I had such a crap day today.
It started with a lousy night's sleep. Then I actually managed to extract myself from bed at 6am (for a change) and go to the gym. This left me in a totally shagged state for the rest of the day.
I got the results for the first assignment for COMP2400 back. I got 37 out of 60, after losing 10 marks because I put exit at the end of each SQL file. I'm rather pissed off about this, because the assignment specification didn't state how the assignment would be run for marking purposes. I did my testing by going sqlplus / @filename.sql and I wanted to be returned to a shell prompt after running the query. Of course, the bulk marking tried to run them all in batch, and mine exited after the first query, requiring the marker to edit all 10 files to comment out the exit, hence the mark deduction.
I'm also annoyed at myself because some of the queries weren't logically correct. I should have known better. I know SQL. I've been doing it for years. Granted, I don't usually join a table on itself 6 times to answer a question, but hey, I had higher expectations for my results.
Moving right along to Maths, the results were back (already) for the mid-semester. I wasn't expecting to do anything spectacular, but I also wasn't expecting to pass by 1 mark either. At least it was a pass I guess...
The one highlight of the day was the result for the Finance mid-semester: 21 out of 26, or 78%. Given I was contemplating not sitting the exam, I'm pleased with the outcome, and I'm pleased that I did.
So now I just have the COMP1110 mid-semester on Wednesday evening, and the COMP1110 assignment due on Friday as immediate concerns. I dare say the third COMP1110 assignment is going to be released before the break, and so that'll leave me with three assignments to work on over the mid-semester break. Oh joy, oh glee.
