Frontdesk back up

Frontdesk should be operating normally now (it still might be slow under high load, but you should be able to submit).
  • Homeworks turned in before Thursday 23:59:59 are 0 days late.
  • Homeworks turned in between Thursday 23:59:59 and Saturday 23:59:59 are 1 day even though Frontdesk will say they are 1-2 days late.
  • Homeworks turned in between Saturday 23:59:59 and Sunday 23:59:59 are 2 days late even though Frontdesk will say they are 3 days late.

Frontdesk Issues

Due to heavy load and lots of submissions from over 200 students, Frontdesk has run out of disk space and hence cannot process or accept more submissions. The frontdesk maintainer has been alerted and will fix the problem as soon as possible.

The course staff will discuss and decide how this will affect late days and make an announcement when a decision has been reached. In the meantime (i.e. ASAP) if you ran into submission issues, you'll want to email your submission zip to your TA.

Updated due dates, office hours

HW2 theory is now due in lecture Thursday, and the programming portion will still be due Thursday night at midnight. Be sure to check the calendar for updates to office hours in the next couple days. I've rescheduled my office hours tomorrow to noon - 1:30 (during the normal lecture slot) and TAs are rescheduling their office hours as needed without posting an announcement. We hope to have recitation on Wednesday, but this (of course) depends on university policies and the upcoming second snowstorm.

No lecture Tuesday

As you might already know, CMU classes are canceled Tuesday. Check back soon for details of how (and if) this further affects HW2 deadlines this week.

HW2 theory due in recitation

To accommodate the snow and office hours changes, the theory portion of HW2 is now due in recitation Wednesday, not in lecture Tuesday. If you miss your recitation or otherwise need more time to complete your homework, you may alternatively turn in the theory portion of your homework to Charlie's office by 4:30 Wednesday. The HW2 programming portion is still due Thursday night as planned.

HW2 Theory Update

Question 2 of Snake's theory has been revised to specify that a,b cannot equal 1, since logarithms are undefined for base 1. The new versions are available at the same location (under the lectures section of the site).

Office Hours Change

Because of the EOC on Thursday, I'm going to have to change my office hours this week to 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM at the Wean 8th Floor Couches.

Charlie's office hours rescheduled

I'm sorry for the short notice, but I need to move my office hours from tonight to tomorrow morning: 10 am to noon.
