Made some silly mistakes on my Microelectronic Circuits Lab quiz, but it’s nothing that I won’t be able to recover from. Installed synergy, a utility that lets you easily share a single mouse and keyboard between multiple computers, on the Solaris cluster machines. Chris, Josh, and I agreed to have a study marathon and stay at school until our VLSI project was finished. I returned home somewhere around three in the morning, with a slightly inefficient but fully functional VLSI design.
Woke up in the early morning to change the flat tire with a spare. Promptly after, left for Big 10 Tires, carefully evading the rush hour interstate traffic. Eventually got a new tire, free of charge. VLSI was fortunately cancelled, which gave me more time to work Microelectronic Circuits Lab experiment. With the help of Chris, I eventually completed the full wave rectifier circuits and level indicator.
It’s three in the morning and I’m still awake. Made a valiant effort to go to school today only to find that my left front tire is flat again. So Adam took me to the gas station to get air for my spare tire, and we shortly after left for school. Worked on VLSI for several hours, completing the tutorial portion of the lab. I think that I might be getting a cold. This is unfortunate.
Updated the color scheme for this page, and cleaned up the PHP code. Finished Microelectronic Circuits Lab Homework 5 after much struggling. Wrote solutions to the Homework 6 CS1371 problems.
I woke up this morning to the joyful tune of a flat tire, and missed my classes because of it. I called Liberty Mutual (800-426-9898) to arrange a tow truck with Howard’s Wrecker Service, who soon after arrived at the apartment to take me to Big 10 Tires (770-955-6702) to have my flat tire fixed. An annoying experience, but since I didn’t have a pay dime, I suppose I can’t really complain.
Made some modifications to Homework 6, clarifying various problems and implementing the recommendations made by the professors. I also configured procmail and wrote filters to finally eliminate the W32.Swen.A worm. Chase Manhatten Bank increased my credit limit.
TA meeting in the afternoon. Turned in the compiler. Finished the final draft for Homework 6 for CS1371 and e-mailed it to Kevin. Recitation in the evening, where we reviewed questions from the previous exams and went over
imread and other image manipulation functions in MATLAB.
Implemented abstract syntax trees for the parser for our second project for Compilers. Met with Ben and Sanjay at night to go over precendence rules and verify test cases for the Tiger language.
TA meeting in the afternoon. Spent the day in lab working on non-linear operational amplifier circuit configurations. Went to school at ten o’clock at night to meet with the group and work on compilers. I arrived back at the apartment somewhere around four in the morning and promptly went to sleep.
Had an exam in VLSI, which was difficult because of the length of the exam. Graded CS1371 homeworks and exams. Finished the Microelectronic Circuits Lab report, and verified Homework 4 with the professor. Joined OpenNIC.
Wrote a large portion of Homework 6 for CS1371. Adam and I studied VLSI at the Georgia Tech library. Studied Hill substitution ciphers.
