I don't know how either of these will be received ... I would classify them both as mediocre papers. But that's mostly because I'm not familiar enough with the topics I'm writing about ... I think in order to write a good paper, I'd have to be more familiar with the topic than I could be just from the material in this class. So overall I'm not concerned about my grade.
But I'm glad to be done with these, and I really don't know why I felt they were so hard. I guess it's because I was trying to do it with references to other papers ... trying to read and parse while writing doesn't seem to work very well for me, unless I know exactly what I'm looking for (and I'm looking at an API reference or something :p).
I'm so looking forward to going back to work tomorrow. ;P Programming is easier than this.
Oh yeah, I'm mostly over that cold. This makes me happy, because I have a bit more brainpower for other things... although I was rather annoyed by the fact that my body woke me up at 6 this morning with nasty stomach cramps. :p
Now then, time to figure out what to do with myself for the rest of the evening...
