Midterms and Lab III opening ceremony

Performance was crap. Almost failed Multivar Calc, and got C+ in Physics. CS was ok however, still waiting for results. The only relief was that my scores were at the class average or better... Well yes I am working on pulling them grades up, let's see what happens.

Read up on the front-page news here -
[That's where I work :-D ]

Here's some pictures of the lobby I took last night-

Working in a Lab

So I am one of the lucky few freshmen here who actually have a job - and an exciting one at that! I work at the Behavioural and Social Sciences Lab (yeah yeah), developing software and experiments for the awesome eye-tracker there. Now my transponder has been reprogrammed and I can open lab doors like in Mission:Impossible.. so yesterday I went to the Lab and took some photos. Here they are !

So... Friday night once again... I decided to post some photos. I'll begin with photos of my meeting with Tobias, from my host family, and his friend Tim. We spent hours together, building miniature mutants out of Warhammer kits. Later we went to Mama Leone's Pizzeria, an authentic Italian restaurant, and had some - yeah, pizza.

So here goes the photos.. you can click them for original size.

Me and Tobias.
That's my newly renovated room.. after a major overhaul last week.
Another view of my room.
Streets of Bremen.. during the evening.
Tobias in his backyard.
Tim, me and Tobias.
Ammar (my EE lab partner) taking measurements. Today the EE lab module ended (for this semseter).
Awesome digital oscilloscope that we use.
The circuit. It was an op-amp differentiator.
An artistic view of the Workbench.
My bicycle on a sunset background.. taken while returning from Research I, where the EE lab is. It's an awesome sports bike, gifted by my host family. Has speedometer, distance meter, 5 gears, 3 grips etc.etc.

So that's about it for now. More photos and another post will come soon. :-)
