There is an unfortunate thing about my course schedule this term. my late classes get in the way of all the great talks that have and are going on this term. Last week I missed Jim Gray talk about the terra server and the real-time system that joins up telescopes to creates in effect one large telescope which can quickly combine all the data to get one image. There was one a while back given by a Stanford professor about distributed operating systems that I missed.

Next week there’s a talk given by Microsoft about developing games in C#. And I can actually make it to the talk. I’m looking forward to it. there’s another Microsoft talk tomorrow, don’t know what it’s about but I’ll be trying to make it.
