Well kids, I've finished my fourth year project. Managed to lose all the documentation and had to write it all out again last night. Got it written anyway. The diff (one-way) algorithm was an important part of it used in a versioning database the app included.

Now it's on to distributed systems. I have to write a client-server application with CORBA. It's up to me what I write, and the only requirement is that I have to use C++ and Java, one for the client and the other for the server. Yet again, it's up to me what I use. Oh, and did I mention that one has to run on Windows and the other on *nix?

It won't be so bad. I'm thinking of writing a version of Othello. Danka gave me the idea. It's been a long time since I've played the game and I did a search for an implementation. I thought it'd be a nice project to write an Othello server over UDP. I've never really done anything with UDP, and I thought it'd be nice to try.

I mentioned this to her, and she said that I should write it using CORBA. Sure, it's not exactly the best use of CORBA, but it'd get my DS assignment out of the way.
