Ok, it's currently the earliest I have ever been up, I am facing a pile of Java work that has to be done by thursday or I can kiss good grades away. And for some reason I am sitting here doing some optimsations to ferite.

I have basically just converted a load of stuff that used to use a linked list to store information over to hashes (my new favourite data structure/algorithm FYI: i like the sheer simplicity of the idea and how with a few tweaks it's quite quick :)), which at the moment shouldn't make too much difference but when class's and object start having large number of methods they will come in handy. The next step is to make the scripts have there functions stored within hahes. yum. After this little escapade I shall add caching to the hashing so that items that get used regularily are quickly found. I have also made a number of fixes pertaining to class's which someone found. For those of you interested as to what a ferite script looks like, here is an example script.

And on that note, I am off to get ready to goto uni and hand in a Software Engineering essay.
