12/07 Final marks have now been submitted. You can find your result using classrun -sturec. Nothing is official till the uni sends you your results in the mail but the marks are unlikely to change. Well done everyone. It was a pleasure to mark your exams. Exam performance was generally excellent across the board, for all students Pass to HD. You must have good study technique! FYI in the joint questions you averaged 50% higher than 1011 students did, which was then our scaling measure. Less than 5% of students violated abstraction in the final question, which is by far the best performance i've ever had on ADTs and interfaces. All the best in comp1B. I'm looking forward to seeing you all again in third year if not sooner. 12/07 Congratualtions to Ben Kuo and Toby Hetherington who topped the subject with perfect scores of 100. 12/07 I've written a subject postmortem. If you are interested keep your eyes on this site as i'll post it up once i get the printed feedback forms back from the scanning centre and i've discussed them with the tutors. If you have any further comments or suggestions you for future offerings of 1711 I would love to hear them so please do pass them on. 21/06 I've just sent you all a final email so check email out sometime today if you get the chance. All the best in the exam! 10/06 Revision lecture today at 3pm CLB1 if you are interested. You don't NEED to come - it's just for anyone who still has difficulties with some part of the subject. It will just run as long as we have questions, but no later than 4:30/5:00 as i have the final 1711 tutor meeting then (where we do the subject postmortem). 07/06 The Beauty Pagent is now running! See the (amazing) entries below. Well done all! 27/05 The changes to the style marking announced in lectures are now in the project spec on the wiki. Check out the new sample marking page. 26/05 Tutes and labs up now (thanks again to kate). Note the debate, and the project marking. 26/05 It looks like all students who participated in Monday's race got spotted-out. So the for-marks earlybird races are as follows: TUESDAY WEDNESDAY FRIDAY SATURDAY non-marks races will still run on the other nights for your testing pleasure. Spot resolution will be active by friday night - and then you can all get busy clearing the spots from your name! I'll put up a more useful unit test stub tonight so you can see more details about the errors in the spots. See the link to the race results below. Have fun! 19/05 The world's earliest tute and lab questions are out (thanks to my wife kate for picking the chilren up from school and letting me work through). RSA question still to come. 19/05 This week's solutionss now available. Note the use of the higher order fold function. 17/05 Provisional exam timetable now out. See link below. 17/05 Optional lecture tomorrow is a ProjectFest. Q&A and team meetings. Forum to see details or to add details for your team's meeting. 29/04 **************************************************** C O N G A T U L A T I O N S Tue14-bugle ! ! ! **************************************************** You have cracked the Black network and escaped from the Village. A magnificent effort. Well done! 28/04 Extension lecture next week is a revision of today's lectures - for those who had to miss today due to the accounting exam or the VSU rally etc. Best of luck to all in the physics midession this weekend. 28/04 Week 8 tutorial & lab solutions now available. 27/04 Extension lecture today is on searching (cont), sorting (advanced), and some advanced complexity calculations. 24/04 Packet recall notice: If you downloaded your black packets between midnight and 2:30am last night please download them again as there is a slight chance they were incorrect (now fixed). However all students who *submitted* black packets before 2:30am don't have to do this - david has checked by hand that none of the packets you downloaded were affected by the error. 23/04 Black network now running. We'll list the tutorial groups by the order in which they complete it. All groups which complete it will get some marks for it. 23/04 Congrats to uber-crackers: 4 brownie points Toby Hetherington 3 brownie points Ben Nai-Jung Kuo Min'An Tan Benjamin Kalman who cracked Yellow on their own. A superb effort! Well done all of you. We'll leave Yellow open for your practise and pleasure for the duration of the task (for one brownie point). 21/04 I've added a more clear explanation of the problem i've seen people having with polyMod/crc32 in forum posts to the end of the week07 lecture notes. 21/04 Thanks everyone for being so nice when the girls came to the lecture today. Don't forget we'll be opening the Black Network saturday midnight. Check out your private tutorial forum. 18/04 Yellow network comp is now open. Follow the link from the "bonus mission" section of the task2 spec. Have fun! The clock is ticking... 16/04 Yellow packets released tuesday week 7, yellow comp closes midnight Saturday week 7. 16/04 Next extension lecture will be on Algorithms:Searching and will refer to task1. Impossible programs will have to wait a few weeks. 11/04 No extension lecture this week - next will be impossible programs, paradoxes, and fun puzzles. A bit of light relief. In week 7. We'll also do a bit more of security. 09/04 We'll explain CRC calculations in your tutes this week. So you don't need to worry about preparing the CRC16 lab question unless you want to. 08/04 The beta version of the Task 2 spec is now available. The presentation topic for tutorials next week is to explain the assignment to your tutorial group. Explain what people have to do and answer questions as best you can. As preparation do the first 3 steps of "getting started" section of the spec. All students - it's the other big lab this week. Make sure you prepare in advance. 07/04 Week05 tute and lab sample solutions now available. 07/04 Those in David's tute should congratulate him when he gets back next week from the ACM programming comp. His team (the unsw team) came 57th, beating MIT and just being pipped by CMU. They came first in the south pacific region. It would be interesting to know about his style under pressure... Well done David! (ps i've linked the questions below - give them a try!) 07/04 As requested the extension lecture next week is on the impossible program; and the most amazing book "Godel, Escher, Bach". I'll also finish off the talk about mitnick we started this week. 07/04 I've added new forum user as requested Member Name: HoshiKuzu Member Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Member Password: ***** please change your email address to the correct one when you first log in. 05/04 I'm planning to run an extension lecture tomorrow on something like the history of crypto/security/hacking (exact topic to be decided when i get a chance to write the lecture) As always, check back here at the StopPress tomorrow before coming to the lecture for any late breaking news. 03/04 Week 5 tute and lab exercises now available. 28/03 Week 04 solutions now available. Have a great break! Remember to check back here shortly before week 5 to see the week05 tute and lab exercises. 23/03 No extension lecture today due to illness. 22/03 Task one due date pushed back till 10:30am on Monday to allow submissions from the labs. Don't rely on cutting it this close tho - the adversary will no doubt ensure that the labs open late or the uni has a blackout that day... 22/03 Actually the extension lecture looks like it will be cancelled (or postponed to a lter week at least) as i'm got a head cold i need to shake for the official lectures. i'll post final decision here tomorrow morning. 21/03 Extension lecture this week will be on some of the early famous hackers and hacker trackers. It won't be a lecture on how to hack (!) as some have requested - but i will talk about some of the clever things they did. I may even show a bit of a dvd or two. 21/03 All Tute and lab questions now posted. This morning I added exercise 1 to the lab. The exercises this week should be helpful for task 1 and task 2 but will need some preparation before your tute & lab if you wish to complete them in time. 17/03 Week 4 presentation and (draft) tute exercises now available. Andy Lau - your forum name is AndyLau, your password is the one we agreed, written twice with no spaces between them. mail email@example.com if you have troubles with this. cheers r 16/03 Week 3 Tute and lab solutions now available. 15/03 Extension lecture tomorrow is ON. Alan Turing & AI and referential transparency. Be there or be somewhere else. 15/03 Any early birds from yesterday who have the files untouched in their unix accounts ready for submission yesterday but who didn't submit before the deadline mail us ASAP and give the files NOW. Deadline today only. 14/03 More BookData modules from students on the wiki. Tutes and labs for week 3 now up. 13/03 UnitTest and Reader stub modules now available. One more web book available to play with online. Post links to your own BookData test modules on the wiki. 04/03 Compsoc is running Lab 0 today for comp 1011 students. You are welcome to come too if you are interested. Lab 0 is in the Mechanical Engineering undercroft in the labs opposite the help desk. Lab 0 is an introduction to Linux and our labs. We will be covering this in your first lab next week but if you like you can do some advance prep by attending it. 24/02 I met some students at the O-week "welcome to computing" lecture. Some seemed worried about choosing higher or normal computing, my advice: (1) be bold! you can easily swap to normal in weeks one or two if you don't like it (2) you should attend lectures for both subjects in the first week to see what they are both like. The slides from the lecture are linked below if you want to check out some of the web/email addresses mentioned. 21/02 Tutorials don't start until week 2. The wed11-1 lectures don't run in week 1. Your first encounter with 1711 in week 1 will be the wednesday 1pm lecture in EELG1. Any queries email firstname.lastname@example.org 04/02 The question most likely on your mind is "should i do 1011 or 1711?" Firstly note you can change freely between them (subject to the 1711 class size limit) in the first few weeks. So this is not a critical decision before uni starts. However to help you i've put up an info page on the differences between them. To get a feel for 1711 check out our 2004 or 2003 websites (links below) they are a fair indication for the flavour of the subject. We DONT assume you have done any computing already for 1011 or 1711. There is no extra credit for doing 1711, the uni regards the subjects as interchangable. We do extra work in 1711. You'd be mad to do 1711. That said - it's a lot of fun. If you have a high maths mark you SHOULD do 1711 (that seems to be a good indicator of computing aptitude for many students). If you don't have a high maths mark you are still welcome to do higher if you are feeling enthusiastic. BUT if you don't have a high maths mark you need to print out and sign the form "transferring INTO 1711" (see link below) and hand it in at the CSE school office (ground floor of the K17 building) 04/02 Check this "stopPress" page regularly as all subject information will be posted here. This site will be updated frequently (including before session commences). Make sure you check back here before week 1 for more information about what you need to do in week 1, and answers to any frequently asked questions. 04/02 In some weeks we will run an optional extension lecture wed 11-12 this is just for fun/interest, and in some weeks we will have a revision/remedial lecture wed 12-1. If you can you should try to arrange your timetable to leave those times free. 04/02 Welcome to comp1711!
Should I do 1011 or 1337?
