Hmm, apologies for multiple entries yesterday (for anyone up early enough to have seen them). I kept getting messages saying "Cannot contact server - try again later", whenever I tried to submit the entry, so I didn't realise it was storing it every time...

Anyway, today's been fairly productive. Had a revision lecture this morning at Kings, which went much better than yesterday. And the professor recognised me when I arrived, and nodded to me, which was quite flattering. After that, went shopping (HMV sale), then over to Shepherds Bush to give blood, and prowl around the market in search of draught excluders (no luck, unfortunately). Finally, down to Waterloo to meet H-L, then back home.

Spent this evening sorting out the new ICSF TV list, which is now up on the website, and emailed to the relevant people, so that can now wait until after my exams next week before I have to do the next one.

First felt good that i missed the ADA revision as you deemed it futile, then
felt not so good about missing the AGT one. Thought it'll be the usual 'ask
questions if you have any' thing, and since we've already been given enough
help, i decided to skip it(aided by a backache!!) .......

Anyway, hope your revision's going well, mine's picked up after meeting Costas :-) !!

Good luck for the exams.

Well, the AGT lecture did follow the same standard format (Q&A). However, the questions were more intelligent at this session. Maybe that's because this is an elective course, rather than a mandatory one, and it's not seen as a soft option... So, there wasn't really any new stuff, but it helped to jog my memory on a couple of points. The most significant thing was when Prof Gibbons said that we don't need to remember pseudocode etc. - we just need to be able to persuade him that we understand the subject. So, for instance, we are free to explain Dijkstra's algorithm in normal English. At one point, he actually said "Look, this is piss easy", which was encouraging :)
