elanthis: I waited over 2 months for my AlBook - be patient, it might be a while :-(

In other news, getting back into coding pretty heavily - last few months has been insane, more organisational-style stuff at work (documentation, planning) due to the fact our company expanded, and my position turned from sole developer to project leader. What a change of worlds. I think the boss is still having difficulty understanding that adding programmers to a development team doesn't result in linear productivity.

I've got months of code I need to commit back into the moregroupware CVS tree, just so bogged down at the moment with all sorts of work. Having slower-than-dialup speed Internet certainly isn't helping things - plans to move soon too, which will help hugely in the long term (I'll actually be able to work at home!), isn't exactly the best thing right now.

Still editing video for LCA2004 - fortunately it's the kind of thing that although does take gobs of time, I'm able to do it simultaenously whilst coding or such as it doesn't require 100% attention (dubbing tapes, syncing in speex audio, and just playing through things to make sure nothing strange happens) - and it's a welcome change from my usual work. Still might be a while away until printing, but any attendee will recieve the DVD in the mail once it's completed, and there'll be videos up for download, too. Plenty of funny stuff :-)

Hrm, think I'm starting to get old - remember when going to concerts and playing games was loads of fun. Haven't played games for almost a year now, due to lack of interest, and Big Day Out yesterday was a huge dissapointment. Eep :-(
