09.09.2003 – Tuesday 9 September
- • I slept in and missed the train (by about an hour). The rest of the day was rather uneventful. I went to my “Computer Organisation” practical and discovered I was supposed to know assembly language. It would be nice if uni taught things, I was under the miscomprehension that’s what they were for, but I’ve realised otherwise now. Seeing as I don’t know assembly language and wasn’t prepared to learn it without any resources and on the spot, I left and watched some third year mechanical and electrical engineering students having a robot-soccer match with LEGO robots.
- • I’ve been working on my “Information Technology Project” – project one. I’m making a VB sliding tile puzzle, or trying to. I’ve never used VB before, and as usual, instead of starting six weeks ago as I was supposed to, I’m doing it now that it’s due on Thursday. This, along with my “Programming in the Large” assignment due tomorrow evening and my “Intro to Information Systems” stuff due on Tuesday – which is a group affair, so I can’t let my group down and have to do that too, should keep me busy. Oh, and there’s upcoming mid-semester exams too.
