a function of more than two inputs is linearly separable if a hyperplane separates the true cases from the false cases.

Hello, internet.

It is finally Spring break!  It sure took its time getting here, though.  This last week, I spent *almost* every free moment I had studying for my Computer Science midterms on Friday.  I think I probably spent 15-20 hours forcing myself to understand, among other concepts, the likes of Sigmoid Units, Red-Black Trees, and the (worst, average, and best case) efficiencies of about 6 or 7 different sorting algorithms, plus how to implement them (upshot: use quick sort if you’re me, use merge sort if you’re smarter than me, avoid bubble sort unless you’re doing something trivial).  In the end, both tests were significantly less complicated than I had been preparing for.  I’ll take that, but it was actually a little frustrating because I spent so much time studying the harder concepts that I think I got tricked by some really easy questions that I just wasn’t expecting.  Oh well, I’m gonna just try not to think about it until I get the grades back.

Midterms weren’t the only thing we had to worry about finishing in the Computer Science classes this week, there was also a pretty cool assignment involving programming Lego robots.  My group pretty much rocked it and got some extra credit, so that’s about as good as it can get, I think; an A+ for playing with Legos… not bad.

This week I’m probably not gonna be great at letting you know what sort of stuff happened on campus recently; I spent almost no time doing fun things, just a lot of library-camping.

Yesterday, there was one cool event; at 9pm, a group of interested parties gathered in Council Chambers to watch the series finale of Battlestar Galactica on the huge screen.  We had a very good time, and it was great to watch the best show on televesion ever in the history of the world on what basically amounts to be a movie theater screen.  It was bittersweet and epic.  Oh well, nothing gold can stay, Ponyboy.

Wow there’s a lot of nerd in this post….

I’m gonna see Ratatat in a week and Defiance, Ohio in two… does that make up for anything?
