The end of another week. whew.
We got new computers in the realtime lab yesterday, upgraded from pentium 1s to IIs and IIIs. That seems to have fixed some problems we were having with the network cards and now the boot time is much shorter. yeah for us.
I have to get a couple of books on C and the GNU tool chain. It’s getting very annoying that there are so many things I don’t know about how things work. I’m trying to get dynamic memory allocation set up in in my operating system. But I just have no idea where to start with it. the fact that everything is being cross-compiled and linked doesn’t make things any easier. So yeah, I’m a forth year CS student and I only learned about linker scripts yesterday. That’s part of the reason why I want to drop Graphics from my schedule next term.
Yesterday I got an email anouncing that they are going to be giving another class of AI next term. I haven’t checked the time slot yet but I’m hopeful that I’ll be able to move around my schedule to not start at 8:30 on Tuesday and Thursday.
I wish I could take it easy tonight.
