TGIF

I realize that I have been less than perfect at my blogging in recent days. Really, there is no excuse. I just haven’t set aside the time to sit down and write my doings. If I were to give an excuse, I would say that it was that I have been trying to acclimate to my new schedule. But since there are no excuses, I won’t say that.

I sure have a lot to do. There is already a task or two to be working on in every class. Hopefully I will have the time this weekend to get these projects started. There is a lot more reading than I had expected. Also even with the knowledge that I have of Java, I can tell that C++ is going to take some time.

After work today, I went to go look at laptop computers. I wasn’t very impressed. I don’t think that I will ever find what I am expecting in a windows laptop. They were all too big, too ugly, too slow, and over priced. It amazes me that more people don’t notice what Apple has to offer by way of laptop computers. Any Apple laptop now on the market would beat most of the windows laptops selling at similar or lower prices. The only reason that I haven’t jumped on the Apple bandwagon for my laptop solution is that I have reservations about compatibility of code that I am supposed to turn in at school. Microsoft has graciously donated Visual Studio to every student in the School of Computing at my university. As a result, all of the exercises in lab are completed in that environment. Can I do my homework for school on an Apple machine and have it run on the machines at school? Answers would be nice. Perhaps I will email a professor and ask.

Thank goodness it is Friday, and I have a weekend to rest, relax, and study.
