Notable Alumni
« on: September 20, 2011, 01:07:16 am »
For those of you who are in or were in high school/university (the vast majority of us) are there any very well known or successful people who used to attend your school? Such examples of notable alumni's are actors, athletes, politicians, and CEO's. At my school our best known alumni are for their athletic achievements, they are:

*Carson Palmer: Who played on our football team, attended USC, won the Heisman Trophy (now on display in our athletic building), and is now the Cincinnati Bengals starting quarterback.
*Mark Sanchez: Not actually an alumni but played for our team in his frosh/soph years and now  is the starting quarterback for the New York Jets.
*Amy Rodriguez: A member of the US Women's National Soccer Team and a 2008 Beijing Olympics gold medal winner.

List of stuff I need to do before September:
1. Finish the Emulator of the Casio Prizm (in active development)
2. Finish the the SH3 asm IDE/assembler/linker program (in active development)
3. Create a partial Java virtual machine  for the Prizm (not started)
4. Create Axe for the Prizm with an Axe legacy mode (in planning phase)
5. Develop a large set of C and asm libraries for the Prizm (some progress)
6. Create an emulator of the 83+ for the Prizm (not started)
7. Create a well polished game that showcases the ability of the Casio Prizm (not started)

Vanessa Carlton went to my high school and actually lives ~20 minutes away from me. My friend who works at a deli type place even met her and talked with her a couple weeks ago.
