07.04.2005 – Thursday 7 April – Project Deliverables Demonstrated
- • Maz and I made our way to uni, incoherently tired, and found ourselves unable to find any parking other than the guest parking at Women’s college. After this brilliant start to the day, we attended our CSSE3004 demonstration – which was depressingly trivial. After spending so much time implementing, anticipating and checking everything I could think of, I was tested on four trivial operations – one of which failed, as it simply hadn’t occurred to me. No credit was given for any functionality, only detracted if any of the four tested functions didn’t work correctly. This is a really crap and uninspiring way of testing, but perhaps the only feasible one – and we were aware in advance it would be something like this.
After the presentation, Maz, Craig and I spent the afternoon working on our COMS4200 file transfer client and server applications.
- • Work was quiet, as was the train home, and I’ve run out of Pringles.
