HalloweenPosted: October 31, 2002
Today is Halloween ! Everyones dressed up in neat costumes. I think I even
noticed Cleopatra on Capmus. Jasons there too, so are the Pirates. Yesterday,
I turned in my paper and I should say it is still in draft stages.
I think I aimed too high and the paper turned out to be quite a mess of ideas.
I am worried about the grade I might get on the paper. I hope it will be fine.
I have a lot to do this weekend (again !!!).
I will be investigating the use of Bayesian Networks to filter spam.
Paul Graham has an excellent article on the same topic.
Good to see that Microsoft research is being rivalled in the Open Source
Paul Grahams work has also been implemented.
The STARE web page needs a lot of work too.
On Monday I maybe initiated as a proper research assistant and STARE might
get a lot of exposure with the higher levels in RIT. I also have to build a specification for
Distributed Systems Project # 3 and on similar lines a client plugin for Outlook(TOP SECRET).
It was a tough week thus, I just about managed to submit the paper. Two days
of not having slept is now catching up with me, I do feel really washed out
and relieved that the weekend is near. I need to Plan more meticulously.
Things probably won’t fall apart so easily then. Maybe I get the feeling that
I am overcommitting myself.
