Radio silence

So yeah, unintended blog hiatus and what have you. First couple of weeks after my last post I didn’t have much to talk about, and now I do but I hardly have the time.

Long story short: began my studies at the university. Way cool. Am starting off with some linear algebra, and looks at the moment like I might actually be able to pull it off. Doing a couple of mandatory “computers for dummies” courses at the same time.

Trying to manage a full work week while studying is um… exactly as hard as one might think, perhaps a bit more so. Somehow, I’m still kind of shocked. Then again, I’m also adjusting to waking up around 6:00 every morning, which may contribute to the problem. :)

The CS dept. got neat little Asus EEE 900’s for all the freshmen this year. Lucky me. And I just got a new work phone, a cool Nokia E71. Which pretty much fills my gadget quota for the next couple of years — since in addition to those two I’ve got my desktop, a Mac Mini, the Lenovo laptop and the Dell laptop from work. Holy lack of places to put these things, Batman!

Work-wise things are nice, especially now that the client and I agree on a schedule and a set of features to deliver in that schedule.

That’s about it for now. Sleepy time!
