10 Days Is Too Long...

To go without posting around here. I used to be so much more dedicated to this venture. I still think it has value, but there is this odd combination of not feeling like I have anything valuable to say along with this really crazy business of late that keeps me from writing.

I had a test in my Data Bases class this week, it was far more theoretical than I had prepared for. Unfortunate for me. I guess I need to spend some more time "thinking" about the implications of the material presented in class.

Next week presents an exam in Networking. It would be nice not to be caught off guard with this class. Right now it looks like Saturday will be spent in the library with a pile of books and some assignments.

Operating Systems is my most interesting class this semester. Not trivial at all, but motivating none the less. I am working on the project with a friend from the class, and we managed to run our first "hello world" program on our OS kernel on Wednesday night. It might not sound like much to you, but it really represents quite an accomplishment. In the next three weeks we need to get context switching up and running.

Work is Work. Interesting and challenging as always.

Four to five hours of sleep each night isn't something one should thrive on. I am living on adrenaline, caffeine, and a prayer.
