Another one gone and another one gone

So that's the week done with, then. Hard to believe it's only week 4. Hard to realise it's already week 4.

Instead of writing up the assignment last night I decided to sleep. This morning I had that classic Friday thing of a headache shifting from the right side of my head to the left while I slept. Yes, I've had this before, and yes, it always happens over two days which end in a deadline. It's sort of intriguing.

Assignment 3 was so time-consuming in algebra that the three hours before the lecture proved to be insufficient for writing up the entire thing. Again I had to finish it in my lunch "break", but this time it went into the box slightly more complete - all of the first nine questions were done to my satisfaction. I didn't know where to start with question 10 and I didn't have time to engage in further investigation.

During the write up I also solved my problem with question 5. Turns out I kinda, sorta didn't read the question properly at first. I got so tangled up with trying to find the directional derivatives, I didn't pay attention with what we were supposed to be doing with them - finding for which points a certain property holds, not showing that it holds in general [which it doesn't]. Setting r = 1 [see the comments on Monday's post] solved the problem.

I believe I went to a lecture today. It was interesting, but I don't remember a thing about it. There's another QUAN assignment due in two weeks, and again, I resent having to spend time on it.

Did you see that Brian May just handed in his PhD thesis in astronomy?

It was due in 1971.

That's funny, I could have sworn I just posted a comment, but when the page reloaded it turned out to have been Bruce. *puzzles*

Yes, I heard about May's thesis. Yay for him. Yay for lorne, too, who gets a star.
