83% in a test is one that "went really badly"? That'd be a good result for me, modulo how much study I'd done (which tends to be less rather than more).
Turned the power back on at UCC on Sunday (they were upgrading the power switchboard in preparation for putting in 8 new circuits in mid-Jan). Tried to get mooneye (a dual p90) booting an SMP kernel, but failed. 2.2.20-smp died on some APIC call just after activating the second CPU, while 2.4.16-smp couldn't read the partition table of the disk due to IDE timeouts or something. It's currently booting the 2.2.19 debian kernel, I'll probably poke it again tomorrow.
My evil project continues apace. Was slightly miffed to discover that the sre python module wasn't OO based (and so I couldn't subclass it to store metadata about regexps), but got around it by storing my metadata in a dictionary with the regexp as the key.
My standard sleeping hours are around 4am to noon at the moment. Admittedly it is the summer holidays, but I wouldn't mind getting back to more normal times, especially as I'm going to Adelaide in two week, which is 2.5 hours ahead of my current time. Anyone got any ideas on how to get to sleep earlier?
