2005 - October, November,
21st I have been working on the Java and thinking about how the final
piece can utilise Java classes in its construction. I have also been
doing quite a bit of reading around the java3D packages and I hope to
get the swing of those over the next few weeks. Now I am starting to
look at Java and SQL which will be useful as I think about the building
of the data base. I hope to be able to develop a simple data base from
some of the details we already have from the previous video footage.
16th I am feeling a bit worse for wear this morning because I was
out last night with Marcus having a PhD drink together and catching
up and planning ideas for ppaper writing. We spent the whole evening
chatting and drinking and planning - very productive.
|11th I am struggling with copying the data from the HD belonging to Ken and mine - ah the difficulties of Mac/PC compatibility! But at least I can now log into the system on the Macs and the PCs which is a great relief. This afternoon I have a meeting with Tim about a proposal for a project which Eva is talking through with him - I don't really know much about it but I shall know more once I have been to the meeting.|
10th I have now settled into my office area and I have been developing my ideas for the project. Next week I have to present a diagram of where I think the work will be going and I would like to add a rough timescale to that.
On a domestic level I have found a nice little pad to live in at 47 Devonshire Ave so I think that will keep me happy for the next 6 months at least until I have got to know people in the area.
I spent this evening in the library going through the catalogue for all the interesting books they have on Java - also found some CDROM materials they have and a lot of electroinic stuff too. Well that is all going to keep me going for weeks I think.
