    Gaussian elimination is no problem, trying to figure out an algorithm for doing it on the pc systematically and itelligently is another story. But today we went over soultion sets of linear systems, parametric vector form, and linear dependence/independence. Some boring stuff to hear for a 3 hour time span.

    Commander, how does a guy become the VP of a school if he's like that... don't people vote?

    I had my last final, and I learned that I can not ace them all Seriously, got 40/41 and was frustrated with that cause I knew the answer... oh well, can't win them all. Weiredest thing, i do not really want to leave the school just yet (taking summer quarter off). Found out that sometimes the instructors can be pretty cool, and I happened to be one of the lucky ones to get one.
    This is my signature. Remind me to change it.

    Only homos and chicks run for office in High School, so you don't have much of a choice. There are very few exceptions. And gay people are good at that kind of stuff.

    > How were you building the adder?

    We programmed a GAL16V8D25LP with ABEL and used various other ICs to complete the circuit - I think we had a couple 377s, a 7408, a 7404 (to buffer the clock), a 150-something and one other chip. The code was right - I think it was just going to be a matter of ripping out this horrendous circuit and debugging it in about an hour and a half - not gonna happen.

    I learned that the only difference between High School and Jail is that they have to convict you to send you to jail. Oh well, one more day then summer

    I learnt that you should always look out for people who try to throw things around/at others, because you don't have a built-in radar...
