I don't know how
many people read this or how many care, but I'm in fact very
much alive. I'm in the process of finishing off the second
last assigment for this semester (apart from a to-be-written
report for my 2 year project and the usual exams). The weird
thing is it's actually the last regular semester for me,
afterwards I'll just have to write my thesis.
What else have I been up to? I've accepted a job at the
robotics lab for the next couple of months, where I'll be
doing some interesting probabilistic robotics and vision
stuff, apart from (real) embedded development. Real as in
not just another PC crammed into a cubic inch which is a
more adequate description for most consumer devices that
people like to label embedded.
which... I stopped reading mail on my personal account (the
one that receives mail from mailing lists and anything open
source related) months ago. I haven't decided whether to get
back into the loop yet. Given the fact that my schedule for
the next months won't leave much spare time it's at least
not going to happen very soon.
Of course there's
also a good side to this break, in fall it will hopefully be
clear whether a bunch of other projects will be able to
deliver what they promise or not. Once that's out of the way
it will be a lot easier to evaluate the purposefulness of my
involvement in Familiar and related projects.
All courses and the final presentation of our 2 year project
went well. So, yeah, life is good :)
