No Computer :(

Oh my – 10 days since the last update. Partly my fault – partly not. First – I moved to Waterloo on the 8th. Unfortunately, my computer was packed away on the 7th. I’ve been without the net for a week (horror!!). When I finally got the net on Sat 14 (sharing) I found that Rogers is dog slow… I also found out I can’t update the sympatico page because I’m not ftping in from a sympatico account. Garbage. Worked on the work term report and handed that in today. Found out that I messed the page numberings up royally. Also worked on my resume a bit. Will have to do more work tomorrow. Got more involved in WARG. This is supposed to be our easiest term. I like it so far – but Calculus is for some reason again proving to be uncooperative. Actually I blame my brain.

Problems Galore

Man, seems like today is a repeat of yesterday. Same problem continues over… Worked quite a bit on the report today. Finished the letter of submittal, summary, conclusions, recommendations, started on the figures, included the table, got some information into the ranking sheet, cut the report down to 20 pages… Yet I could have done more. If there’s one book I definitely will read its “How to use each hour effectively!”… I’m sure I could do more with my time. Last day before moving it. Kinda anti climatic. Feel like I’m in a void or something. Erik is a lost cause. Oh well, not much I can do about that. Watched pieces of The Matrix and read up datasheets. Whee! Talked to Dave on ICQ… He’s starting his report today.

Finally…the Net!

Today was a horrible day. I worked on my report – got somewhere but not much. It feels like I’m winding the entire thing down after all it is over the limit. Talked to Jaron about Linux and where it should go. I’m of the opinion that if people are interested they should try it out and recognize that it’ll involve a bit of dissonance (for now). He wants things to become pain free before he’ll move. I guess he’s waiting… Talked to Bell, set up the phone line. That took a lot of time. Asking about the billing, Sympatico and on and on… Finally got in touch with Justin on ICQ. It’s like he’s a mirage – you can almost *never* catch him. Set up Internet with Rogers – reasonable price for the first three months. Extortion afterwards since we don’t have TV. Talking to everyone tires me out :( Rest of the day unfolded badly.
