Doc Sarmenta story. I arrived at F228 a little too early for my 3:00 CS21A class, and I ran into Dr. Sarmenta packing up. Some students asked him if they could consult with him, but as he’ll be fairly busy due to Faculty Day, I volunteered to meet them instead. Got introduced as Sacha Chua, one of the head TAs around here. I replied, “We have head TAs?” Dr. Sarmenta continued, “She does most of the stuff.” :D
Volunteered to conduct CS21B tutorials at 10:00 AM tomorrow, F230.
Doc V story. Had thorny discrete mathematics problem that I needed help with. Doc V stumped. :) Actually, talked about problem with Eric over dinner, and he had a nifty insight that greatly simplified the problem.
Doc Sarmenta story. Presented thesis proposal. Earned “That’s very exciting” comment. :)
Gino story. Gloated about the fact that my thesis is humanitarian, useful, involves Linux, and doesn’t have a GUI. Wooohooo! :D
Hey, I think this actually works.

Existentialism: no “nature” but we have history. The moment we are born, we cannot say that that is us. That we are fixed. We begin creating the history that will become our history.
Maybe I should store the tasks in a MySQL database. MySQL allows us to do a simple relevance query. Hmmm. This may give me an excuse to go Java as well as Emacs.
now we’re talking about relationships
make remember use emacspeak.
learn enough to become a major contributor ito Emacspeak
if i store it in a database, then I can use queries.. I need to also find out how to make bbdb use lots of different source files
If I store all tasks in a database, then I need to be able to quickly refer to it. Actually, i I can cache it, that’d be nice. K
That means I’ll have unique task IDs, which allows me to use pretty good task references.
Most of the time I’ll be dealing with just the day’s tasks
I want something to remind me what I’m currently working on, and the last few things I’ve been working on. For example, in a conversation, I may occasionally refer to the last things people say. This would be a circular list.
Research and Development – CompSAT
We learn so that we may learn more in this committee.
I believe that we should develop a society in ourselves such that stealing should no longer be necessary. We should be a group with everyone equal, with everyone sharing common knowledge. It’s not a competition thing. That’s what I want for this committee. We are going to have activities later based on that. We are all learning here. It is not for any specific… it’s not about being able to separate yourself from the group and being able to say that you’re superior or elite. CompSAT as a helper in this community and that’s what this organization is about.
We need to know the people we work with. Sometimes people are harder to work with than computers. People are different. Let’s introduce ourselves and tell each other something about ourselves.

One of these days I really should improve the emacspeak interface to many functions. Perhaps I should consider how to make it in Java…
Problem-solving focus for CS110.
What is traditionally covered? Stacks, queues, trees, O(n), recursion, dynamic programming, searching, sorting.
Web development – cartolina, permanent marker
Objectives: involve them in the design process and show them how the design process works.
Start with the system concept. What kind of system do we need? Who will use it?
Assumptions: Social Analysis in the context of the pastoral cycle
1. Before you can make a meaningful relevant social analysis, there must be that personal connectedness. There must be that link between you and that social reality, between you and the poor. Solidarity. Without the connectedness, what happens? You cannot analyze what you do not know and what you are not familiar with. The call to find God in the ordinary. In all things. To encounter the face of God in the least.

Always keep your users in mind. Always remember why you’re doing a system – to make hard things easy and impossibly things possible.

I feel so stressed out. Traffic will do that to a person – traffic and the thought of being late. But it’s no one’s fault but my own – as my mom pointed out, I could just have started commuting at 4:30, and maybe I’d even be there by now. still, there is nothing I can do about that.
maybe I should eat first.

Today I will finish my CS178 module so that it is out of the way.
I will also reborrow the graded problems book.
I need to meet Hans, don’t forget.
