Well, hi. I am currently nearing the end of a 3 hour break
between two very pointless lectures at uni, so I decied to
come have a groan, and a cheer around here. Ewww. That
Anyways, I am currently bored beyond all recognition - the uni machines dont have a) autoconf, b) automake, c) libtool, or d) cvs - so i am unable to work on ferite, and this annoys me. It annoys me even more when the university refuses point blank to install these onto the systems here. (it woulnd't be a big deal as it would simply be a case of installing it once - then eveyr work station has it due to the nice NFS mounted root file system). Nevermind, it stumps the work i could be doing (I could go home - but by the time I have got there and back it's not worth the effort and time). So I am stuck here.
...but I am looking forward top this evening. It's that night that crops up everyso often called VODBULL. So, I hear you cry, wtf is it? Vodbull = a night some enterprising student came up with in birmingham (and it soon spread) where you go along, a buy double vodkas and redbull for one enligsh pound. This is wicked - and susually ends up everyone in the group of friends i go with, drinking excessive amounts in the order of 16 drinks (read: 32 shots of vodka and 16 shots of redbull) - and what can i say? it's wicked fun :-) - but you do tend to leave the building fairly early on :-). Friday night and Saturday night were also a great laugh - spent most of friday in the pub with everyone, and Saturday night was spent at our student union getting very drunk, dancing to cheesy mousic and have a nutty time. Sunday was spent doing sweet fa, and then i worked a load on the namespace cleanup stuff on ferite.
ferite is coming along nicely, I am currently removing duplicate code and cleaning up the logic within the system (it's currently stupidly complex to see whats happeneing - which makes it 1000% more tricky for anyone bar me to hack on atm). Also the code is being more generalised and lots of the internal code is using more of the same routines - which is wicked as optimasations help all of it. I am also thinking about sitting down and writing a white paper on my OS design I have been planning for the last 5 months or so, hopefully I shall start real work on this system for my final year project - or once ferite has matured and I have slightly more free time.
Anyways, carry on smiling people, until the next intrepid adventure update. And please forgive the typing, the sun keyboards here are evil - half the reason i dont do work that much here at uni is because i find i can work for much longer using my natural keyboard at home (my arms actully physically hurt after about 20 minutes of hard typing here - at home i can go on for hours ;))
