A number of people are whining about TMA04 and how difficult it is, especially as the course is only worth 20 points. Perhaps they should take the following into consideration:

  1. The overall workload for the course has been very easy.
  2. This is a level 2 course not a level 1 course.
  3. The cut-off date for the TMA is the 18.May.06, but we have had access to the TMA since 22.Dec.05. Surely that’s plenty of time to complete the TMA.
  4. Everything that is needed for the TMA has been covered within the supplied course text.

For anyone still experiencing problems re-read Unit 9, especially section 8.

Is TMA04 still based around the Films4U scenario as it was when I did it in 2000?

No. This time we have to develope a simple FTP system, both client (command line and GUI interface)and server.
