I mus admit I've been pretty lousy at updating this blog, but for those of you who still read it (or at least check back once in a while) here is whats been up.
I've gotten into a pretty stable routine in terms of school work. Having finished (and passed) my Linear Algebra course I am down to a manageable load of 3 courses. and things are looking reasonable. Still a lot of work but I am confident that I'll pull through.
Life at home is good. I'm getting along well with my flat mates and have a bunch of little fix-it projects on the go all the time. These make me very happy :)
last week we had a fire inspection of the building and people on all floors threw out a bunch of stuff to "de-clutter" the escape routes to prevent our eviction, so I scored a bunch of free stuff including: a table, some speakers, a hanging organizer thingy for my clothes, and some cabling.
I was sick this week, since Wednesday I think... but I'm better today. Just in time to enjoy a bit of weekend.
Ah yes the project... I think I'm going to blog on this a bit more as I do it. The general Idea is to use an old PC wirelessly networked with all the computers on our floor (thats 19 if you count mine) hooked up to an old TV so we can wirelessly stream any movie off anyones PC to be watched in the common room. As an added bonus I plan to have the PC auto-boot into a Super nintendo emulator so I can place EVERY super Nintendo game ever made, in the living room.... planning proceeds, I'll post more on this project later.
I got to wander around and shoot a couple of rolls of film yesterday. Found a heron by one of the canals and it made for an interesting subject. We'll see how they turnout. I'll post those pics to http://www.flickr.com/photos/apothecary/ when they are developed and scanned.
In the boredom inducing grip of illness I managed to do some really boring but necessary maintenance on my computers... looks like my little MAC laptop might be salvageable after all (fingers crossed). Also cleared up some space so I can resume listedning to the BBC top 100 billboard songs every week (its good to keep on top of what crappy pop people are diggin' as time passes:))
I've applied for a job at a sketchy pub near my place... I still dont have any real documentation allowing me to work or even be in this country, Thank you dutch beaurocracy, but the pub in question hardly seems the kind of palce to care. They dont actually have a permit to operate.
Well, I'll try to be better at updating this page more often... with photos...
