What have you accomplished this week?

 

What problems have you overcome this week?

 

What are the most significant problems you face at this time? What will you do to meet these problems?

 

What materials or information do you need? How do you plan on getting these materials or information?



What have you done in this course?

In this course, I have done a project about the function of Random Access Memory, worked with a pentium 3 computer to make it the best possible, tried to download the poerating system, sugar which did not work, and I worked whith kde, trying to download it onto my ubuntu system.

 

What was the biggest challenge for you this semester/year?

The biggest challenge I faced was trying to download sugar, with which I was completely unsuccessful.

 

What have you learned that could be useful outside of school?

I have learned about all the basic parts of a computer, including things like RAM, hard drive, and BIOS. I have also learned a great deal about working with the Ubuntu operating system and how there are some alternatives to Windows.

 

Of the things you have done in this course, what would you like to do more of?

Of the things I've done in this class, I would like work more with alternative desktop environments like KDE.

Briefly describe the project:

Next project-sugar,KDE desktop environment on the Pentium 3

 

What have you accomplished this week?

I went through the steps of installing sugar, multiple times, and I was unsuccessful, so I have moved on. I have now found out about the KDE desktop environment, which I am going to try to install on my machine.

 

What problems have you overcome this week?

I couldn't install sugar, so I have moved on to a new project.

 

What are the most significant problems you face at this time? What will you do to meet these problems?

no real problems right now

Briefly describe the project:

pentium 3 project

 

What have you accomplished this week?

this week, we removed the new hard drive we were trying to add to the computer, and we are working on installing some games like Battle for Wesnotha nd a Flight Simulator, and maybe google earth, if possible.

 

What problems have you overcome this week?

we had to go back to a single hard drive because the one we tried to add just didn't work.

 

What are the most significant problems you face at this time? What will you do to meet these problems?

no huge problems, we just need to figure out how to get these games going and get our machine running at its peak.

 

What materials or information do you need? How do you plan on getting these materials or information?

none

Briefly describe the project:

pentium 3 project

 

What have you accomplished this week?

We've been working on making a hard drive we added get recognized by the computer, but it didn't work so we're just going to use the old one.

 

What problems have you overcome this week?

putting the CD drive in upside down

 

What are the most significant problems you face at this time? What will you do to meet these problems?

we need to make our computer the best it can possibly be, without a new hard drive.

 

What materials or information do you need? How do you plan on getting these materials or information?

we need to find out how to make our computer hte best it can be, we will research in order to do that.

What have you done this term?

This term, we have done the computer components project, in which we researched Random Access Memory. We are currently working on the Pentium 3 project, working with Pentium 3 computers.

 

What was the biggest challenge for you this term?

Our biggest challenge this term was successfully making a cat5 network cable that would actually work. We are now connected to the internet with the cat5 cable that we made.

 

What have you learned that could be useful outside of school?

I have learned how to make a cat5 network cable, that could be useful outside of school. I have also learned how to use GIMP, which is a useful image editing program.

 

Of the things you have done this term, what would you like to do more of?

I would like to work more with the vinyl cutter and work more with GIMP image editor.

Briefly Describe the Project:

I am researching Random Access Memory as part of the Parts of a Compputer/Computer Components project.

What have you accomplished this week?

This week I have gained some additional information about RAM including some different problems that can occure or have occured with random access memory. I was able to tune up the information on my wiki to make it more clear and understandable. We also found some good pictures of RAM and got some actual RAM to display on our poster.

What problems have you overcome this week?

Problems that we had at the beginning of the week were that we needed more information in order to make an accurate poster with sufficient and accurate information. Also we needed to make up for our sub-par presentation.

What are the most significant problems you face at this time? What will you do to meet these problems?

We are really not facing any problems right now, because we have finished our poster and we were able to fit all of our information, pictures, and parts.

What materials or information do you need? How do you plan on getting these materials or information?

We don't need anymore materials or information because we have completed our poster and really don't have any more room for more pictures, parts, or information.

 

Briefly describe the project:

Pentium 3 Project

 

What have you accomplished this week?

We have loaded Ubuntu Linux on to our computer and we have customized the settings. We are now trying to figure out a way to split the network connection between the two computers at our table.

 

What problems have you overcome this week?

We really have not encountered any problems except for figuring out how to split the network connection.

 

What are the most significant problems you face at this time? What will you do to meet these problems?

Splitting the network connection and we will research.

 

What materials or information do you need? How do you plan on getting these materials or information?

We will probably need to make some network cables.

 

Briefly describe the project:

Pentium 3 project

 

What have you accomplished this week?

This week, we have successfully made a network cable and we are now connected, through a router to the internet.

 

What problems have you overcome this week?

We had to re-make the network cable because the wires inside the cable didn't go to the end of the the plastic end, therefore it didn't work.

 

What are the most significant problems you face at this time? What will you do to meet these problems?

I just need to figure out how to print out this weekly update on the printer in the classroom.

 

What materials or information do you need? How do you plan on getting these materials or information?

I just need to find out how I would connect this machine to the printer in the classroom, I'm just going to poke around to see how to connect to the printer.
