ABOUT ME [pic]
I am Rui (Ray) Zhou, and somehow you are looking at my page. Regardless what you are trying to do, you are probably doing it right.
Currently I am a first-year Master Student in the Computer Science Department of Brown University. This is somehow shocking to me considering I was born in a quite normal family from a little town of China. My family speaks absolutely no English, and I intially learned English from some great Chinese people who never went to any English speaking countries. Well, somehow I am in the States now, alive and kicking happily.
I have lots of random experinece in many different sub-fields of computer science. But I am currently trying to concentrate on Networking and Systems. This does not mean I can re-install your computers operating system for you. In fact installing Windows is so hard that it requires a PHD degree as well as a banana, so try to reach people who has the true power if installing Windows is what you need.
I want to do a PHD after finishing my Master's Degree. Because only knowledge preseves, excpet for the weight I gained from eating a little bit too much last night.
