Last Friday I handed in what was hopefully the last piece of assessment that I will ever have to do for university. It’s not to say that I wouldnt like to go back next year and look at doing a Masters or a PhD, but I feel after 5 years at university it’s about time to move on and start my career. Tomorrow I will be moving back to my home town, where I will be staying with my parents while searching for that elusive first computer science job. I have already had a few places that have been interested, but none of them have worked out for some reason or another, the main one being that I was unable to start until this week, so hopefully now it shouldnt take too long to find one.
So what does this mean for my MPLS project with FreeBSD? Basically I will not have internet for a while, at least until I can get a connection setup at my parents house, but once this is done I will continue to work on MPLS. At this stage I am going to start looking at how to implement the routing table. I was thinking of using a hash map of some form, due to the fact that the MPLS labels means that this will probably be the most efficient way of storing them. Given that I will have a lot of free time on my hands now I will hopefully be able to dedicate a lot more time to this than I have this past year.
