An NC State Student's CSC 200 Website

Welcome to my website - feel free to take a look around!

About Me -

        My name is Adam Phillips, and I am a junior at NC State studying geology; I hope to one day apply this major to research involving extraterrestrial subjects/objects.  Some of the things that I enjoy doing in my spare time would include eating(but who doesn't like that?), long bike rides,             stalking Goodwill/flea markets, running, fishing, and any other random things that come to mind.  I also enjoy spending time doing things that aren't remotely related to those interests.  For instance, there's nothing like finding really old computers in recycling bins and opening them up to         see how they work.  Or spending hours at a time cuddled up in a blanket on the couch and watching your favorite movie(s) - one of which happens to be Disney/Hyperion's The Brave Little Toaster series.  I also like to spend time learning a programming language called "BASIC", by                 using an old Atari computer/cassette tape system that I found.  And if all of that isn't enough for you to justify saying, "Wow, you seem like a pretty neat person", I'm also gay.


        If you are interested in computers but don't have much of a background with them, then you should definitely take CSC 200.  It's not set up in the traditional college computer science course, so you shouldn't end up hating the class by the end of the semester.  That is, if you can get used to         the fact that most of the InLab work that you turn in nearly always malfunctions when you re-download it to test.  It doesn't help that the rubrics are a little subjective in terms of grading, but overall this class is pretty interesting.  The lecture has information that you most likely have never         heard of before, which keeps things interesting.  For instance, we learned how a computer's clock works and how it makes the computer function properly, instead of just being told that the clock is what keeps the computer organized and leaving it at that.  I do wish we had spent more time         on the Artificial Intelligence section though; especially on the research/creating of humanoid robots.
