Random update [Dec. 13th, 2005|05:10 pm]
[Tags|, , , , ]

Yah, boo, sucks. Right now I'm into Exam season - just like half the other people on my friends list. AI was good though: it required two questions to be done, and two were duly done - genetic algorithms and search trees.

Now I've to panic about other things like graphics, which I've done next to no study for. Joy.

In general, things seem ok. I got a reply recently from a proposal to Joe Kiniry, about a software project next semester - he seems to be on for me getting a group to do a mud in python. So I'm quite happy to see that go ahead. Turns out he's an old mud/moo-head himself, which is good, because it means he gets what I'm trying to do. The downside is, he's used to muds and the like, so he'll probably have a high standard of what he expects. There again, it's 3rd year, he's going to have a high standard regardless!

On other news fronts, got a call from IBM yesterday to remind me that I should submit my CV to them. It's funny, when they were giving the aptitude tests they made sure we knew "Remember, we won't be chasing you up on this. It's your own responsibility". And now, well, seeing that I got a phone call, I'd call that chasing us up.

Anywho, if I end up on the Extreme Blue thing that'd be majorly cool. I'd still hope for a year at Sun though, still my first preference, but a summer at IBM would also be good.

So that's it for me. Except I've seen penguins, but that's for another post.

I forgot about the IBM thing. What's the story with handing in our CVs? I want to keep my options open.

I know what you mean about exams. Bah humbug. Mine start tomorrow. Which is why now I'm writing a top down adventure game engine in python with pygame. :)

I hate you Rory, with your brains. If you were a classifier, you'd be some kind of Find-Gay classifier, that predicts a class-label based on the how gay you are, and then went and found some gays.

So there.

RE: IBM. Either go to their site, or chat to me tomorrow for the email. Actually, no. check your LJ email, I'll give it to you that way.

Good luck in exams

Can you put hammers space into your mud?
*takes ninja hammer of doom out of hammer space - kills the flock+ of gays that Gom called out*

+ on a side note, what would you call a group of gays?
A floppy handful?
a sodomistic orgy?
a glitter

You'll have the answer to this for sure.

Well getting a call about a possibler job id good, right? But yeah the idea of them kind of following up on you when they said they wouldn't is probably annoying. Kind of sneaky, like Ninjas!
