It can get very expensive CPU-wise at the client if you are, say, scrolling the logs on a remote terminal being displayed through VNC or Remote Desktop. Other solutions involve sending log output to syslog (and that having it send remotely to a syslog server), or even sending batches of log lines (compressed and via UDP) to a monitoring client. The later might involve loss of some lines since it's UDP. It might be acceptable in some conditions, though.
