In addition to being the binary representation for 5, the title of this post also reflects that yesterday I hit the 100 posts mark! Woot! I still need to convert and backdate all of my entries from kuro5hin… but since those are HTML and XJournal uses XML, it’s just a matter of writing a script that converts between the two formats. Yay for Perl’s HTML::Parser.
Also, I am now registered for classes for the fall semester:
- CS91 – Special Topics in Computer Security
- E26 – Computer Graphics
- E41 – Thermofluid Mechanics
- PHIL12 – Logic
I’m taking CS91 because as an SCCS sysadmin, it seems like studying security carefully would be a good thing. Also, it will be an interesting course, and fulfill one of my CS electives. Computer graphics is also a CS course (yay for the cross-listing that makes my double major possible), but it’s taught by Bruce, so I pretty much have to take it ;o). E41 is a required course for all engineers, even computer engineers like me. It’s annoying that I have to waste a course slot taking it, when there are interesting CS courses I’d like to take. I think it’s a requirement of the program so the Engineering major can be accredited, but I don’t really know. It had better be, otherwise I’d be even more annoyed than I already am.
Philosophy 12, Logic, seems like a good cop-out huge manatees course for Natural Science people to take. I’ve heard good things about it. Does anyone know what Prof. Baker is like? Will he make me crazy?
