A Blog Less Ordinary

The blog of Dave Ingram

Masters thesis

Well, the initial individual project allocations have been published, and it looks like I’ve definitely had my project confirmed. As far as I know, it was going to happen anyway, but it’s nice to have official confirmation now, so I can start working on it.

What is my project? Well, it was my own proposal, and the title is Towards a Database Filesystem, which may give you a clue. The aim of this project is to build a database filesystem that can store various elements of metadata about a file, allowing you to categorise and organise files differently depending on how you’re feeling or how you want to find your data.

I do have big overarching plans for this system, but I don’t think I’ll be able to implement all of them in the limited time we have been given. More on these later.

I think that, to make this fit into the time available, it will have to have the following features:

I will be keeping this blog updated as I work on the project, partly for my own reference, but also for anyone who might find this interesting.
