I think you deserve better for the tuition you pay. There is no excuse for this kind of behavior from a tenured professor. He's supposed to be a professional, the cream of the crop, yet he behaves like a drunken freshman. He's a disgrace, and deserves to be censured if this becomes a pattern.
On the other hand, if he's in the US, he's probably still drunk after a long Thanksgiving weekend, and will most likely sober up and become more normal and reliable over the next few days... It's your call.
I actually don't really have any problem with him.
My class starts early morning and usually I walk into class looking like a totally wasted person (well, I don't drink but mostly because I just can't sleep so usually look like s*** ) and sometimes even sleep during the class but he doesn't mind and never woke me up but always appreciated for the homework and stuff so I guess we're both even.
I sometimes wrestle with this because I find what's interesting to me is not to other people. I like theory a lot, and sometimes people are just more practical.
So I have an upcoming article I'm writing that is rather involved.
It's a tool that allows you to write .NET code in a subset of C#, and then it will render that subset to any .NET language (VB, C#, F#) whatever.
What it's for is to make it easier to develop code generation tools. You can use something like T4 text templating with it to render dynamic code instead of having to build a CodeDOM graph in code without sacrificing the language agnostic nature of the CodeDOM.
What it does is turn a CodeDOM compatible syntactic subset of C# into a CodeDOM graph
How it works involves parsing, type and name resolution, - basically everything a compiler does except the actual code generation part. So like, two of the three tiers.
So, the article could be an article about the tool, or it could be an article on like a beginners compiler writing guide.
Which is more interesting? The tool or the pseudo-compiler guide?
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
Please both So two connected articles. Why?
a.) Both are interesting
b.) During christmas you have a lot of time
c.) But the most important: It will hopefully helps you having your hand on the keyboard and therefore away from cigarettes
It does not solve my Problem, but it answers my question
Tell them it's OK, even Santa is on board with this, he named one of his reindeer 'Doner' didn't he?
