Due to hardware issues, we have decided to give an additional extension for those who want to use late days. If your last handin was Sunday 10/18 11:59PM or earlier, you have used 0 late days. If your last handin was Monday 10/19 11:59PM or earlier, you have used 1 late day. If your last handin is Wednesday 10/21 11:59 *AM* or earlier, you have used 2 late days. That is, you have a 12-hour extension, if you want to use 2 late days on Compression.

FrontDesk back up + 1 day extension

FrontDesk is back up. Please check your most recent assignment submission; if it was not graded, you will need to resubmit your assignment. Because of the problems with FrontDesk, we have granted a 1 day extension. The new due date is 10/18 11:59 PM; if you use 2 late days, the final deadline is 10/20 11:59 PM.

Compression lab is now due 10/17

The due date for Compression has been moved from 10/15 11:59 PM to 10/17 11:59 PM. This also means that you may turn in the assignment by 10/18 11:59 PM at the cost of 1 late day, and by 10/19 11:59 PM at the cost of 2 late days.

Also, in preparation for the lab, I recommend the following PDF, prepared by Owen Durni, that shows all of the compressions and transformations that you will be implementing. Note also that you will be implementing the Burrows-Wheeler transformation slightly differently than what was presented in recitation.
