My third exam, in Advanced Computer Archtiecture, is now over. As is the standard reaction, people ask how you did, and I respond. Lately, I've found I have a penchant for citing my opinions on these questions by mangling quotes by famous people or from famous literatry sources. Tonight, I turn to the words of former American counter-terrorism czar, Richard Clarke.
Your five years of computer science courses failed you. The lessons in Advanced Computer Archtiecture have failed you. And I have failed you. I tried hard... but that doesn't matter, because I have failed. And for that failure, I would ask... for your understanding and your forgiveness
Seriously, it probably wasn't that bad, but I really needed to do great. It's all in Crazy Ivan's hands now. We'll just have to wait and see. :-/
