Life Since the last Post

Yes, I’m rubbish at updating my blog.

So its the new year and suppose I should keep up with it.

In recent news I am no longer single, I go out with the Wonderful Kayleigh.

I’m currently sat at my temporary desk in Stage @ Leeds, (just finished painting a Door Blue and waiting for it to finish drying)

LSRfm.com – Leeds Student Radio is ticking over.

Just did a massive 19 hour shift over New Years for Wax:On over at LUU, quite good fun, running the lights in the Terrace again, didn’t blow up the rig this time which is always a bonus, last time I blew a Atomic 3000, and it tripped the whole rig out….. We think its a manufacturing fault.

So coming soon, back to degree!

Which means 360gaming [dot] net is gonna get some work done to it finally…. Its my project for my degree, bonus!

Tho I should really get on with Data Mining’s essay and my Critical Thinking Essay, total of 6000 words to write by the 14th.

Off to meet the guys from Muze.tv for SRA Chart stuff this weekend.

AND I ORDERED A MAC!

I have a 17″ on its way to me!

So stay tuned for new Mac goodness! As well as regular updatage!

When Friends Ditch You

There I was, all packed up and ready to go to Silverstone, to help a friend run a tent.

Phone them up, rang, and rang, to voicemail, left a voicemail.

Phoned the following day, same, and then phoned on Friday, still no answer.

So I didn’t go to Silverstone in the end, nice of a friend to actually say your not going, except they didn’t.

Let alone, the fact I told a known BBC Sports Reporter I was going, and they were going to come say hello, now I look like an Idiot.

In the end I got quite a lot done on 360gaming [dot] net, it now has working profiles and Windows Live Authentication, but now I must get back to my GSoC Project, I’m finally getting my head round the file structure for plugins, and will be teaching my new boss how to program a Pearl 2004 soon too.

Also I discovered I like Whiskey.

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!
