Survived my first day of classes! Much work done today, catching up on old tasks (mostly e-mail that had accumulated). I may need to unbounce them (must figure out how to deal with changing mail addresses aside from constant rewrites). Goals for tomorrow: CS139.3 cram lecture, assignment problems (one or two easy ones, a few more challenging ones). For stacks: brace matching, postfix evaluation (easy).

3. Prepared for CS21A

Okay, I should be satisfactorily prepared for CS21A now. For Dr. Sarmenta's class, I can walk through parts of the lab exercise and challenge them with drawn figures on the board. For my class, I plan to go through the post office simulation. If I have time after the debriefing, I'll do an intro to the lab. The interactive part should be doable.


2. Pasta carbonara out of a package

Categories: CookOrDie#28 -- Permalink
Finally got around to trying out the packaged carbonara mix. It was okay, although a bit on the salty side. It tasted, well, like carbonara. One package can be used for 4 servings as a side dish, but since I was too lazy to cook a separate dish and store the left-over carbonara, I had it as the main dish. Some more variety would probably make it less like classy instant noodles.

Tomorrow I'm going to try pancakes, if I wake up early enough. I should find a sari-sari store that lets me buy one egg at a time. I had to buy a dozen, and I have no plans of finishing them all during the week. That'd be unhealthy.

I wonder if we can set up some kind of coop...

I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I still had a fair amount of time after getting home, cooking dinner, cleaning our mold-encrusted toaster (eeeeeeeewwww!), and fixing my clothes and my bed. I feel more or less at ease. =)

1. Reflections on class today

- CS21A-B: **OK:** The mail system simulation mostly worked,

although it could still be tweaked slightly. His slides were okay, too. **NI:** People need to be assigned reasons to use the mail system simulation.

- CS21A-G: **OK:** My slides. Ended three minutes early, but

otherwise pretty okay. Got a few laughs. **NI:** I could use a presentation chockful of filler material.

- CS110-A: **OK:** I prepared slides with the outline. **NI:** I ended

much too early. Should always have the next session ready, I suppose. Also, SHOULD NOT WRITE ON BOARD WITH PERMANENT MARKER.

- CS139.3: **OK:** Again, brief overview with class outline and

policies. 3n+1 was a surprisingly enlightening problem. **NI:** Brief primer on working with the online judge? Also, scared a number of the students.
