26/8  Timeedit unreliable?
 

For this course you have access to the schedule from the menu to left. A small "rescue" if you need timedit for other courses is the mobile phone version (works on computer too):

12/8  STONE (Simple Tool for ONline Education)
 

During the first weeks your task is to learn how to handle our computer system running Solaris 5.10. The most important things for you to learn is how to:

  • type fast on swedish keyboard layout
  • use textual commands to control the computer
  • NOT rely on graphichal point and click programs
  • start a "command shell" also known as a "terminal"
  • use the shell to navigate and control your files
  • use the shell to start and stop programs
  • use emacs, a powerful tool to edit text files and more...
  • use the "man" command to find documentation/manuals

As you can understand this all requires A LOT of actual practice.

STONE contain introduction material to those tasks and small quizzes to test yourself (and get credit). The information in STONE is available through the "STONE Reference" link in the menu. To do quizzes you need to login with a password. Students registered on time get login information automatically. For late students login information will be generated when it suits us. (Expect a delay of 10 working days.)


12/8  Course start 2011
 

The first lecture take place Monday 29/8 08:00 in R43 with course information, introduction to programming and information regarding introduction to our computer environment. It is very important to be both registered to the course and have your computer username and password ready before the first lab session. Else you can not use our computers.


12/8  Course homepage 2011
 

Pay attention to the year when you visit the course homepage. The pages of previous years are kept for your reference. It allows you (and me) to view the pages and information valid for your year later on. The only drawback is that you may slip away to a previous year, or end up there after a search, without noticing. Pay attention!
