What did you do this past week?

Most of my week was spent trying to get Darwin to work. Many hours were spent debugging and trying to optimize the code. I also studied for a chemistry exam that Wednesday.

What’s in your way?

Not too much is in my way, I just need to do my weekly assignments for my classes and get a head start on upcoming projects and tests.

What will you do next week?

I plan on getting ahead on schoolwork this week so that I can free up plenty of time for project 5 as well as projects in my other classes. As long as I spend some time doing work every day, this week should not be too tough. Since I should have some extra time, I plan on getting outside and being more active. I’ve barely left my room this week so I will make an effort to go out and skate or something.

What was your experience of r-value references and move semantics?

Before this week, I knew the difference between l and r-values, but I had never learned anything about move semantics. I thought this week’s classes were interesting, albeit a little confusing with all the specific syntax. I’ll be sure to look over the notes and get everything down.

What made you happy this week?

I moved back to Austin this week, as much as I love my family, it makes me happy to be out on my own again. Also, the new ESPN documentary on the Chicago Bulls starts airing tonight so I’m excited about watching that. Apparently they had a film crew that followed the Bulls during Michael Jordan’s and Phil Jackson’s last year in Chicago, which should be really interesting.

What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week?

My pick of the week is the Dolphin Gamecube emulator. The developers of this emulator have put in a ton of work to allow you to emulate any Gamecube game you want with minimal latency and good graphics. I play a lot of Super Smash Bros Melee and it’s super easy and convenient to play it on my laptop. The emulator even has the ability for peer-to-peer netplay so that you can play against others online.
