It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood.

It was an absolutely gorgeous day out. Sunny and 75. Doesn't get much better than that. Of course, I was stuck inside all day, working at work, and then I had my Java class. Fortunately, my Parallel class was cancelled, so I came home and worked on parallel (at least I have a window and fresh air at home). Unfortunately, I was dressed really sharply today, and I only went to one class where anybody could see me. Not that mattered, since there aren't really any women in my classes. Well, none that aren't married or are getting married, etc.

Back to classes. The last third of my Java class was totally useless. We talked about how networks work, and how to do networking in Java. Problem being that Data Comm was my concentration, so I am very familiar with how networks work. It would have been interesting to learn how Java does networks, except that my Data Comm 2 class had projects in Java, so I have done this stuff before. Oh well.

The parallel is going ok, although I changed the algorithm to be more robust, which, of course, made part of it extremely slow. I am not sure how to get around this yet, since it involves reading a database for a value and updating it at the same time, which is not something you typically do.

Work is going well. Solved lots of problems today, and spent some time learning Perl. It doesn't seem like it is going to be too difficult, though I sort of wish RIT would teach things like Perl. While at work, I managed to schedule an inspection for Friday, and I am telecommuting Wednesday, so it should be a pretty ok week. We are into week 8 after all...
