I love school - we're finally doing some real UNIX programming (specifically, SMP programming on a 4 processor Sparc). After 3 years of Java bullshit (including the use of Java to teach an OS class...sheesh), it's nice to be doing real work.[1]

I also accepted a coaching job over the Christmas holidays. I will be an assistant coach for the freestyle skiing development league. Since I started university of few years ago, I have really missed being involved with the sport. I'm very happy to be returning, albeit with a different role.

[1] In other applications, such as JSP, I actually don't mind Java very much. I just hate having to use it constantly in school when C is more appropriate for the subject being covered.
