Apple store contacted me yesterday and asked for my address to ship the iBook to. No questions asked. (Although there was a late call on monday informing me that it was ready for pickup. I semi-ranted on the fact that I tried to pick it up from FedEx, but no one could do anything about it. The guy informed me that he would get back to me "tomorrow"/tuesday, as he was closing up the store.) Here's to hoping they're not shipping by very-slow-ground or something. And that nothing goes wrong. I may call back in a few days to see if there's a tracking number... don't really like calling the Apple store though; I always feel kinda bad bothering them, since there's usually absurdly busy. Business is good there~
The four classes I'm taking this semester all seem good.
CS411: Database systems - The professor is awesome. I need to contact him and see if he's got any pointers for someone who's also looking into security. And he's got an accent, possibly british? Class is absurdly crowded though.
ECE410: Digital Signals Processing I - 2 hour long lectures ::wince:: by the professor is very upbeat. And apparently includes plans in his lectures to involve the entire class ("Ok, form small groups and discuss such-and-such"). Which is good. Ah, incentive to NOT fall behind and look stupid. Everything is modular! :)
ECE440: Solid State Electronic Devices - Like diodes, P/n junctions, or something like that. Crowded classroom. First lecture was ok, although there's a possiblity of it being slightly boring. Professor informed us that 440 was probably the only class where we'll have to use everything we learned in the past. Uh oh...
GER250/ENG267/CompLit 250: Grimms' Fairy Tales in their European Context. Ahhahahaha. I'm going to love this class. The professor is an amusingly upbeat psychology professor, so there was some ToKish mentioning of knowing things in the past. Damn crowded class though. At least I can get there's early, but... ugh, it's on the south side of campus, which means a rush northwards to the engineering building (everitt) for ECE440. Oh, and it's a Advanced Comp class, which means essays (good essays) will have to be written. And the professor admits it's going to be hard, since, unlike Shakespeare, fairy tales are rather one-dimentional. Hmmm. Time to test what IB has taught me.
Yes, my semester is light-ish, but with three 400 level classes, I'm unwilling to risk taking more. Shall try to take less and do better. Maybe?
