Good sign...

It's a good sign when, even though I have a cold, I aced a practice final exam (CS101, in this case) in 45 minutes. Oh, and the test in question has a two hour time limit...

I'll sit in the front row of the room, since there's a request on the test not to get up and leave if there's less than 10 minutes left so I don't disturb others. That might be waived if I sit in the recliner1, since it's in the front row, and I'd just as soon not be waiting that long. Or, perhaps I should e-mail Professor Goldman and ask if I can bring my Game Boy...

Oh, and I was a Semifinalist in the CS101 contest. http://www.cs.wustl.edu/~kjg/cs101/fall2003contest/ has all the entries; http://students.cec.wustl.edu/~abn1/Tetris.html has my game. The awards ceremony was memorable; it involved large numbers of sarcastic Academy Award jokes and Professor Goldman doing a striptease2.

Anyway, with how I did on that practice exam, I think I stand to do well on the real test!

It also helps that I've added up my points and came to the conclusion that my current score for the course is 105%. As the Final is only worth 15%, I can get a grade as low as a 70% and still wind up with more than 100% of the course...

1: "The Recliner" is a broken chair in the front row of Brown 118, our classroom and exam room. For unknown reasons, it leans back a significant amount; in lecture I avoid the seat because I wind up almost sitting in Rahav's lap. (Russian dude who prefers the second row.)

2: Don't worry, he only took off his clip-microphone, his overshirt, and his belt.
