                             COM319 Assignment 2, week 5 2011

          Writing HTML (and being able to follow written instructions)
The assignment will involve you creating a website (at least a collection of linked pages, images and links).
Part of this will be your CV, with photograph and part will be a formal report on an aspect of the course as
listed below. Half of the marks will be for presentation with bonus marks for effective use of the medium in
communicating your report. You are effectively working on your own in this "lab" - find out how to write
html and use it effectively to transfer ideas and knowledge. There are many ways to learn to write good html
will help and google is your friend. There are also books (small heavy things made of paper - found in
libraries...)

The assignment is worth 33% of the total coursework mark for this course. It is handed out in week 5 and the
deadline for submission is Thursday of week 8. You must hand in a single A4 sheet of paper that lists the
first page of your site and includes your email address and URL address of your site; this must be the first
webpage of the assignment.
.
Ensure you receive a signed and dated receipt of your submission. Late submission will attract a mark of
zero unless I am given instruction by the EC1 committee to allow me to process it. This University rule will
be rigorously applied, without exception. If you have extenuating circumstances you should fill in an EC1
form according to your course rules, forms are found on your course website – your course director can
advise.

Note you only have three weeks to work on this. The lab sessions are available for you to use and you can
also use any other computer.

We will email you your marks within 10 days of the submission date.

Your website should contain an initial page that gives your CV and should include a photograph and a link to
your formal report. The formal report should contain links to other pages held on your site and also external
links Please make clear which is which. A formal report should have a Title, abstract, list of contents,
introduction/background, body, discussion/conclusion and very importantly a list of references and a list of
bibliography. There are marks for each of these categories. It should also be informative and explain in an
efficient and engaging manner – there are marks for this as well.

To work out what report to write you must perform a calculation; take your surname – as listed in your
student records; for each character in your surname convert it into an 8 bit ASCII number and add them all
up. Convert this number to a hex or binary number and take the last 4 binary bits of this number; Convert this
back to a number (which should be between zero and fifteen inclusive). Pick the appropriate report from
below. Ensure part of your first webpage shows your calculations – there are 10 marks allocated to getting
this correct.

                        Please see the next page to see what report you have to do.
                                         Formal Reports:
Research the appropriate topic below, find out explicit information and convince the reader you know what
you are talking about; this should involve studying RFC documents and books on networking apart from the
course text. For many of the topics I would expect to see diagrams for example showing packet formats and
protocol exchanges or examples.
