For 8/22/11

Finished the presentation today without Matt. As much as I want to, me and Matt can't practice our presentation because he won't be here until the day of the presentation so that's not good. But at least I'm done so that feels great. Today the janitors had to clean my room so on the day Matt isn't here I had to go and pack up all of the equipment and move it out of the room which was not fun at all. At least Dan helped me out so it wasn't as bad. Only a few days left, kind of hard to believe. TTFN

For 8/19/11

We have almost finished the presentation, we have spent a lot of time researching different facts about our project to make sure that we are ready for the questions and that we know what we're talking about. plugin still refuses to work so we are just going to focus on the presentation for the rest of the internship. We also can't forget to finish the wiki before the summer is done. That's all for this post.

For 8/18/11

Matt came back today so we did a lot of work on the presentation today. It's starting to look very good, and it will be done in time so that's good. Today Jake was actually here so we were able to have several people work on getting the plugin and make the files for the DLE and the DME work with it. Unfortunately it still didn't work. So at least I know the problem wasn't my intelligence. So tomorrow I'm just going to work on the presentation. until tomorrow.

For 8/17/11

Today was completely devoted to doing my blog and the wiki that no one does. The wiki will be one huge update next week and the blog is a working process. The updates for the DSE didn't work. The first time this summer the files didn't work causes me problems for me because the DSE is all black now. We will use the old files for the demo today and try to see why the new ones are not working . Need to do the final inflation of the Ball and strap it down to the stand today before I leave work. Also need to make that I leave the door open so Brandon can use the room tonight. Well I'm done here

For 8/16/11

Today Matt isn't here so I decided to to tackle trying to get the DSE updated and to try to get the Google Chrome plugin to work with the DME and DLE files. The theme of today turned into trying things and trying things and trying things and it doesn't work. Got very frustrating after a few hours. So after I gave up for the day I set up the DSE to be shown off tomorrow to a few visitors. Will do the finally adjustments tomorrow before I leave work, See ya.

For 8/15/11

Today was a slow day. Me and Matt got back to a normal day of just working on the computer. No walking on roofs, playing cards, hanging out in other labs, feild trips, or tracking across the campus to do stuff. Just sitting in insight, working on the computer. Nothing much to say here just worked on the presentation. Matt's not going to be here for the next few days so I'm going to be working solo. Hope I can stay focused. See ya tomorrow.

For 8/12/11

      Today just about all of the college students had to go to the research symposium make a presentation. The high school interns had to attened the events and support the undergrads. So in the morning me and Matt just hung out with the other interns and talked about the presentations that we would be attending. We went to Java Wally's to have a cookie, a few drinks and to talk about the day.

      Me, Matt, and Alex left early to go to the presentation that we wanted to go to. The problem was that on the paper that we had the rooms were labeled one, two, three, four. The rooms were actually numbered 2170 and 2130, so it took much longer to find the room we were looking for. By the time we found the room that we were suppose to be in, we were ten minutes late so we didn't go in until it was over. I stayed for lunch because it was free. They had some pretty good Asian cuisine for lunch and the keynote speaker was interesting as well. He talked about how to make a small self made computer program and turn it in to a successful company like what he (John Resig) did with jQuery.

     After I got back I went to the insight lab to get to work when I found out there was a bunch of interns on the roof. It's been awhile since I've on the roof, (a year or so) so clearly that was where the party was at.

This is what the roof looks like

Well this has been nice but I got to go.
