CLUG tonight, where I might give a completely unprepared talk about PandaEdit (unprepared becuase of the Uni workload this week). I also have a maths test today, and an assignment due tomorrow. On top of that, I need to do my normal paid work, and copy CDs for the CLUG tonight.

Anyway, I’m sure you don’t really care about my stress levels, so I’ll be quiet now…

AUUG
I got my copy of the AUUG voting papers today. Voting for or against the people I have met is easy, but a bunch of people nominated for ordinary committee positions who I had never heard of before. It’s really hard to decide to vote for based on a one paragraph statement in the election materials, especially when some didn’t even bother to provide that. I ended up using the Google method of determining who to vote for. This involved searching for their email address, and then seeing if they were a regular contributor to the community. It’s amazing how many people had less than 20 hits for their email address in Google.

Work
I don’t normally talk about work stuff here much, but I thought I should say that I spent some time yesterday fixing a problem where a window handle was being cache incorrectly, and am spending today writing conversion code for one of the internal databases.

Open Source
Still chasing a silly bug in PandaEdit. I will one day find it I imagine. It has to do with the fact that there are many items of type object, and a bunch of them happen to refer to each other.

Uni
18 contact hours, one in class test, two assignments, and two exams before I graduate. Not that I’m counting.

Home
Andrew has started chasing me around saying “Michael” and waving his arms… A constant demand for cuddles. Quite strange.
