You may recall me complaining about the Georgia university system's mandated test for graduation — the Regents' Test. Well, the results were due back before the end of next week and I decided to check up on it before going to bed. It seems that I passed with a score of '3'! The papers are graded by three people and rated on a score of one to four, four being the highest. The lowest passing grade is two and the paper has to be rated as passing by at least two of the reviewers. Third try, score of three, and I don't have to take that damn test again. I am extremely pleased.
Also, I updated my winfo utility today. It now gives a listing of any non-hidden wireless networks, and the AP's MAC address, within range if any are available. It will make finding the APs that broadcast the same SSID as the official campus wireless network much easier for me. For some reason, certain departments on campus seem to think that they need their own APs, set the SSID to be the same as the official campus one, and broadcast it so that students' machines will connect to it instead of the real APs. It is maddening.
