Post #SRAcon

So its post #SRAcon now, it was a good conference, nice to catch up with people, had some fun with the Flickr wall, but banned from the Twitter wall, no fun to be had their.

Learnt some things and came up with some ideas for the coming year.

In other news, didn’t get appointed as Web or Chart, so that sucks.

Anyway this week is GSoC application time, so getting on with that as well as general coursework. And loosely job hunting….

Should hear about Glastonbury Radio Station soon too…..

#SRAcon 2010

So Its SRAcon again, this year in Nottingham, hosted by FlyFM.

End of March is the time 29th thru 31st, with a nice little trade fair on the 29th, which I shall be exhibiting at as the Chart Show Co-ordinator.

Just been looking thru the schedule, for the two and a half days.

Looks like some interesting stuff… tho techie drinks does still sound like a good plan.

Interesting News, the Administrative Officers are now Appointed, not voted for…

Like last year, I’m currently considering applying for Web and Chart again.

We shall see.

Anyway, see those of you in Nott’s when the time comes….

General Update

Yes I knows, I needs to update my blog more.

I’ve been pretty busy working over at Stage 1 these past couple of weeks, I had to hack the Congo, the theatres Lighting desk, to teach it how to talk to Stage’s new ETC 1 Port Nodes. The Congo runs Windows XP, and I know a few backdoors 🙂

I was reading Binary Hex’s Post on Language Speeds today, and was suprised at the Slow-ness of Ruby, and indeed of Perl, I used to program Perl, but response speed times are not something I tend to notice for languages, I worry mroe about Web Server response and loading times.

I’ve been neglecting AptitudeCMS, just through sheer business.

Hell I’m supposed to be at Work right now, just waiting in LSRfm.com Offices for my Co-Worker to arrive. Gotta love Flexitime!

SRA wise, I need to build an online sign up form for the National Student Radio Chart, which I need to start organising. Broadcast and Freshers week dates are getting close.

Not forgetting the upcoming SRA Training Day in Birmigham on the 12th, that should be good.

The day after that (13th) I have my first non union techie shift, down at the Queen’s Hotel in Leeds City Center, should be good and promises to lead to other things one hopes, we shall see.

Its all go here, just waiting for some stuff from other people and then time to kick into high gear!

Anywho I must go, time to go to work, will remember to post soon!

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!

Gotta love my office for the last three days ^^

 

Anywho, I am now the SRA Chart Co-ordinator, you’d better all be nice to me, or you station won’t be hosting the chart…….I joke

 

Laters all!

HAWX and GSoC

Well GSoC 2009 first stage is done, applications are now closed, next point on the timeline is the 20th of April, where we find out if we have been accepted.

 

In other News Work today and Sunday is cancelled since HarderTimez is no longer rocking in the Terrace as well as Stylus. On the up side (sorta) Sage (my bosses Boss) have got us in early on Saturday (well um today), 14 hour shift anyone? (Start 3pm finish 5pm)

 

I purchased Hawx the other day for my Xbox360, enjoyed the demo. However the story might be a little short, finished in 8 hours, straight, on normal. So will up the difficulty and go again.

Flying with assistance off, is rather different, especially when in Expert Control Mode. But I digress.

Playing over LIVE is rather good too! Not tried Co-Op Yet tho.

 

Finally its the final two days of prep for the Nation Student Radio Conference, to be held at University of Leeds, with LSRfm.com, and having been given a certain set of keys, life is a hell of a lot easier.

 

Anywho gonna get on Halo3 Over Live and do some Team Flag, thats this weeks DoubleEXP. Weekend!

 

Woot!
