birthday

'twas my birthday on Friday, which brings me to the big 21... a little scary because I still consider that to be "old". Oh well. For my birthday I got a Canon Powershot Pro90 IS digital camera, which is very very sweet. Probably going to start up a photographic journal on liedra.net but I'll probably write some sort of script that makes things goodly first. Yay. I also got a Pioneer DVD ROM which works really well under linux. Ghost in the Shell is a cool movie.

work

Almost done with the seafolly.com site. There's just a holding page there atm, until seafolly gets their act together and gives me some content :-)
Managed to convice bossen that a linux firewall would be a Good Thing. That's next week's job! Yay :-)

uni

not much going on, dropped a few subjects after it was found that a) Bullant is crap, b) Bullant people paid lots of money to come and advertise to uni students by teaching the software engineering course, and c) Bullant people would be retaining the IP of any projects that the uni students wrote. I was not too happy with any of that, so I dropped it. Otherwise, things are looking as though they're going towards me doing a major in comp sci and a major in history and philosophy of science (a subject I picked up as "something a little different" and have since enjoyed very much). Yay. Pity I have to apply through UAC to change my enrolment. Ber :-(
