This .plan update dedicated to Sara, who cooked me a really nice dinner
last night. She won't understand a word of this as she's a non-tech,
but hey; it's better than never getting a mention at all, right?

Well. I've now done really rather a lot of work in the last few days,
at the expense of sleep, food. But not, it would seem, without the truly
premature emptiness of multiple jars of coffee. Ho, hum.

My project
That's what I've been working on. I've basically written the hooks
into the normal RTLinux scheduler, and implemented one policy that is
defined in my project [a deferred server], and one policy that's not
[a never server]. And it's actually pretty good fun.

You know, in a geeky sorta way.


Bugger it.

Sara's now got my PlayStation, and it's staying there until I do some
bloody work. Grrr.


Built a mySQL database on my machine at home this morning, Builds really
cleanly now. Nice.

Sara whupped me at BomberMan. Bugger.

Hmmmmm. Am being offered muchos cash to write a Quake2 mod. Hmmmmm.

If you're currently running FAKK2 on Linux and are seeing
total blowouts early in the game, have a shufty at my
unofficial patch

Major kudos to Taylor Richards if it's actually working


The PlayStationCam
That is all


Hmmm. Well, the exam's over. Lemme see. The exam started at 9; here's
the first entry in my timeline for today:
9.35am: Phone call from department wakes me from my sleep.

Ho, hum. What can you do, right?

Anyways. I think I failed it. Not by much, but a bit. Apparently, I may
or may not get penalised.

Got two e-mails from companys I've applied to for jobs recently. ARM
want to see me for a second interview [which is very very cool indeed],
and CodeMasters wondered if I'd consider testing for them, and if not,
could I please verify I'm l33t with C and C++...

Note for people on I've updated one to mutt that doesn't
have the recently-found remotely-exploitable security hole.


Why I hate my ISP
I'm just really annoyed at BT, now, and I'm hoping this puts them into
perspective for anyone who is considering purchasing their service.


And I'm still not getting any work done. I re-built UnrealTournament to
include a splash screen again instead of doing any reading, today.

You have no idea how mind-bogglingly boring this course is. You may
think you do, but you don't.
The whole course in a nutshell


Just for reference, I've given the playstation away until after the
exam. In the the hopes that in the 48 hrs I've got left before it,
I'll do some reading for it. I'm going to bed.


Note to self: you have an exam on Wednesday, for which you must have read
on the order of 40M of text. Of which you've currently done, literally,
zero. So why, exactly, are you playing Metal Gear Solid?

Just thought I'd mention: if you're a user of, I've actually
built tin and mutt in my home area. They're in ~chunky/bin. Mutt is the
latest stable [1.3.24i], and tin is the latest unstable [1.5.10]

Note: mutt doesn't have imap support; you don't need it. Get qmail to
deliver to a mailbox in your home, and then you won't be able to hammer
the imap server. Look at my .qmail to see how to do this with procmail.

For reference, I have the following in my .bash_profile:
alias tin="tin -r"

Am working on a PlayStationCam. If other people are allowed webcams, I
should be allowed a PlayStationCam [since that's the only thing currently
plugged into my TV card (=]

Just for Mr Hendersa-man, you should know that yesterday I did this:
IIS is annoying me now
