M301: TMA 04 - Results

Yesterday I got the results back for TMA04. According to my tutor TMA04 has proved to be the most difficult TMA to date, and he complimented me on a job well done. I dropped several marks for omissions in a couple of my answers, and lost a mark on the Statechart Diagram for not following the supplied specification, in the question, explicitly. Although this is my lowest TMA score so far for M301, my TMA average is still over 97%.

M301: TMA04 - Submitted

Submitted TMA04 yesterday afternoon. This has been a rather difficult TMA as a lot of the questions were very judgemental in how they were answered.

Although I am enjoying the course, it is a very hard slog with lots of information to digest.

A Useful Mac?

I have never been a fan of Mac's, too restrictive if you ask me. But I have now found a great use for the MacBook. See here.

I spent the weekend at Donington watching the British round of MotoGP. Although Danny Pedrosa won quite comfortably, the hero of the day was Valentino Rossi, starting 12th on the grid with a fractured wrist and ankle he managed to power his way through to 2nd place, and is now only 35 points behind championship leader Nicky Hayden.
