still working on our operating system project. scott, brian, and mark pussed out and went to bed. i'm going to press on. this is what happens after 12 hours of programming operating system code:
The good part is I'm still alive. Tomorrow I won't be.
June 2nd, 2000
My roommate-for-only-4-more-days Eli is snoring really damn loud right now.... it's almost impressive. I want to go poke his nose or something and see what happens.
Still programming, and the darkness has gone away ... it's now getting bright outside and the birds are chirping. Still have 3 hours to program before class......
just committed my changes to the OS project and now i'm going to take a 2 hour nap before my last day of class for this quarter. (yes, that's 7,200 seconds of sleep... nevermind, i'm tired.)
Still awake. Worked on OS. Went to some classes... worked on OS. Off to two more classes, then going to work on classes for another 5 hours until it's all done. Turn-in deadline is midnight tonight. Trying to stay awake.... coffee and Dr. Pepper are helping me.
Ah yea' .... Staying up all night paid off ... I totally understand everything about our operating system now (even parts we didn't write) and watching traces of everything and following the assembly language in the binaries paid off ... I found the bug --- it was Brian's. Damn you Brian!!! :-P j/k ... it was kinda fun. Anyway, things run great now and we haven't got it to crash at all... Scott and I are adding some system calls to query the system statistics now so we can demostrate that our page replacement algorithm is efficient (compared to randomness) ....
i'm starting to get really tired. speech and walking are severely impaired, and it's difficult to keep my head up and my eyes open. project is about done.... of the 6 groups, 5 are here in the lab working, and 1 is in the lounge working / laying on the couch. i should go fight them for the couch ... or just go pass out on the floor in here. some of the other groups are very behind ... i doubt they'll even finish, think 1 or 2 even put the whole thing off until today. aight... gonna go die somewhere now.
done with OS ... scott woke me up from my nap so we could turn it in. going home now and going back to bed.
Finally back from campus .... was on campus for 13.5 hours. After the lab Scott and I went to Subway and watched the Blazers/Lakers game.... came back now and bunch of people are in the room watching the game here..... after it's done I'm going straight to bed.
