Done, and...done.

It hit me while lying in bed this morning, the topic for the final research project: linear codes! What's not to like about linear codes? While not incredibly interesting, even rudimentary codes like repetition codes and basic parity checks involve vector addition and the notion of subspace. And how quickly these give way to Hamming's work, where all of a sudden matrix multiplication comes into play!

Yes, that's what I'll do...

...of course, I'm leaving town for a few days, but I'll hammer out this project when I get home.

Also, come hell or high water, I'm going to start that syllabus as soon as I get back, too.

Until then, faithful readers...
