My word ...

Has anybody attempted the last question in the 4th assignment, it deals with a fully synchronised stack with guarded suspension. I have implemented the stack just how they have explained in the textbook example (difference is that they explain it with a queue). My stack however is not functioning so well, continually getting array index out of bounds exceptions (implemented array-based stack). I must say that the other assignments for this subject were quite a joke compared to this one, pretty crazy to leave all this in-depth subject matter until right at the end.

I think it would be crazy to tackle this module without first having done data structures (COS211) or at least doing them concurrently.

Yeh this assignment is very challenging. It is good to have such a difficult assignment because your skills will definitely be stretched.

Although I'm saying its good for it to be so difficult doesn't mean I can actually do it. Lucky I submitted all the other assignments tongue sticking out smiley

You know what the most fantastic thing is? (note the hint of sarcasm) Its that this assignment is compulsory for exam entrance.

It remains to be seen whether or not this holds with the new ruling on examination admission.
If it does hold, I'll be re-doing COS214 next year. I have just got too many projects going on at work to spend time on this now.

When I look at the amount of work, I'll never be finished in time. I only completed the chapter 7 exercises and got a major shock to reality when I saw the rest.....I have 124 credits though.....

I have also only done the first 3 assignments, and I have more than 100 credits. Hoping I can get into exams without the 4th assignment.

I am correct when I say that we still have tomorrow to hand in, right?


I have skimped on some of the stuff that seemed like a lot of effort that didn't have any direct relation to the actual work that was being tested, 7-2 and 7-6 for example. (I will gloss over those tonight.)

I did spend a lot of time on threading, probably because I find it so damn interesting...

And I'm still waiting for my Ass 3 results, so I don't know what my year mark situation is. (Should be fine - 83 credits without ass 3.)

Good luck to all who are planning an all nighter tonight.

The target date for the assignment is tomorrow, so yes, you can do it on MyUnisa till just before midnight. Another idea is that you hand it in at 1 of the Unisa post boxes which they will only empty on Monday morning anyway, so you can buy some time that way.....

Do you mean midnight tonight or tomorrow? My understanding is that we are still allowed to hand in until midnight tomorrow evening?

Ummm, I submitted my assignment last night after deciding that I'd had enough of it and was happy with my attempt ... I just checked myUNISA out of interest now and I see that the status for this assignment is 'Closed' where usually it would say 'Resubmit' after an assignment was submitted, I hope I'm seeing things ...

No you're not seeing things...I mean you are but what you see is real!

After their "upgrade", things have changed a lot.

If you check the time of this post, you will see I was looking for some more info on how to do the questions. Q 7.2, 8.2, and a bit of 11.3 is all I have left to do.

Maybe I'll just submit whatever I can do and then no more assignments for the year is left smileys with beer

Yep, I've also just submitted my very last assignment for the year.

Good luck with sorting out the last questions. Have a beer on me when you're done. And then some tequila...

Re: My word ...
August 04, 2007 02:20PM
That was also my final assignment for the year but after last night's endeavours, I won't be drinking tequila for a long, long time ... tongue sticking out smiley
