Everything and everything else

Well… time for another block of things to put together into one big post for your reading pleasure.

My first Uni Unit is now completed – the final lecture was today, and didn’t consist of much… Just a tad of revision, lasting not much more than half an hour. However, myself, Aaron Just, and a bunch of his friends decided to make the last lecture memorable. We did this by stringing a loop of fishing wire between the two top lecture theatres in the main Uni Building, and taping long Java-related messages to them, and running them across the back of the lecture theatre. It almost went according to plan, except that Julian (the lecturer) decided to ask questions of the class, and made a joke about me not being in the theatre. He then cleverly looked up to where we were, thus seeing the poster before we got to string it across the line :( . All in all, it was mostly successful. I’ll provide the audio once I clear up the copyright complications.

Secondly, I got my first blogspam today :( . I may have to disable commenting if the issue continues – I will get into contact with my hosts to see whether or not we can fix this.

More news as it comes… cya!

General Update

For today’s general update, I’m telling you what’s going on in my world of computers.

Firstly, I’ve done a considerable abmount of CSS Tweaking over the past day-or-so, with a fair bit more to do. Firstly, gone are the ugly blue boxes over some of the headings. Those have now been replaced with a smaller version of the second-level headings. I’ve also added a nice underline for those headings. So, that looks good. Please, feel free to let me know what works and what doesn’t in the new layout (either by commenting or otherwise.)

And more importantly, I have finally accquired a decent computer to run as my utilities server. I’ll be running SSH/E-Mail/Web/File Server software on it, which will be quite useful in general. It is to be named Mischa, after the second GoldenEye Satellite (from the movie of the name of the sattelites). The OS Will be Debian 3.1. I’ll give you an address from which you can access the services it provides soonish.

That’s it for now… See you!
