The “toppers” went for a “heart-to-heart talk” with the HoD. The HoD is unrepentant. Its we who are to blame for the debacle. Another fact which became widely known was the presence of an information network gathering all the news that could be used to effectively shut up the students in a debate/discussion/argument.
We (my team, that is) have finally got ourselves a project. For now, its “Visualization of Equal Area using Java applet”. And you guessed it right. I started Perl because of Blosxom, abandoned it. Started Python for my OOAD course, abandoned it. Started PHP because of the wiki business, abandoned it. Started MySQL becuase of MediaWiki, abandoned it. C/C++ is the only language I’m continuing with. And that too, well, in a way that is far from satisfactory. It took me three days (thank God for holidays) to convert two structs and their associated functions to their corresponding classes…
So now, its Java. And of course, C++ is de rigueur.
I felt picked upon by the whole world. So calmly skipped college for two days. Or was going to. I remebered I had to fill up and submit the fourth year entrance form on the second day. A mad scramble for the demand drafts and a headlong rush to the college was how the two day break ended in. But well, the time I spent at home was relaxing. Cleaned up long overdue stuff and carried out other such mundane chores.
And now, its back to the daily treadmill.
