CS371p Spring 2022 Week 10: Relena Lai

  1. What did you do this past week? I attended the Sophomore (Re)orientation on Friday. It was a quick presentation by Dr. Peterson to learn more about the CS department, the opportunities, and careers. It was a helpful session that was honestly very reassuring since she discussed issues like imposter syndrome and helped encourage us. For the rest of the week, I studied for my upcoming OS exam on Wednesday.
  2. What’s in your way? I’m stressed about the exam and definitely not confident, so fingers crossed. The new project introduced also seemed a little confusing, so I’m hoping I’ll be able to visit during office hours to help get started.
  3. What will you do next week? My exam is Wednesday evening! Afterward, I’ll hopefully have time to get started on project 4 and continue my work on Pintos.
  4. What did you think of Paper 10: Why getter and setter methods are evil? It was honestly pretty surprising, not that it didn’t make sense. Since I haven’t had to deal with object-oriented programming for a while, I haven’t given it much thought. However, I remember dealing with getter and setter methods quite a lot in my AP Computer Science course back in high school.
  5. What was your experience of std::vector, std::deque, std::list, and std::stack? They were a good review of these data structures albeit I’m still a little confused. I’ll have to rewatch the lectures before approaching project 4.
  6. What made you happy this week? My cat was spayed back in early March, and recently, her stomach had been swelling around the suture. I was afraid it could have been a hernia, but after visiting the vet, I learned that wasn’t the case and it was actually a common healing state. So I was very relieved to hear that.
  7. What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week? If you have a MacBook, I highly recommend installing BetterTouchTool. You may have to purchase a license, but it’s a one-time fee as long as you don’t care for the updates. You can add shortcuts with custom inputs.

Here are some of my favorites that I’ve added:

Ctrl ⌃ → S : Moves the current window to the next monitor.

Option (or Alt) ⌥ → Shift ⇧ → Left/Right : Splits the current window in half and aligns it to the corresponding side.

Option (or Alt) ⌥ → Shift ⇧ → Forward Slash / : Expands the window to the screen size (it doesn’t enter fullscreen)
