Can't say things are hotting up. Things are damn hot as it is. I'll release a big sigh when things start to go out of my way (read: tests get done and assignments get handed in). Anyway, I guess it could always be worse and I'll just try to both a) plan my schedule carefully and b) try and keep breathing. If all goes to plan I'll be home free for the time being by the end of January (30th to be more precise) even if the semester is over next wednesday.

Championship Manager
It finally got fixed. Turns out the problem with the master database was due to power outages at the office. Hmm.. Anyway, there's a boatload of translation to be done and it seems the deadline is Jan 20th. Hmm...

Linux kernel
Unfortunately I can't focus on the kernel development as much as I'd like to, though I still read linux-kernel regularly. The good news is that the so called Nvidia thread is finally getting more and more quiet. I still can't properly use the radeonfb under 2.5 kernels and James Simmons, the fbdev guy, hasn't replied to my email to the list. There's still a long way to go until 2.6 and I don't have many issues with 2.5 to get rid off, so things are looking good.

Real life type stuff
Oh yes, my DVDs from amazon.co.uk have arrived. In case you don't know, amazon are selling several DVDs 50% off, so I just took the chance and bought both Apocalypse Now Redux and Heat. I've seen the original AN from 1979 and felt like having the Redux version on DVD would be perfect. As for Heat, I've seen it back when it was out but I honestly don't remember any of it. Considering I've been told it's a damn great movie and it was £7.99 on amazon...

Bad thing: my TODO keeps enlarging instead of shrinking. Not good. Not good at all. Must invert the flux of things.
