As of late this afternoon, the last quarter was finished.
What does this mean? I only have this to focus on. It's go time.

The presentation seemed to be fairly successful tonight.
Overall I was very impressed by the quality of the presentations. While by no means was anyone a motivational speaker that commanded attention, they were generally well thought out and effective. Some stronger than others, but I enjoyed the entire experience.

This idea has been bouncing around my head a bit lately, but here's an actually implementation:

Thursday, March 5, 2009


AMS 147 Final: Next Thursday (5-10 hours study time)
AMS 147 Project: Next Next Thursday (10-15 hours)
AMS 147 HW 7: Last Friday (2-3 hours)
AMS 147 HW 8: Tomorrow (2-3 hours)
EE 157 Project: Next Next Thursday (10-15 hours)
EE 157 Final: Next Next Thursday (Petersen take home. Ergh.) (10-15 hours)
CE 123A Presentation: Next Next Monday (5-10 hours)
CE 123A Final Report: ? Next Next Monday? (~4-5 hours)
CE 123A Block Diagram: Next Next Thursday? (2 hours left?)
CE 123A Team Charter: Next Next Thursday? (2 hours left?)
CE 123A Project Proposal: Next Next Thursday? (2 hours left?)
TBP District Conference: Tomorrow and Saturday. (5+ hours tomorrow, 7-8 hours Saturday.)

At least we have the team for the 123A items. Time to study.

The beginning.

So, at the very moment activity inside my head is running on high. There's quite a bit to do still before I can really focus on what is going to go on here. This weekend is going to be crazy, and I may need some time for myself soon. Little bits and pieces are coming together, not necessarily at the speed I'd like, but at a speed that's expected even from five busy people. Next quarter I think things will improve, particularly if we can view this as our job and potentially our livelihoods.

There are quite a few design choices to be made still too, particularly regarding documentation. The whole blog concept as an academic journal though, I think is really spot-on. I can't keep equations here comfortably, but I'll keep my pen-and-paper variety notes for that. If they're important enough they can make it up here.

Anyway, just some initial thoughts.
