Today I had a good class. “Foundations of Computer Theory” is taken by Radzizowski. The theory here really pushes one to think. Problems that computers find unsolvable while creative thinking applies are interesting and challenging. Suddenly we begin to map the limits of reasoning in the 8 th week of classes and as Phaedrus in “Zen and the art of Motorcycle Mainteanance” described the air is starting to get a little thin here. I feel like I am in Third year again, exploring reasoning and the process itself, coming up with small discoveries and serendipity. Only this time I have a faculty and other students who share what I can see. Tougher challenges lie ahead. 10 weeks of classes is just too short.
It’s getting cold here in Rochester, 2 degrees centigrade to be precise and verbose. Its been another fruitful day. I just managed to get my Programming Langauge Theory assignments in time, oh brother will have to plan much more than what I am doing. Also got started on a research paper which could be published in some time soon. Now, this is real motivation. There is also now an opportunity for me to ensure my dad does not have to pay any more fees than is necessary. Now, this is definitely the big fish for me. Apart from that life is getting busier. I am now working on a Distributed Document Processing system which is currently suffering from deadlocks (ouch). Anyway, once that’s over with I am sure everything will only get worse. I still have to submit a paper on Peer to Peer networks 🙂
Well, at least I blog every day right?
It has been an extra ordinary day.
Then I did attend a lecture by Jeff Sonstein, “Java for Programming”. It so happend that I had
to take notes for that class. Thats how I ended it up there in the first place. I checked out his webpage and found Movable Type !! Voila an hour later my website is up and running. This is way better than having to type in the text within HTML, makes my job a lot easier. Thank you Jeff 🙂
Now all I gotta do is keep blogging and I won’t have any excuses not to. Man laziness IS the mother of innovation.
Things have not really been easy this week. Considering how tough it is to decode MSN’s SPA, phew, I should cry for help, does anyone know anything about the details of this protocol ! The Table Tennis Tournament at Persistent is moving along well, heres a neat picture of the Cricket team with me in the lower right hand corner in Jeans and a Maroon T-Shirt :). Also with me from right to left last row, is Hemant, Amit and sitting in the row directly above me is Jaidev. I will be moving to Vijays house for atleast a week, man I am going to miss my home quite a bit. 26 days of driving lessons works out to 4 weeks. I hope and pray Pradeep gets well!
