Dear ENEE 150 Students:

I wanted to welcome everyone to ENEE 150 before the semester gets going. I hope all of you have a productive semester, and in particular, get something out of ENEE 150. If you're receiving this email, then you are registered for ENEE 150. I look forward to seeing everyone in class on August 29th.

Dear ENEE 150 Students:

The TAs have setup their office hours tenatively:

Adam: Tuesdays 6:00pm, Fridays 11:00am
Trinish: Mondays 1:00pm, Wednesdays 1:00pm
Aditya: Thursdays 1:00pm, Fridays 12:00pm
Eddie: Mondays 2:00pm, Wednesdays 11:00am

As I mentioned, my office hours will be Tuesdays and Thursdays at 3:00pm. If there are any changes, I'll let you know. But for now, this is what we've settled upon. Office hours will start next week on Tuesday. The TA's office hours will be held in AVW 1442 (the same room as the recitations). My office hours are in AVW 1323 (my office).

regards, Don.

16 September 2017:
Adam's office hours were incorrectly listed on the course website as being on Friday at 12:00. They are actually on Friday at 11:00am. (He also has office hours on Tuesday at 6pm). This has now been corrected on the course web site.

27 September 2017:
Some of you are having trouble running your shell scripts for problem 2 in the homework. In addition to creating the script, the file you save it to must have executable privileges. If the file only has read or write privilege, it cannot be run as a script. The UNIX command "chmod" can be used to change the privileges on a file on linux.glue:

chmod 777

where is whatever file name you gave your script. "777" gives read, write, and execute privilege to the file, which will allow you to run the script.

3 October 2017:
Since we just had an exam and there are no assignments, I'm canceling my office hours for today. If you have to reach me about anything, please email me and we can setup another time.

10 October 2017:
I have posted the public test vectors for Project 2 on the course website (under the Project 2 Files hyperlink). There are 3 public test vectors this time. Please use these to help debug your project code.

13 October 2017:
I have just computed the early warning grades and have posted them. You should be able to see them soon (if not right now). The TAs will also post your midterm scores sometime tonight or tomorrow on ELMs.

If you have any questions on your standing in the class, please come by to talk to me.

15 October 2017:
Because of the project 2 due date next week, we will have some extra office hours. On Wednesday evening, the TAs will do 5-7pm. On Thursday, the due date for the project, I'll do 3-5. (You are welcome to come to my office before 3:00 if you want. If you come after 2:15 or 2:30, I probably won't turn you away). Then, Adam will do after 5:00. Best of luck on the project!

3 November 2017:
To help you with project 3, the TAs will hold extra office hours next week. On Monday, they will have office hours from 5-7, and on Tuesday, they will have office hours from 6 onwards.

30 November 2017:
The course evaluations for our 150 class are now open. You should have received an email about where on-line the evaluation can be completed. You have until December 12 to complete an on-line evaluation. I highly recommend that you do this so that we can get feedback on the course to improve it for future semesters.

4 December 2017:
I hope you all had a good weekend. Today, I will be holding my office hours from 5:30-6:30 PM instead of from 1:00-2:00PM as I usually do. I apologize for any inconvenience from this change. If you are unable to make the new time and were planning on coming in today, feel free to email me any questions as well.

7 December 2017:
To help you with Project 4, we will have extended office hours tomorrow, Friday, Dec. 8th. (Note, although Aditya is moving his office hours to 4:00, Adam has offered to cover Aditya's original office hours from 12-1).

11:00 - 1:00: Adam (AVW 1442)
3:00 - 4:00: Dr. Yeung (AVW 1323)
4:00 - ? : Aditya and Trinish (AVW 1442)
If there are any changes to the location, we will email the class.
