Dissertation deadline looming

It seems that all I am currently doing is writing up my dissertation and nothing else. I have spent the last week in the Techno Cafe in the Engineering Building. It’s a nice room to work in with little booths, laptops, tablets, smartboards and lots of spare network sockets and power to plug into. It has been my home from 9am – 5pm each day and has allowed me to actually get some work done.

I have now (i think) finished coding the system. Any further implementation just wont happen because I don’t have the time to finish the writeup as well as implement more stuff before 4:00pm tomorrow!

I have written chapter 1, most of chapter 3 and chapter 4. This does leave me with a Literature Survey which I am finding it increasingly hard to find anything useful for; a results/testing report and then conclusion and further work.

Once those are all written I still need to compile the whole report and hope that Microsoft Word doesnt want to fuck me about because that would possisbly be the most irritating thing possible.

For anyone who is interested in trying out the code feel free to download http://www.matthewjwhite.co.uk/dissertation/Dissertation.exe by default it extracts to c:Program Filesdissertation and then it runs Javaw -jar Dissertation.jar but feel free to do this however you feel. Don’t try to run it on a PDA because at the moment it is just raping memory and I have had errors throughout testing but it does run fine on my desktop machine.

Right – back to writing up the project – I will however post a pdf with all the writeup in it for you to read
