Thoughts and Ramblings

General things I find of interest.

New Semester

Well, the semester is now into its third week and things are going alright. I just had my first week of teaching lab, and things pretty much went as expected. The problem is that the students are expected to do some assembly within lab, but non of them have seen x86 assembly in class yet. Essentially, I had the fun of teaching them the basics of assembly just so they could do the lab.

Pepper Spray

Today when I went to go teach class, I was greeted by all of my students sitting outside the classroom. I figured this was another case of the previous prof not vacating the room on time. I was wrong Turns out, someone had the brilliant idea of spraying the room with pepper spray. In the course of doing this, the room was effectively unusable, so we had to find another room in which to have class.
