I got back my midterm mark for my databases exam. Impressive since I wrote it 48 hours ago. And it seems I did better than I imagined… I ended up with a 96% when the average was 72%. I don’t know how I did it, especially the last question, which I got full marks on even though I pulled the answer out of my ass, I didn’t even think the code would work and I was just looking for part marks. There were only 3 people out of 120 that got a better mark than me. I’m more than a little surprised.

I reworked my resume today in XML. I found a DTD for resumes and some XSL style sheets to transform it into a html, txt, and pdf document. I posted the html version on my website. I think it looks better than the Microsoft generated page.
