lazypowerMorning Everyone14:36
lazypowerLOL @ gentlemans C14:37
pvl1hm I can handle the course material methinks14:46
MutantTurkeywaltman: what was the motivation for that scale??15:04
InHisName1waltman: do some frosh not understand that a 49 is WAY better than a 00 ?   Maybe same letter, but much more damaging to the average.16:01
waltmanMutantTurkey: You'll have to ask Spiros. I didn't come up with it.20:17
waltmanBut if I had to guess, I'd say the motivation is that you can take everyone's scores and plug them into a spreadsheet, and it tells you what everyone's grade it.20:18
MutantTurkeyi mean like, why is 50% = C20:19
MutantTurkeyinstead of most schools where C = 73-76, C+ is 77-79, B- is 80-83 and so on20:20
waltmanbeats me. maybe because there are like 24 different ways to get points, and nearly impossible to get all of them.20:21
waltmannothing's worth a lot of points other than the final, but there are a LOT of things that are graded20:21
MutantTurkeyit's crazy the final is so much20:22
MutantTurkeyall my classes were like that too20:22
MutantTurkeyi wish it was more focused on your skills rather than mental lookup abilities. Giving assignments to me seems better than tests20:23
waltmanthe quizzes and finals are the only things we can be sure they worked on themselves20:23
MutantTurkeybecause you structure it that way20:23
MutantTurkeyjust make an in class 'test' assignment20:23
MutantTurkeyin the final lab20:23
waltmanI have to confess I'm appreciating the "easy to compute grades" thing after discovering I only had 48 hours after my final to submit the grades for 32 students.20:26
SamuraiAlbaGood bacon to all!20:28

SamuraiAlbaMuTu, how is everything?  Long tiome no see!20:33
waltmanI didn't know you could Cyanogenify the nook. Does it still do all the Nooky stuff after that?20:33
SamuraiAlbaBut I'm using a N2A card, so I can just pop it out and go back to Nook20:34
waltmanI have an e-ink Nook. I believe it can be rooted, but I'm not sure why I'd want to.20:59
rmg51waltman, I have two Nooks21:06
rmg51I never rooted either one21:06
rmg51never wanted to21:06
waltmanI wish they had a few text-friendly apps for it, something like instapaper.21:19
rmg51that is one reason to root it21:50
