New: Piazza forum for Comp327

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

All of you should have received an email inviting you to join the Piazza group for Comp327. If you didn’t get the email, bug me directly. We’re going to give them a shot as a class forum, place for you to ask us (and each other) questions. Assignments and such will continue to be posted here on this blog.

Photographer visiting our class on Thursday

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

Apparently the Rice campus photographer will be visiting our class on Thursday. If you don’t want to be photographed, you might choose to sit in the back of the room. I’ll have to be careful what I write on the board since it could be preserved for all eternity.

HW2 is now online

Also, we’re still one lecture behind (i.e., the lecture for today / Thursday is what’s listed on Tuesday in the course schedule). We’ll fix this later. Don’t panic.

Please complete the internal registration for Comp327 under HW0: Internal Registration.

You must also make sure you’re properly registered so far as the university is concerned.
