    Nah... I preffer to see something like
    "RTFM - read the f..ing manual"
    or
    "ACP - accelerated control procedure"

    if the lecturer uses every time this magic JustAnotherVagueAcronym in his speacking, just in case I missed it when he said it first time
    The first 90% of a project takes 90% of the time,
    the last 10% takes the other 90% of the time.

    >> I don't know if I can film it or not, I'll look into it, but it probably won't happen.

    I think it'd be really neat if you could.
    I may learn something.

    I thought he was just using slides a guide for himself more than the audience?

    Yeah, I am. The powerpoint will have little useful information.

    Thanks for the tips.

    I just found that I have a digital voice recorder. I think I will bring that with me when I present. I will have to then use my computer microphone to put it onto my computer, however. I think that would be a good thing to share with you all because I would like to get input from other programmers.

    Whatever you say Bob
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    whoa, haven't updated that in a while. Maybe I should still actually make a game, ha. Actually, I could probably quickly whip up something similar to the hovertank game posted on gamingdl (the one with corny movement and ad hoc physics)

    Well I just gave it, and I recorded it on the voice recorder ( had it in my shirt pocket ). According to my voice recorder it lasted about 40 minutes. I have to go home this weekend before I can put it on my computer.

    I didn't realize how nerdy and nasally my voice sounds to other people until I listened to myself.

    The presentation didn't go spectacularly great. I was a bit nervous, but the worst was that , as I was afraid of, most of the people in the class were just taking the programming class because they were forced to. The professor would keep asking me very detailed math questions. At one point I was trying to explain how to use quaternions and why they are useful in terms of numerical stability and decreased number of computations and, well, I just kind of got a lot of blank stares.

    I did get a lot of praise when I ran the simulation and I took the computer hovercraft over a bunch of jumps, but whenever I tried explaining anything technical, well, I might as well have been speaking arabic. Awkward.

    Oh well, it was good for the experience of giving presentations, at least
