It took a while…

But then it became clear to all of us: our professor is just trying to get our possible findings published! (And he is right too! ) Anyway, today we had the group-session in which the semi-definitive object became clearer. As an assignment for again a group session next week we are to fiddle about with several programs and some

Group sessions are ahead

Tomorrow is a big day in the seminar: it’s the day the groups (3 in total) all have separate, semi-individual while in a group, sessions with our professor.

Yeah right, me trying to convince myself we’d be finished today with the XBRL-stuff. Most definately not working this way. Tomorrow we have to attend another class which also guarantees us with enough work, and after that I’ve got to go to work. So very little will be done regarding school I guess… Oh well, there’s always tomorrow

Finally, some action over here!

As of today, which is Wednesday over at my biological clock; however I’m still awake since Tuesday, I’ll be posting regular updates on one of my classes this trimester. It’s the “Seminar” at which we were asked to study a big task, converting an XBRL-document into an OWL-document. Therefore, we were asked to create several documents to enhance our knowledge
