Started working on my first real-time assignment today. It seems like it’s going to be a lot of work… and it’s due next friday, so there’s not a lot of time to procrastinate it. We have to write some software that will boot a bare machine, and the control/talk to two devices on serial ports. One device is the track, the second is a terminal window. at the same time there has to be a clock running on the screen and a command line for input to the system. It’s going to be tricky for sure.

I picked up the rest of my books.. I think. I only needed to buy 2 texts this term.

I had my first french oral lab today… not what I was expecting. We just sit around and chat for an hour.

Anyway off to class.
