Graduate…

I got a II.2 🙂

Looking at my individual breakdown, I got a II.1 in my fyp, a I and a II.1 in my networking exams, but fatigue by the end of my exams dropped my average down to an overall II.2.

Not that I mind, college is (finally) behind me and I’ve a great job and having lots of fun. Life is very, very good. 🙂

First Day of the Rest of My Life…

Hmmm, unintentional, slightly depressing title.

This is a busy week for me.

  • Started my new job today. 🙂
  • Tomorrow, exams results (and thus my overall degree result) are published tomorrow afternoon. /me cringes
  • Probably will turn up at one or more ApacheCon EU social events. Hopefully the keysigning party too, I could do with extending my WoT…

There’s not much else to report I guess, so that is all…

Bandwidth Junkie…

After a wonderful 4 days in a place without bandwidth and decent cell coverage, known to the locals as Wexford. Trip included numerous walks and trips to places including The Hook Lighthouse and Johnstown Castle.

There were numerous views and sights that would have made very good photographs, but alas my digital camera is somewhere in Poland, with my ickle brother on an interrailing trip. As a result, I’m considering acquiring a proper camera, most likely a Canon EOS350, (over my other option, the Canon EOS30D – since I may also need a quad band mobile – for when I end up in San Francisco).

Now, to get back to my week of clearing numerous To Do lists, so I can finish up various odd jobs I’ve had as a student, before I officially enter “The Real World” next Monday…

Disappearing Act…

So, finals were all over on Monday. Sleep is now slowly being recovered.

Yesterday evening, I went to see Tom Limoncelli speak to SAGE-IE. The talk and the FAQ session in the pub afterwards was quite enjoyable.

Now, in order to use my free time wisely, I’m disappearing off to the countryside until the weekend, where it is highly probable I could be killed mother nature, given my hayfever at the moment.

Something New…

So, after a few months job hunting through various connections, I am now able to say I have a new job.

In three weeks, I shall be starting as a Linux/Unix Systems Administrator in a small IT company with some interesting products and work ideas.

So, following my SQL exam next Monday, I’m going to spend then use my 2 weeks off to bum around and tidy up a few loose ends in Maths and other places, before beginning my new role.

🙂

Procrastination…

Instead of studying SQL notes as I was supposed to, I’ve just spent the last few minutes writing and testing a handy little script which automates my personal method of upgrading WordPress, using rsync to copy over only the updated files from a WordPress release to my blog installation.

Perhaps it will be useful for someone else as much as it will be for me.

Now, I have to go make up for the time I’ve wasted as I distracted myself…
