color cycle (slow)

Tick... tick... tick...

Physics exam in three hours, twelve minutes...

I should do well; I've been doing fine on everything except the trig and I get a TI-89 and experience with screwing up a lot to help me with that. Wish me luck, all...

Maybe it will go as well as the CS 241 lab I got back. 107.8%, which isn't bad at all... (It's a natural 98%, but the week-early finish nets me a x1.1 bonus, so big extra credit. Yay! And Professor Goldman said she had very little trouble following my code this time, unlike the last two times! Double yay! But the graders still gave up and handed it to her to grade because they couldn't decipher my code. Un-yay, but the net is two instances of "yay", so it's a net gain.)

And here I go, off to my Physics-based execution...

And I just discovered that tonight's TopCoder match is a really late one- 9:00pm (my time zone), so if I hurry back after the exam, I might be able to make it. Or I might not feel like it, so I'm not preregistering, but I might play, which is cool.

Exam and TopCoder yay!

I finished the exam with 15 minutes to spare, giving me ample time to get back here and register for tonight's TopCoder SRM. Yay for unwinding with recreational programming, and yay for my feeling I did well on the test!

I actually gave up with 15 minutes extra. I was jammed on one problem as I had been for the last ten minutes; everything else was completed. So I had an option:

A. Beat my head against my desk for 15 minutes trying to get that last 4%.
B. Relax, go back, and play TopCoder.

My choice was obvious!
