A few months ago I’ve completed my MS degree at Georgia Tech through OMS CS. It was easily the most challenging and fun school I’ve been though so far. If you enjoy studying and are interested in a Computer Science degree, I definitely recommend it, with the only caveat that it takes quite a bit of time and effort.

One of the best parts of taking school later on is that I got to be the responsible student I’ve always tried to be during university years. Now I know at least what’s it like to be 90% prepared :)

Since last year, I’ve been enrolled in the Georgia Tech’s OMS CS program and I’m really happy with how it goes: the quality of the classes is great and the community as well — it’s just an awesome learning experience, on par with Georgia Tech’s high rankings in university charts.

I definitely recommend the program to those who would like to get a Master’s Degree in Computer Science but lack the time to do an on-campus program. …

This is an article I wrote back in 1999, for the Hugi Diskmag and I am reposting it here for archival.

At that time, the Internet was not widely available in Romania, and so, for a brief period, diskmags were the source of cool & fresh information.


I am writing this article in response to Chris Dragan’s article who wrote his in response to Rawhed’s one who… Wow, this 16 bits must surely have something special!

Anyway, I read those articles and I thought that I might try a different approach, and since I’ve just got into assembly (I mean…

I have a laptop with an Nvidia GeForce 520M video card and, after getting a Dell U2515H monitor, I could not make it run at 2560x1440 over HDMI — the maximum resolution was capped at 2048x1152.

Apparently, my laptop HDMI output is version 1.3 (cable is 2.0), short of the 1.4 needed for 2560x1440.

Here is the solution I found eventually:


These steps worked on Windows 10, but they probably work on earlier versions too.

  1. From the NVidia Control Panel, go to Display / Change resolution, and click Customize
  2. Check Enable resolutions not exposed by the display, and then click…
