Speed Runs, Opera, Power Cuts

So there was a half city of Leeds power cut on Friday, amoung other things including LGI (Leeds General Infirmary), LSRfm.com Blew a Fuse, Katie Died, and now we are live again.

Power went out at 3pm, twas rather odd, both Laptops stayed on, spotify lost audio, second monitor died, and vista1 stopped. Took my headphones off and discovered the lack of whiring from the Rack.

Ran off down the union, its Union wide, then Campus wide, then a thin strip from Leeds Uni. Business School, al the way to the train station.

Eventually the power came back online at 9pm, and from there a Fruity Setup speed run, all done in an hour, I sent my co-worker to do DJ Setups whilst I wacked up the branding and UV Cannons, EPIC!

Now we are Opera bound, just got home from the tech run, we did a speed run on plotting, that was fun, ’bout 15mins. Then tech run, quite a good show, get to play with the lights a little.

My USB/DMX dongol arrived from Australia (£20 import fee), got that to work with the eee, hurrah, it happily drove the Riley Rig for an hour, then reverted to using the Fat Frog! Go with what you know!

But Opera till Wendesday, its called Opera Bites, with single songs from different shows, a nice menagerie.

Then LSR in the Terrace on Thursday, and then The Rileys on friday, and then on to party at Fruity.

That sums up since Friday!

Life is fun, but busy, lotsa coursework, and some freelance work on the go, woot!

Sleep time now!

Google Summer of Code: ACCEPTED!

Woot I got accepted to Google Summer of code!

This year I shall be working with GeekLog and AptitudeCMS on a Syndication API.

This also means Summer will be code filled, and I’m back on Planet Soc! Rocking and rolling for another year.

Landon and Robby are also back on the Programmed! Thousand Parsec and OpenMRS Respectivly!

I’m off to work on the Wailers Gig at LUU today so will catch up with you all later!

WORK!

Back to working now, after taking the Long Weekend off.

So far I have achieved some minor work, plans now to work on H3Wheelmen Xbox Live integration stuff, which means 360gaming.net is going to get its long awaited over haul.

That pretty much means complete rewrite and transferring it to CarlyonCMS, but that means I have to tag and release version1, which means work on LSRfm.com – Leeds Student Radio which then needs porting to Shock Radio.

And LSRfm.com goes back on air, on Monday, and currently the broadcast desk is in bits, took it apart this morning for repairs and maintenance.

So a busy week is to be had….

I also need to get on with some phpBB mods, that I have had on the back burner for a while.

Perhaps I should consider rebuilding the home web server.

 

That reminds me I have lots of coursework to get on with too. I had better start that.

So I shall sign off for now to go and start my work or my coursework, such fun!

 

On a different note, I enjoyed last nights GeekUp we had Dirk Ginader up from Yahoo! London to talk about Accessable Javascript, it was very interesting! Then there was drinking and that was good to!

I recorded it so ill listen back to that later.

SRAcon DONE

So its the day after the SRA Conference.

Everything is done, it all packed down.

My xbox is home and I’m about to play Halo3.

I’ve caught up on my new Twitter Followers, but not my email.

 

I’ve had fun at the conference, running around like a loon, running all the Tech, even some of the technical glitches were fun!
