What a week...

I began to seriously hack on ORBit/C++ on Monday. By Wednesday, it looked like I made the breakthrough, but I quickly realized my approach would lead to more problems than what it solves. I think I have an idea now that will work -- unfortunately, I won't have time to implement it till next week.

It's funny how a Hungarian magazine (I don't want to disclose its name yet) asked me if I'd like to be in a special on hackers -- and then they promised anonymity. WTF? I thought this "Hackers are evil dudes who break systems" meme was soo 2000. Well, why would the media be any smarter than the dumb peons of this rotting country?

I had the worst mid-term ever, the subject was pharmacology. I knew most of the theoretical stuff, but nearly zero drug names. Answers like 'the... hmmm... cyclo-somethings' quickly made this last point obvious. The teacher finally decided to allow me to pass -- with the promise of giving me a hard-as-hell time at the next mid-term, on antibiotics.

The next week's free -- let's hope for some non-sucky partying this weekend, for a change.
