CO238, 5.45pm, Thursday 7/10/2004

It's not really a talk. More of a workshop, and an excuse for me to learn MagicPoint. Given to (and therefore, aimed at) 200 level BIT students late in the academic year.

What the BIT students were told:

> Tonights session is the same format as last weeks, (1hour then
> Break for Dinner, then another hour or so).

> get through all the following:
