M526 TMA01 results and M257 Telnet and Windows Vista

I received the results for TMA01 of M256 and scored 84%. I'm dissapointed with this as I seemed to completely misunderstand Q4 and lost quite a few marks. It wasn't anything difficult just looking for Class Descriptions and variable names but I was on a completely different tangent. I'll have to pull the old socks up for the next TMA's to get my TMA average above 85%.

On a different note, for anybody trying to do Telnet work on M257 running windows Vista please see below. Microsoft removed Hyperterminal from Windows so in order to use telnet the following instructions need to be followed.

Start > Control Panel > Windows Programs and Features. On the left menu click Turn Windows features on or off. A list of features comes up, select Telnet Client and then click install. It may take a few minutes. Once its installed you can run it from C:\system32\telnet.exe

I hope this helps, its not obvious from the activity instructions what you need to do.
