No Office Hour Tomorrow

There will not be office hours tomorrow. If you planned to visit my office, please contact by email and make an arrangement for an appointment. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

OS This Week

This week, we proceed to CHAPTER 3 "MEMORY MANAGEMENT" of the textbook. It is expected to cover the first two sections (3.1 " NO MEMORY ABSTRACTION" and 3.2 "A MEMORY ABSTRACTION: ADDRESS SPACES") during the lecturing in the 1st period. However, it is also possible to proceed to Section 3.3 (VIRTUAL MEMORY) if the time allows. Read these sections, find what the instructor will talk about and look at the keywords (the words in bold letters) -- do 'google' on these keywords.

As it has been told you from the first day of the class, just sitting in the classroom, without textbook and/or taking notes, won't get you anything...
