Grading Update -1: Linked the Final Exam
to the previous work page. The exam explains my remark about triangle fan
primitives for the geometry shader output.
Grading cannot start until after the
exam is over, of course. Grading may start late this afternoon or
tomorrow. Due to another exam, grading may not be complete until
as late as Thursday. Good luck on your other exams!
Homework 5 will be collected on Wednesday night after midnight.
Please try to do a good job with the extra time.

Fixed a bug in the Homework 5 code. If you pulled before
Mon Nov 20 13:26:07 2017 -0600 (commit ef2eded) you'll need
to update. The flaw causes a fatal OpenGL error, and is due
to an uninitialized variable. The modified code is in hw05.cc.
If you haven't modified that file a git pull is safe.
If you have modified hw05.cc and don't want to risk
learning about merge collisions at a time of year when there's already
plenty to do, then make the following change by hand: Add
the line bos_tiles = 0; to routine

Homework 5 assigned, due Monday, 27 November 2017.

Grading Update 0:Linked the midterm exam
to the previous work page. The post-exam version of the
exam includes a link the Key Reinstallation Attacks
site, which describes the recently disclosed Krack attack WiFi WPA
vulnerability. Please update your OSs (the fix is in Fedora 25, 26,
and 27 beta and in MS Windows) and wireless router firmware. Back to the test.
Grades will be available some time next week. Updates will
be posted, probably a day in advance.
In case anyone has forgotten, Homework 3 is due on Monday.
The due date for Homework 3
has been changed to Monday, 23 October 2017.
Use the extra time to make the platform extra smudgy
and the code extra clean. Also, don't forget that the
midterm exam is on Wednesday, 18 October 2017.
