After the course is over....

Well I know I will be using my pocket PC, I used it for directions, for weather, for scheduling, and for playing games in class. The Pocket PC is ideal for getting organized, I mean you can keep everything in it, and evenutally we will rely on it more. Once we have more things to do, because right now we are college students without many cares in the world, but eventually in the real world we need to stay organized to be effiecient, and having a pocket PC to stay orgranized is perfect. I do use it alot for games, especially chess, and second to that is scheduling, but other than that I will be using it for presentations and such. It was a good investment, the Pocket PC and the class, I learned alot. So many other students have had trouble doing basic things with their PCs, I thought they were joking when some of my friends asked me for help. This class did pay off, and now I don't have to go to the bookstore to return an IT book for 50% of its price, they suck. I will be using my pocket PC in the future.

Pocket PC Usefulness

Well I used my Pocket PC for many things besides for class. It came in handy for mapquest especially, I save the directions on my pocket PC and then use them in my car when I go places, works great, especially at night because of the backlit LCD. I also use my Pocket PC for the weather, I keep the Axim connected to my PC all the time so it syncs regularly, it works out well. At first I used my pocket PC alot for scheduling because I had trouble remembering my schedule. My pocket PC also came in handy when I did my GB 101 presentation, I loaded all my notes on to the Pocket PC and read off of it, I looked very professional. My pocket PC has been useful and I will continue to use it.

Programming was awful, I thought excel was bad, this was beyond that. In excel the formulas were tough to formulate, but I did understand them when I got them. With Programming I was a bit lost, that didn't help but I did figure it out to make my Car game work. The pleasure I got out making my game work was awesome, it felt good, because I was working on my game till 4 in the morning trying to debug it, and when I finally got it, it was great. Programming is tough, takes alot of time, alot of patience, and alot of work. I used to take it for granted the sweat that went into developing software, this helps the ethics in buying software, because I know what went into making the software work, I will be less likely to pirate. Programming was a good section, a good way to finish the course, I learned something and thats what matters.

Paint Calculator

I tried my best to get the paint calculator working, but unfortunatley I failed. At first, I was one of the few who filled the whole room with paint, once i figured that was wrong, i revised my work. I did set up the paint calculator and made the calculations, but it seemed I was missing a few crucial pieces to make the calculator work. The form showed no build errors at one point, and when I tried launching it, it did not work. I spent about 2-3 hours just trying to make the calculations work, but all the effort yielded not much progress. In the end I quit, without a working pain calculator. If i just got it to work, it would have been great, I mean when I got the tip calculator working, and that felt great. But unfortunatly, i failed at the paint calculator.
