All this Networking and Windows Programming and Theory of Computation and Graphics is getting too frustrating. Endsems start 2nd Jan, end on the 9th. Therefore, my next post will be after that. Hope everyone has a great New Year. Back to 802.3, 802.4, 802.5......

Finally had the Windows Programming Test today. Some blokes in our class kept postponing it for days, and it's really irritating because your schedule is all messed up because of that. Didn't do as well as I expected, but it was decent. It was good that we had the test - not because I wanted marks, but because atleast I sat and studied what the Windows API was all about. Having attempted at making my own Windowing library, getting to know what the real Windows is like is pretty cool.

My Windowing library - ah, it brings back old memories when I was in school. Sameer, my project partner used to sit around going, "naah - I think the class implementation was better if we did that". And I wrote the whole damn thing out. Helped me a lot - I must say. It helped me in get my 4GB hard disk - I have reason to believe the old one crashed because of the 100 reboots I used to subject my computer through under the name of "Video Memory Research". But the one thing I've learnt most from WinGUI is not the graphics, but about the sheer power of Open Source.
