Here are some notes for your essay about Linux v. Microsoft





There will be questions based on these five articles on your final.

World's Hardest Logic Puzzle

Three gods A, B, and C are called, in some order, True, False, and Random. True always speaks truly, False always speaks falsely, but whether Random speaks truly or falsely is a completely random matter. Your task is to determine the identities of A, B, and C by asking three yes-no questions; each question must be put to exactly one god. The gods understand English, but will answer all questions in their own language, in which the words for yes and no are 'da' and 'ja', in some order. You do not know which word means which.

Final exam review

It's important to be able to summarize difficult text. Wikipedia is an important site: probably more important for computers than for history. I've imagined there should be different wikipedias for different levels of reading ability and intelligence but that's probably an elitist consideration unworthy for the public schools. Nevertheless, for those of you who are still reading on, try reading the following text on wikipedia and summarizing it in your own words. Following that are some questions taken directly from the final.

1. -what is ethernet? ...especially:
Dealing with multiple users

CSMA/CD shared medium Ethernet
2. know this!
3. Summarize what a web server is:
4. What is the difference between:
Static vs. Dynamic content for websites.
5. Summarize the following:
6. Summarize the following: know them all!
7. Review the sql statements on
8. What does do when entered into a browser?
9. What happens if you press the Control key and T at the same time while using Firefox 2.0?
10. What does the Control key + Z do?
11. Why would someone ping a remote server?
12. What is the Google Page Rank Algorithm? (be detailed!)
13. What is an algorithm?
14. How do PHP and MySQL work together?

This is too funny...

Post your reaction on your blog

6 grade Assignment due Monday, May 14th

This is a retrospective assignment looking back at the work done this year.

First you will create a logo for "Introduction to Computers, Miami Killian Room 319" and create an HTML page with a brief introduction about yourself. Also on this page will links to the following pages (each page will be named the topic PLUS .html). On each page include at least one picture.

Javascript (named Javascript.html) :

* What is it used for?
* How would one design a "Rock, Paper, Scissor" game?
* Put two examples of Javascript code inside this page and explain what the code does.


* Pick two modules you worked on this year (see me if you sad if that's the case).
* Write a summary of what the modules taught.
* What was the best thing about the modules in general?


* What is a server?
* How does the Internet work?
* What is the TCP/IP model?
* What is ethernet?
* What is 802.11n?


* Why would someone need PHP?
* What is MySQL used for?
* Give a summary of Did you enjoy the course?
* Link to three pages using PHP. Bonus if you made the pages!


* Upload your favorite two Flashes created this year and upload them to a remote server.
* Embed the two Flashes inside an HTML document (Flash.html).


* Link to your Google Sketch Up work.
* What do you think of Google Sketch Up?
* Did actually designing products and houses using Google Sketch Up give you a better feel for how designers work?
* What is Blender? Are there any other open source 3-d design products out there?

Your passwords for the class server are here.

Posted grades online

I added the grades for the model of the hotel and the cell phone. When you finish yours make sure to leave the link on your blog (IN THE FORM OF A LINK) and then let me know.

Put your sketch up online

After you upload your sketch up copy and paste your link here.

Upload your sketch up by using "File"-> "3d Warehouse" -> Share model.

Then click on Link to this model!

Design Competition

All computer students are to design a hotel for downtown Miami and a new design for a cell phone! Upload your work when you are finished using 'File'-> '3d Warehouse'-> Share. Put a link on your blog when finished. This will be worth a grade.

If you have time after you finish you can continue working on your PHP, Flash, HTML and MySQL.

Tomorrow we will have a contest for the best hotel and best new cell phone in each class!

Two person groups...

What is expected for the second dynamic web pages, HTML, Flash, and business plan:

The first project was done about a car dealership. These projects will be for scooter stores, Pac Sun, a watch store, a video game store, a flower shop, and a web hosting company.

First you must have three HTML pages minimum. You may choose a template online but you must customize it for your own business. Honestly the simplicity of doing it without a template is quite appealing to me.

The database needs two tables (Inventory and Employee) with at least 5 pieces of information in each.

Now on to the dynamic aspect of your web pages! You need a link to show ALL the Inventory table and ALL of the Employee table much like the previous assignment with Braman Motors. Additionally now you need a dynamic drop-down box with the name of the Employee or the item in inventory. This way users can quickly find out information about the item specifically without having to wade through superfluous data! Also there needs to be a way to add new records into the table, a way to update data, and a way to delete unnecessary information.

A new addition is that you need to add javascript that will add to the functionality of your page. There is a great deal of code out there which is freely available! Google is your friend!

Try this...

Try typing killiancomputers into Google. Cool.

Here's the PHP code for mysqli

This works:

if ($db = @mysqli_connect('', 'pn_461233',
'student1')) {
mysqli_select_db($db, 'pn_461233_test');
$result = mysqli_query($db, 'SELECT * FROM
while ($row = mysqli_fetch_object($result)) {
} else {
echo "Connection failed";

Google (meaning you) are your best teacher. Don't wait for me to find mysqli connection strings. Oh well.

Monday, April 16, 2007

Newer connection string

This connection string worked for me:

/* Connect to a MySQL server */
$link = mysqli_connect(
'', /* The host to connect to */
'pn_461233', /* The user to connect as */
'student1', /* The password to use */
'pn_461233_test'); /* The default database to query */

if (!$link) {
printf("Can't connect to MySQL Server. Errorcode: %s\n", mysqli_connect_error());

/* Send a query to the server */
if ($result = mysqli_query($link, 'SELECT * FROM table1')) {

print("Very large cities are:\n");

/* Fetch the results of the query */
while( $row = mysqli_fetch_assoc($result) ){
printf("%s (%s)\n", $row['name']);

/* Destroy the result set and free the memory used for it */

/* Close the connection */

Really smart.

Creating a site to display our flash work...

As a class it would be beneficial to make a web site so we can host all the Flash and Javascript we've done throughout the year. Is anyone interested in being the webmaster? What are the best sites that have free hosting?

Leave me a comment or write an email.

Your next assignment...

Refer to the previous blog post and comment on your blog with a minimum of 250 words. Leave a comment on that post.

You are going to make an individual flash animation based on President Bush's decision to send thousands of more troops into Iraq. It must be at least 30 frames and it must take a side. If you show street fighting you have to indicate whether his decision will improve the situation in Iraq or whether it won't.

This will be due Monday.

We'll do the initial Flash presentations 1-12-07. Sorry about the technical glitch with the projector.
