This week in class we mainly worked on cleaning the shelves and working on our presentations. I presented from 4 to 430 in the monitoring lab. I talked about how you build a pc and how much they cost and what they are used for.

Today in class we helped move things from the upper shelves down to there lower shelves. The earthquakes have caused things to shuffle around and possibly fall. We are moving things down from the higher shelves just for safety.

I used both of my recommendations from bill and from halted as well as a cover letter Mr. H helped me write to complete a small application. Next class I will do some work on raspberry pi.

Week 30 may 5 2018

This week in class I mainly did maintantce on computers and did some swapping of monitors that were broken or that weren't correct resolution for the rigs they we're on. I also tried to organize some of the cables coming from the two pc's. I think a good idea would be to drill a small hole into the desk in the middle that we can route all the wires into. This way they won't get tripped on and won't be visibly messy. Next week I am going to probably start working on raspberry pi's and getting ready for presentations.

Today in class I worked on the alpha computer for a little bit and also finished up a practice quiz for ap us. I installed a temperature monitoring software that showed voltage, power consumption, temps and speeds. Everything seemed to be going great while it was idle and under mild use. I am interested to see how it does temperature see when rendering or processing large tasks.

Today in class I worked on running some tests and scaling the maximum resolution on the alpha computer. The monitor is super good and looks really clean. It is definitely a very noticeable difference 1080 and 4k. I also changed some pc settings and got ride of a lot of junk applications that now come with windows.

Today In class I worked on shaping the 1080- monitor for the 4k monitor. This is important becauseuse now the video editors can shoot in 4k and edit in 4k and be able to see the quality of the footage they are editing on the computer. We took the 1080p monitor and replaced it with one of the apple monitors that had broke.

Week 28 April 21

This week In class I mainly did pc maintenance with the alpha and beta pc's as well as create an order for a low budget pc that were can use with some cpu's that we have lying around. This will be a starter pc that people can build to learn and get experience building computers if they don't have any prior knowledge. Next week I want to fix the problem that we have on the alpha pc where its resolution on the monitor is 1080 instead of 4k.

Today In class I worked on the new pc's I updated and upgraded the resolution one the newest pc that we built. For some reason we aren't able to put 4k on the alpha pc. It is plugged to the right ports on the gpu and into the monitor with a display plug. In the display options the highest it can go is 1080p. Im not sure what the problem is. Next class I will try and look at some of the monitor settings to see if that could be part of the problem.

Today I worked on creating a parts list for a lower end computer that can be built and taken apart by students that are just learning how to build pc's. I chose some good ram and a good ssd as well as a decent motherboard. I also got a intel pentium that was really good price to performance. I also got a mini case with a big side panel and a semi module power supply. Next class I am going to do drivers and temps on new pc's
