Went to the grocery store today to pickup furniture cleaner for the new desk. It's almost built. The drawer is the difficult part.



Woke up late ~@10:00am. Cleaned the desk.



Spent 2-3-4 hours working on a Flash project.



Talk to Tom Deiulis(sp) today. Been a while. Just wanted to know something about splitting up a photo for HTML.



Went over to ECY place and we went to Sam's place to get his new, 'Fusion' sound system for his car.



Came back to my place and he helped me finish the drawer on the desk.



Took some photos of his new system.



Alex told me about Mark 'Web' Wicken's blog. Wow he's an amazing photographer. Sounds like he's gone back to school as well.



Taxes tomorrow.

Spent the day working on the, 'new' desk.



Had diner with ECY. We went to a new 'hamburger' place. ~$4.85. Neither of us had eaten diner 'til after 9:00pm.

Tuesday, April 27, 2004

Spent the day going between Annie's website and building my 'new' desk.



Bought the PC game, "FarCry" and the, "QuickTax" program from FutureShop.



Picked up ECY from school @~4:30pm. He phoned just as I left the house in the car. Went to RenoDepot [to pick up screws for the desk] and Costco.



ECY drove over on the scooter ~@9:30pm.



Took pictures of ECY doing some late night BMXing. Went back to his place ~@11:03pm and did some quick PhotoShop touchups.

Go up late ~10:30am. Wait for ECY's friend Max to phone. Went to School to help him and his friend with their jewelry business. They would spend the whole day. I left ~@1:30pm and went home relaxed a bit and then went to visit PetiteP.

Go their just in time to help with the wood. They were putting it outside. His friend Claudel there. We spent ~1.5 hours outside doing this then went in and played with his race car set. It's been awhile since I've even seen one of these. I didn't think kids played with things like this anymore. Interesting 'retro' feeling.



Watched DVD, 'Phone Booth'. Interesting.

Wednesday, April 21, 2004

Finish the last assignment for CSC116 - Lab #10 - took 4+ hours. Well that's it. Schools over. Time to relax.



Watched Matrix 3 on DVD.

Today was the Data Structures exam and the final one at that. Not too bad [I think]. Made a stupid mistake with hashing and the DIV vs. % symbol. Wrote the prof. afterwards explaining it.



One more assignment then the term is finished...

Monday, April 19, 2004

Today was the Database exam. I think it went ok. Spent rest of the day studying for CSC204 - Data Structures.

Sunday, April 18, 2004

Spent the day studying for CSC204 - Data Structures.

Saturday, April 17, 2004

Today was the Java exam. Two parts: Theory (~@2:00pm 1hr) vs. Practical (~@5:15pm 2hrs). The Theory was OK, but surprisingly the Practical went well. Two questions 1) Build a 'set' that would hold integers and 2) Implement the Observer Pattern. Notify an, 'OddObserver' when odd integer was input. If an integer already exists in the set notify the, 'SameObserver'.



The time spent doing the previous assignment and praticing with the Borland IDE was well worth it.

Suppose to spend the day studying. Part of it is to also get the CSC121 assignment done, since I had some questions and professors was available I decided to go in and talk him. It certainly helped, but probably took too much time. We talked about how 50% for exams was unreasonable. Since I can't win the case I've now excepted it and on we go!



Discovered a huge problem with using VS.NET for my last assignment, so that's out.



ECY had phoned asking to borrow the camera. No problem.



Finally finished the assignment @~9:30pm, at which point I had diner.



I decided that I'd go to the Grande-M and on the way drop off the camera to ECY.



Go home ~@11:30pm, waited a-while 'cause ECY said he would begin working on his school photography project and might have questions. Went to bed ~@12:15pm.

Wednesday, April 14, 2004

Got back the Data Structures quiz - haven't looked at the grade yet, assuming it is perfect.



Second exam today: CSC101 - Wow - Not good. Onto Java...



Tuesday, April 13, 2004

First exam today in CSC - Machine Language. A fair exam - hoping everything went OK.

Monday, April 12, 2004

Last day of school. Today's a 'extension' day. Due to the recent strike, one extra day was added to the end to make up for the missed Monday. I had a lot to get done, but everything went well.
