 +The next project, pbx0 is now in full swing. I've made progress and have discovered 3 data files that have ascii text describing how to finish the project. I have come to a stand-still as one of the files is encoded or otherwise indecipherable and i'm not sure how to fix it. As always professor Haas's help is vague and confusing at best. I understand his teaching method as far as figuring things out yourself, in fact i enjoy the class because it is a challenges my problem solving skills. It is infuriating but i am constantly find myself logging into lab46 at every PC i sit down on and trying a few new things. The other day i found a command in /bin called True. The manual description of the command is "Do nothing, successfully."​. Talk about being unhelpful. Part of me wanted to smash my laptop, scream into the void and then call it the day, the other part of me was genuinely interested in its purpose. While typing this i came up with an idea, i know its possible to look at past classes journals, so maybe ill go investigate those for hints as to what i must do to unravel this puzzlebox. Ill probably just find more unhelpful information. Google hasn't been much help in figuring things out because i have no idea what I'm looking at or what exactly i need to do. I suppose ill get back to it now, just as my headache is starting to fade. Here we go.
