Been thinking about how to write a good event manager for the widget library I'm working on. I'm still experimenting with a few things. I'd like to have a strongly typed system, but being able to do that cleanly and efficiently has proven to be rather difficult.

for some odd reason I've been thinking about going back to school. Not full time, but if I can manage to organize something so that I can do it part time that'd be awesome. I guess I had a slightly different perspective about college than some of the other postings I've seen here. Obviously, it depends on where you want to go and what you want to do. Certainly, going to college can open some extra doors; for example, my current employer only hires (for SW engineers) college grads; but then, I've also had many successful entrepreneurs tell me that spending time in school is a waste of time; that I'd be better off joining startups or what not.

For someone like me who can't seem to make up his mind about what he wants to do, I guess college gave me an opportunity to explore lots of different areas that I wouldn't have a chance to do now. For instance, college has changed my perspective on many topics (databases, compilers) that formerly seem dry and uninteresting, but now represent some of my core interests in computers.

Anyway, I'll stop babbling now. Back to HHGTG...

P.S. Outlook sucks. It took about 45 minutes to load over DSL (60kB/s) before it let me read my mail at work :(
