Senior Project: Day 9 & 10 / Lights, Curtain, Action!

I went into the UW on Saturday after rehersals to work on R2 for a few hours. When I got there, Andy and David were outside playing it. Unfortunatly, just before I had arrived, one of the power relays fried and had to be replaced. I replaced the relay and then called it a day.

Today I’ve been working on finishing up the final safety relays. The next task will be to supply 12volts to the GPS unit. And then hopefully I can start writting code tomorrow.

We start our short four day run of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying today. The show runs the next four days @ 7pm. Tickets for today and tomorrow are not quite sold out yet, so there is still time to come!!

What a day! / Senior Project: Day 1

Wow. This was one heck of a Tuesday. Starting at about 3, we starting receiving quite a bit of hail. And then the wind kicked up. We lost power at about 6ish. I went to go get my tux and I had to take 2 different detours because of trees falling and blocking the entire roadway. I was able to get my tux from the Mens Warehouse, and I have to say that the service I received was exceptionally excellent. The person helping me, Richard, was very helpful. They defiantly have will have my business again. So yea, tux is done, that just leaves corsage and transportation. So back is the power outage. I arrived home at about 8:30 to find that we didn’t have any power. The first thing I thought was Hmmm, fun. Then I realized AAAAhhhhhh no TV!!! I can’t watch 24! But if any of you know me, I usually don’t take no for an answer…at least the first time. So I hooked the inverter up to the van and ran an extension cord from the front of the house where the car was to the back of the house where the TV was. I plugged the TV and DirecTV receiver into the cord turned them on. And voila! It worked! So I got to watch the last 40 minutes of 24 and that was cool.

Now for the Senior Project. As part of the Senior Project, I am required to keep some sort of log of my work. I thought this would be a good spot to keep it. So here goes! This was the first day of my Senior Project. I arrived at about 8:30 and waited for a little while. I had neglected to find out what time Andy was getting there, so I headed up to UPC for about 45 minutes. When I returned about 10:30, I found Andy in his office. He outlined the plan for the next few days and then I got started. Today I was moving some of the work benches around to make the room more efficient. I also started working on assembling the server rack. I left at 12:30 to go to ballet at school.
