It's the end of my life as we know it!! Jordan and I have decided to get married at last!

Well, there goes the sex ;)

The tentative date is towards the end of May, so Jordan has 8 months to learn her new surname - it took me far longer to learn mine ;)

I'm uberhappy, and so is jordan, PoBK is the maid of honor (hey - who said the maid had to be a female, besides.. PoBK's gay ;)), and Richard Sierakowski is to be my best man. Ohh dear....!

For those who can't make it to the wedding, i've already decided it will be webcast live.. we just need to find a church with either wavelan or an ISDN line - hmmm ;p

happy happy bouncy me!

Jordan is a bit broody, so there may well be more news soon! arhghghghg ;)

On the uni side of things - my god... I can't belive what they are talking to us about... BASIC html design. as in... a blank page with a yellow backgbroudn and a title. Ohh dear.

I've already been pissed off with the lectureres, after I heard this is one:

There are 2 browsers in use today: Internet Explorer, and Netscape. The only one really used is Internet Explorer, as it's the only decent one.

You know how much it took me not to stand up and scream at him? ;)

Still, I hopefully have exemption form a year on the degree.. as the 3rd year is a "work placment". I explained I am operations manager for an ISP, and director of a hosting company, and it seemes to have worked ;)

On the note of people on my course, I have already had to explain what ethernet is to one of them... and this is someone on a Compuiter Sci Degree with 4 A-Levels. Help meeee!

Another good one was when someone asked my advice about getting ADSL in his house, and how to share it with everyone in his house....

Me: I guess they are all running windows?
Guy: *laughs* Well it wouldn't work without windows would it?


Ohh dear god... i'm not sure how much of this I can take ;)

Still there is hope: We had the freshers fair for TermiSoc, the uni Computing Society, of which I am secvratary. This year was a record breaker.. with 74 members!

Now all I need to do is explain to the university why MS-Exhange is nasty, and making all of the Student Extranet work only with IE is Baaaaaaad.
