WHAT'S NEW?

All changes to this web site will be logged here in reverse chronological order:

  1. Jan. 4, 2003
    The final exam marks as well as the overall course grades have been posted on ePost (accessible from the GRADES page). As indicated in the POLICY page, if you need to look at your final exam paper, or to request a reappraisal / grade re-computation, you must wait until you receive the official grade from York by mail. Once you do, and within 3 weeks of receiving it, go to the Computer Science Dept Office (1003 CSEB) and make the request. Before that time, neither the department nor your professor have access to your final exam paper.
  2. Dec. 20, 2002
    Reappraisals of Test#2 were completed and posted. If you did hand in a reap form in time, you will see a new entry in your ePost report called T2REAP. The number shown in it (zero, positive or negative) will be added to your Test#2 mark. The papers can be picked up from the Advising Room when it re-opens for the Winter term.

    The final exam marks and the overall course grade will be posted on Jan 4, 2003.

    Reminder to look at the lab errata (linked to from the LINKS page) before starting any lab.
  20. Sept. 27, 2002
    Clarification re Lab deadlines: Lab #n can be eChecked until Sunday midnight at the end of week #(n+1).
  21. Sept. 27, 2002
    Several questions received by the Virtual TA involve the inability to eCheck a Lab (esp. #3) either because the two outputs are seen different or because of a password authentication failure. Rather than answering each question individually, this entry serves to remind you to read the LABS page, especially the eCheck notes at the bottom.
  22. Sept. 24, 2002
    If you submit to the Virtual TA a question that does not satisfy the cretieria listed in the HELP page, the question will be left un-answered. As a rule, if your question is still unanswered 5 days after receipt, it is because it doesn't meet the criteria (and it thus will not be answered.
  23. Sept. 24, 2002
    The person in the glass room (South side of Prism) on Sat/Sun is an advisor, and he cannot leave his or her desk to attend to students: you need to leave your station and go to the desk, perhaps brining a printout. This is not a problem on Sundays (because there is also a Roaming TA in Prism) but keep it in mind for Saturdays (no roaming).
  24. Sept. 22, 2002
    In order to verify you lab marks, use ePost (accessible from the GRADES page) and enter 1020 for the course; not 1020A or 1020B.
  25. Sept. 21, 2002
    Since not all students have access to the 2nd floor of CSB on weekends, we are moving the advising TA on Sat and Sun downstairs to the Prism Lab; specifically, to a glass room in the south side of the lab. This is effective Sunday the 22nd.
  26. Sept. 14, 2002
    TA support is available beginning Monday, Sept. 16 (note that even though there are no lectures on that day, the University is open and the TA's will be present). The support comes in three forms: The Advising Room, Roaming TA's, and the Virtual TA. See the HELP page for details.
  27. Sept. 10, 2002
    A link has been added today to the LINKS page. It points to a week-by-week recommended readings from two of the course references.
