  Class and Schedule
Our second class was last night. The instructor taught most of the Quant stuff. It was a good review.

It's kinda like taking a large class in college. There are 200 students and no class time for a bunch of questions. Fortunately, the guy will personally answer any question sent to him via email (he will actually call you back).

Anyway, I have to go to the library in about 30 mins, so I figure I would post my newest schedule (excluding Tuesdays and Fridays). I created this in excel, and it is a pain-in-the-ass to convert to HTML.
I first have to copy it to MS Word then save as filtered HTML. Next, I have to open it in notepad to remove all the crap the MSFT adds to the code. Then I run it through TIDY HTML to properly format. Finally, I have to copy the code back to MS Word and remove all the newlines (cuz this blog automatically adds <br> in place of \n).

Again, a real pain-in-the-ass. So enjoy!
