Last night I had a nightmare, of sorts. Basically in my dream I was trying to figure out how the simple processor (MARIE) we are studying in Computer Organization works. In the processor there are all sorts of registers and I was trying to figure out which registers are used with which commands. To say the least, you can’t figure this kind of thing out in your sleep. So after awhile of tossing and turning I finely woke up. Went and got a drink of water and went to the bathroom before going back to sleep. The rest of the sleep wasn’t hunted by graphs of processor registers.
I’ve had this sort of nightmare before, but with different classes. Last fall, I tried to figure out VB.NET for Software Engineering in my sleep. Earlier this year, I was trying to figure out how to represent number in different binary forms in my sleep.
This goes to show that you shouldn’t think about programming or computers before you go to bed!
