GSoC Introduction!

Hello everyone,
    I am a little late on my introduction, but this tardiness won't be reflected in any of my work - don't worry. My name is Kory Kirk, I just graduated with a Bachelors in Computer Science from Villanova University (outside of Philadelphia, PA) last weekend. In the fall I will be returning to Villanova to complete my Masters, I am in a 5-year BS/MS program. This summer I will be working with my mentor, Mike Perry, on adding some features to the TorButton Firefox extension. I am really excited to get back into programming Firefox extensions. The main features of Torbutton that I plan to work on are : tor:// & tors:// protocol handling, better respoofing, and precise cookie control, more details can be found here http://korykirk.com/GSoC/tor_app.html . I would highly appreciate any ideas or feedback you want to shoot my way.
   This is my first year participating in Google Summer of Code, and I am really happy to be with the Tor Project. I don't know what else goes in an introduction, so here are a few things about me that might be relevant: I am almost always on IRC - on my computer and sometimes on my phone (nick: koryk). I am from Dallas, TX, USA and will be spending my summer there, and will be in Central Standard Time (UTC - 6). I stay up late. I love reddit.

I am looking forward to contributing to the community.
