a wasted day

by oBelIX

Saturday, 2 Days before POPL

1000 hrs

I wake up. Dimly aware that its saturday and there are two days before POPL I decide to make a plan for the day. The plan is pretty simple. Study Compilers after lunch, Study networks after compilers, play bf2 after dinner. After all I say, I read harry potter in six hours, why cant I read the 100-200 pages in compilers one and a half.

1400 hrs
Its after lunch. I start again with compilers. After successfully reading the ppt on Runtime I decide to take a break. A small break. So I start watching some chess games.

1800 hrs
Still watching chess games. Saw an amazing game between Fischer and D.Bryne. Fischer destroyed Bryne, and he was only 13. Another brilliant game between Kasparov and Karpov. Of course the schedule had gone down the drain so I modify it, decide to scrap networks from the schedule.

2100 hrs
Find out that people would rather study than go play bf2. Extremely pissed at this point. Decide to actually read compilers. Reach slide 35 in Code Generation for the third time and give up.

2300 hrs
Me and shamanth doing bc. Then we goto bbc’s site to do some arbitrary surveys. Tipo had taken a survey on his brain’s sex (incidentally he found out that he preffered masculine women). Shamanth takes the same survey. I then take some three to four more surveys there. Notably amongst them I take a survey on art and it turns out that I like Abstract art.

That is Furiscio 2 by Rudolf Baguer.

I suck at identifying whether people have fake / genuine smiles.

Sunday 1 day before POPL

0930 hrs

Early in the morning (by my standards), after breakfast (a long time since I ate breakfast) I am surfing arbidly when at Vasan’s blog I find links to some more surveys. So I say, what the heck and decide to take them. A few million multiple choice questions later I have the following
