After the quiz (which I'm sure was a disaster, but less so than last week), I went to sign up for a "space symposium". I only wanted to attend the talk that took place last night, but it turned out that I signed up for the whole weekend (I shot off an e-mail to see if I could sort that out). I then went to the talk, which was pretty interesting; it featured speakers on the Mars Exploration Rovers, the Cassini mission, and some other rather cool stuff. Apparently the MOST (Microvariability and Oscillations of STars) space telescope is the first telescope to be based off a cartoon character. And that character is Spongebob. Nearly everyone in the auditorium cracked up when the comparison picture was displayed.
When this "space symposion" finally finished up (an hour and a half late; but I wasn't complaining), I decided it was a good time to watch a movie. I scoured my hard drive for one that I hadn't yet seen, and hit on "Pi". It's a pretty creepy, though absolutely fascinating movie. The most disturbing part, however, was after I turned it off and looked down to see calculus all over my arm. So I didn't waste any time washing that off.
Apart from these relatively few events, my weekend has been rather boring. Today, I've already watched two movies, but I also did a shitload of work on my computer science assignment (yes, the switching of semesters did nothing to rid me of the scourge of c++). There is something notable about that, however. I actually understand what I am doing. I sat down with a pen and paper, and wrote up a bunch of code, then ran through it, and it worked. The first time. Then I typed it into the computer and it still worked. Well, it compiled, anyways. I have yet to test the program as a whole (for obvious reasons; it's not complete yet). But I have a good feeling about this one.
Anyways, that's all for now. I'll try to update more often (yah right, as if that's gonna happen), mostly because it seems to increase my stats (even though nobody seems to be clicking on the ads! come on, people!).
