First day

Well, Microsoft were here today. They gave a presentation to anyone that wanted to come along, which was all very good. Lots of stuff given out, and plenty of interest.
So much so in fact that the lecturers asked the presenters to do the presentation again in their lecture times. Therefore, we did another presentation in the afternoon to all first year engineering and technology students. Tomorrow we are presenting to all second years doing these courses.
This is likely to mean we will cancel the afternoon presentation for tomorrow, so don’t presume that it is on. If you want to come along, you may as well (if you can) come along to the 159.201 lecture at 9 tomorrow in the refectory down in the Arts area of Massey. Yes, 9AM on a Friday – how dedicated are you? Tell me you read this and we’ll sort you out a prize if you aren’t a second year

Microsoft vists begin

Tomorrow and Friday Paul and entourage from Microsoft will be at Massey. Do come along. It’s important to me: All Microsoft posters were ripped down almost instantaneously after being put up, and I think Microsoft would rather present to people rather than an empty room.
I can only summise that people really like Microsoft (or me), and want a Microsoft poster (or one with my handwriting on it) to put up at their own place. Thats understandable, but imagine how much better getting free Microsoft stuff would be, and learning about the stuff Microsoft is doing this year for us (or alternatively….meeting me…..bah…who am I kidding )
So, those places and times again:
Thursday, 16th March, AH2 from 11am to 12 noon.
Friday, 17th March, AH3 from 1pm to 2pm
See you there,

Killing three birds with one stone

Really busy with Massey, it’ll be good to get this semester out if the way (even though it just started). Presently my TODO list includes:

  • Preparing my seminar presentation for Object-oriented Software Engineering
  • Meetings with lecturers around Massey for projects and my research
  • Haskell programming assignment *shudders*
  • My research

So, how does this link my the title? Well, I’ve managed to get the work I’ve been doing on Centruflow to become my research project, and I’ve managed to get my seminar topic for another paper to be about something I’m researching for my research project. That’s sure to save some time….

That is all
