20.08.2003 – Wednesday 20 August
- • I had a pleasant and much needed sleep in. After lunch, I read the first page of my “Programming in the Large” assignment specifications, and got waylaid for the next few hours. Admittedly, I was installing and configuring things for my assignment, but it was getting dark outside before I got around to reading pages two, three and four. I now have my computer set up to write, edit and compile java, and run a unit testing application, Roast. I also know how to utilise the standard input and output with java, and parse command line instructions, and how to calculate the standard deviation of a series of numbers. Perhaps not life enhancing skills, but hopefully enough to get good marks for this assignment. In finger related news, the abscess has now moved all the way around the front of the nail, along the fingertip, and is at the base of the nail nearly back where it started. The nail is coming away from the skin along the fingertip, and it’s not very pleasant – but it is less sore today.
- • I’ve now dined, showered, fed the animals, commented and uploaded my code to the uni server where it will be examined, successfully compiled and tested it there, and am about to clean my fangs and go to bed.
