- Zip of all slides used
in the semester are now available on the resources page as a study aid
to you. Of course there were some lectures done primarily on the board
so you'll want to refer to your notes as well.
- Midterm Study files are now on the resources page.
Feb 13th at about 6:15pm the power went off on parts of the campus
including Hart hall. Several servers were brought down by this crash
including webhost and csdev01. These servers did not return until after
midnight. Given that many students
had a lab due at midnight and were unable to work on said lab for the
last 6 hours of the assigned time. I am extending the due date by 24
hours. All students who had their lab due Feb 13th at 11:59pm can now
turn it in by 11:59pm Feb14th with no penalty.
For those who would like a program to connect (with graphical windows)
to csdev01 from home. I've heard good things about Xming. You can get a
copy from this page. You will want the xming and xming-fonts packages for a complete experience.
If you don't have a copy of puTTY the program to make the actual connection, you can get one from here
- Penn State has a nice description of setting up xming and installing it. Once you've completed the instillation, you should stop reading, they use a different connection than putty.
you are ready to run xming, choose the xlaunch program and run it.
Simply keep pressing next with all of the default options untill you
finally finish and get a little X icon down in your system tray.
this point you are ready to run putty. (Make sure that Xming is running
*before* you begin this configuration) the first thing that will
come up is the putty configuration screen. Use the scroll bar on the
side (if you needto) to get down to the ssh option in the tree control
on the left. Click on the '+' icon there and then select the X11 item
as in this picture from Penn State:
- The checkbox labled Enable X11 forwarding is not checked by default, check it.
use the scroll bar to go back up to the top of the tree control again
and select "sessions". You'll see the configuration that comes up when
you first opened putty, the same one seen in this image from the
universty of Wisconson below:
- In the host name box type csdev01.bridgew.edu
give this session a session name (maybe csdev01) in the saved Sessions
box and then push save. Now you shouldn't have to do this config again.
Just select your saved session and press open.
- You might
get the dialog about not knowing if this is really csdev01 since this
is the first time you have connected from your home machine. Just say
yes and continue of you do.
- Now you will get a back
window thats prompts you for your login username. This is your plain
username (you do not need the @csdev01.bridgew.edu part that you used
in the cygwin/x lab stuff). Once you enter the username it will prompt
you for your password. Type in your csdev01 password and you will get
the csdev01 prompt and be ready to work.
- Welcome to the cs101 web page for Spring 2008. This is the spot that I
will post class updates that need to happen between lectures. Be
especially sure to check here if class is ever canceled.
