Most of the last few weeks have been taken up by schoolwork. I went to several talks - Larry Smith's talk on creating killer apps, Eric Laforest's talk on 2nd generation stack architectures, the Google presentation, and the Short Attention Span Math Seminars put on by the {Pure Math, Applied Math, Combinatorics and Optimization} Club.

Yesterday my OS group and I went out house hunting. We managed to find a nice place north of campus which was within short walking distance of the repsective workplaces of all three of us. The place seemed in good shape, with a good-sized kitchen and on-site laundry.

The rest of the evening was spent working on OS. This assignment is based around fixing and adding features to Nachos's rudimentary file system. After some initial difficulties, we got it working and managed to increase its maximum file size from 3840 bytes to something closer to 135k. (The sector size was only 128 bytes, so there's only so much bang you can get for your buck)

Just two more weeks of class and four assignments, then it's studying for exams.
