(or, at least a weak attempt at a home page. I did succumb some time ago to the insistence that I must have a home page. However, I do not seem to be able to find time to first learn and then do what needs to be done to make it an impressive homepage.)

Actually, I do have another picture, taken in a museum in Cyprus in June, 1995 by Greg Egan, professor at Monash University, ...and one at HPCA-12 in Austin, February, 2006.
Also, Haydn's interpretation of me at a UT Halloween, 2003 costume party.

FOR STUDENTS WISHING TO TAKE ECE 460N THIS FALL SEMESTER, PLEASE READ:
1. If you wish to take 460N this fall, please come to the first lecture, Monday, September 22, in ECJ 1.202, at 5pm.
2. I have posted below the link to the course webpage for the course. Please read the Course Descriptor and the Syllabus.
3. If you are registered for the section with unique id 17825, see if you are able to attend any of the other three discussion sections.
4. If you have any questions that can not wait until next Monday, please send me email.
I look forward to seeing you next Monday. Enjoy the last week of the summer break.

Note: I have recently received a number of requests from new graduate students wishing to TA EE460N in Fall, 2022. After looking at their backgrounds, it is clear they should take EE460N in Fall, 2022. In fact, we have found that very few students have had a course in computer architecture equivalent to EE460N before they arrive, and should plan on taking EE460N their first semester here if they plan to do serious work in computer architecture or embedded systems. I have been told that EE460N should also be in the course of study for software students and integrated circuits students, but I will leave that decision to your research advisor.
If you are planning on taking EE460N/382N.1 in fall, 2022, and find yourself unable to register, please come to the first class. My experience suggests that although the room may be full on day one, enough will drop when they find out the workload in the course, so if you are sincerely interested, there should be plenty of seats in the room.
Also, if you do take 460N/382N.1 in Fall, 2022, and do particularly well, I may end up offering you a TA position to TA the course in the Spring.
