Watched Lost in Translation again. Missed Japan. Strange how I feel
like even more of a foreigner in Canada than I did in Japan. Strange
how one good friend can make all the difference.
We finished the lab report with some time to spare, although the
discussion part took us a while. Antony’s great as a lab partner, and
working on a lab report in pairs is much more fun than writing parts
I decided not to go into the clustering features of Weka, focusing
instead on decision trees. I posted the second project and tried it
out, so I know that it’s pretty straightforward. I had an oops-my-bad
moment: forgot to tell them about the handouts, so they had a hard
time following along in the lab. How embarrassing.
I’m getting into the hang of reading academic papers. I need to step
up the pace, though, as the end of the term is coming soon.
I didn’t get to work on this. I should concentrate on this paper
because the end of the term is coming soon, and I’ll be very busy
marking DSS stuff.
Haven’t started on the Christmas cards yet. Had fun at Michael’s party, though.
Last week was all about having fun with people. Ubuntu talk on
Tuesday, breakfast on Wednesday, meeting Wednesday night, roommates
party Thursday night and Friday night, and Mike’s party on Saturday
It wasn’t all play, though. ;) I got into the rhythm of reading
papers, and the bookmarklet I wrote for posting stuff to my research
wiki was useful. Labs for the decision support systems class were hard
to prepare, but I’m surviving somehow. I wrote a lot: a lab report, a
couple of quick reflections, Planner newbie guides, and two
ShortStories. I’m getting there!
