What’s After the First?

…Second. And third and fourth and fifth. Yes, fifth. By some whatever-twist-of-fate (haha) the 10 required games were reduced to five. wooot. XD Now I hope that makes our work less difficult.

We have to play Wii.  We have to see some similarities among the games with regards to the manipulation of the game area, and the controls.  We have to see if there is some sort of standard that we have to incorporate with the games we are designing.

However, we do not have the console.  It is also difficult to download an emulator.  Some sites which offer one require a Core 2 Duo processor and a 2 GB of RAM.  Other sites argue that there is no such thing as Wii emulator, even for Windows.  So I think, we have to borrow from someone, instead… Or rent?  Also, working in the lab, some sites are forbidden so that even videos of persons playing with Wii cannot be viewed.  We can something about this one, though.  One of us has internet access at home so he can watch the videos himself and share with us what they contain.  Or we can just visit an internet café.

Ubuntu, Internet.. Where art thou?

It was the night that we were all waiting for – thesis making at JRDC with WeRoam by our side.  We were finally able to borrow the WeRoam from Dr. Caro and according to the advertisement made by one of his colleagues as were testing it back at the ITTC, its signal was flawless even if the user was up on the mountains.  But when we were already using it, the signal apparently struggled through the confines of JRDC.  We had to employ the round-robin scheme in order for us to access the internet or else we would just be sharing the single bandwidth we had.

SONA: State Of Never-ending Apprehension

leave a comment »

It was Monday.  While everyone was at their homes expecting the State o f the Nation Address of President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, we were at the WSG lab in the state of never-ending apprehension.  The reported bomb scare within the school did not bother us at all, it was more frightening to present nothing to Dr. Caro the next day.

Wiiiiiiii…! Here They Are!

Gaussian elimination, lower triangular matrix, M1M2 must be equal to M2M1… In the middle of this CS131 lecture, my thesis partner’s phone beeped.

“Punta na kayo rito. 2pm daw presentation. Aalis kc si Sir Caro. ”

The message came from another one of Sir Caro’s advisees. We were actually scheduled to present our review of related literature today at 2:30pm. It was pure bliss that at last I have a reason to get out from the class earlier. Yet, I still found it rather impolite to just walk out from the room together with my partner. After gathering our guts, we finally managed to sneak out from the room and sprint upstairs back to WSG lab.

And TADAAH!!!
