Wow. It's been ages. Anyway. I got my exam
back in mid-August, and found out that not only was I in
the top ten of results for my college this year (scary), I
got in to my first choice for Uni, UMIST. This is good, as I'll
get to meet lots of funky UNIX people, and hang around at
Probably The Best Sci/Tech Institute In The Country. Always
fun. I move in to Fairfield House this Friday, the 15th.
Well, I didn't make it to the expo, mainly
pessimism. If those annoying exam results (released while
the expo was on) weren't good enough for UMIST, I would
have had to hang around on the phone to other universities
all day and go up for interviews etc. But they were fine,
and I beat their entry requirement by six grades. Which is
quite a lot. D'oh. I should have gone to LWE. :(
ALS is going to be too close to the start of
for me to get there, as I'll still be settling in from
moving from the south coast of England to the north of
England, and getting used to not knowing anyone within 300
miles at all. :) I'm definitely going to the LWE in New
York next Feb., though. Oh yes.
Weird-but-cool project of the day is the g2000
over at nerve.org.uk.
We're having a LAN party in a disused nuclear bunker in
December. More info on the site.
