Lost For Words

Closing in on a month from the last blog post and I still can't think of anything worthwhile to write, especially if you exclude the boring day-to-day stuff. Guess I'll just have to go on that anyway.

Uni-related, things were fairly busy starting around 3 weeks ago up until last weekend. Ultimately, the steady stream of work meant things got left to the last minute. This, in turn, meant items due later in the week didn't get started until later in the week. Such a vicious circle, but we got there in the end. Two of my subjects had mid-semester and end-of-semester tests which didn't go too badly, so I've only got 2 exams this year, albeit one on a Saturday afternoon.

Currently I'm at home for swotvac and plan to head down to the lake at some point to check out the water levels - I've heard they haven't dropped too much now that the cooler weather is here, but it'll still be good to check it out first hand. Also this week, I had my room rearranged on me. On the plus side, the new layout is pretty good, and my room's now fairly clean (although that's probably because the hallway is still half filled with bits and pieces).

As for the T7G project I'm working on, not much has happened here either. Both Spookypeanut and myself haven't done a lot although jvprat has been slowing working on implementing a few things to the ScummVM plugin including initial music support and preliminary support for the other Groovie games. One of the first things I plan to do when I get the chance to fiddle with the C# implementation to move from multi-threading back to single-threading as it eliminates some of the occasional read/write access hazards I've been experiencing.

Finally, to wrap up this post I've also just finished reformatting my server with a clean install of Ubuntu 8.04 which is now happily sitting out connected to the TV again :)

Hey! I was wondering what you were up to. Exams really suck but I'm glad you got through them - have a good break. :)

I've gotten through the tests with exams still to come, but when it comes down it it, they're much alike anyway. I'm enjoying the temporary break either way though :)
