Finally we have graduated from university. Our diploma defense took place at 21 of May 2008.

We went to university at 11 o'clock (I had to be there at 10, but I was sleeping :)). I went to second floor to ask computer administrator of university to install VMWare, as he promised. I needed VMWare, because I had to demonstrate Web Server Configurator on Linux. Administrator said that defenses already started (they had to start at 12, but they started at 10), and we can't interrupt them, so you have to wait for interruption which will be at 3. I hadn't any choice and I said OK.

Everybody were waiting for defense at 5th floor. There were Anya, Ira, Mnats, Zhora, Ani and others waiting there. We started to rehearse our presentations. One by one we started to speak about our diploma, and others were trying to ask most dummiest questions. This was very useful!

Then suddenly Anya took out from her bag a laptop. This was Core 2 Duo which she borrowed from her ex boyfriend. I asked can I install my VMWare there and do presentation on her laptop. She said I don't know, but after we asked owner, he said ok. So this problem was solved.

It was already 2 o'clock and we decided to go and enter defense room. We went down to second floor and... and ELECTRICITY GONE!!!! Oooohhh, this is very usual thing for Armenia. Nobody knew when it is going to be back, so we went to cafeteria. Approximately after a 1.5 hour electricity came back and we went back to second floor. This time we occupied place in the defence room. After listening some peoples from other faculties Anya's turn came.

Anya's defence was good, but Mr.Haroutyunyan (and maybe others) didn't even understood what about was her topic. Haroutyunyan turned to me asked is this an economic program? I explained to him that this is a multithread downloader, this program downloads files from internet. He said: "Aaaaa". This was funny.

Then Irina went to the "stage" :) . Her defence was very well and judges were very interested in her diploma and they asked her to demonstrate her program. She was the only person who demonstrated the program. They were very impressed.

Then my turn came. I went, started to talk. I talked very short and presented my whole topic. They liked it very much. They were surprised that I have created something new. So everything was very well.

Then we went again to cafeteria, waited there about an hour and then they started to announce the marks. So me, Ira and Anya have got 5 (the maximum).

Irene posted here about our defence too.
