Or at least that is what was running through my mind today when in a meeting just now with my supervisor Paul Popelier.

Last night I left work, code nicely compiled on our server, me having been debugging it using a unix X server gui.


Total fucking disaster. Bastard thing won't run even though it is the exact same executable.

"I am Jacks Screaming Code Ninja Monkey. Windows screen goes blue, I say fuck you!!!" *BLAM!!!*

I am not happy. Not in the slightest.

Other than that the meeting was a total success. I think he final understands why somedays I just can't be fucked (not a trend in the lingo here kid's) coming in early (unlike today I may add). I just feel in my bones it ain't gonna work.

Meanwhile back at the batcave....

I still have the last day of my conference to write up, pictures to post, say that it was great celebrating [profile] glittersavvy's birthday, getting such an awesome tie from her, eating more pizza, watching transformers... at the IMAX... (it so fucking huge!!!!! - Sam looking at Optimus Prime... and not me ;_; ).

Smoke me a kipper.... I'll be back for breakfast.

About time for an update... loads to say.

From the top since last post. Transformers rocked. Fuck you all if you didn't like it! Complaints I have seen are pathetic. You see yes you 'have' to have humans in it for empathy sake of those who aren't fangeeks of the toys. Also Megatron being a space jet.... so what... plot wise it makes sense rather than some piddling little fucktard gun. Also product placement too some degree makes the world 'real'. Yes your nokia or ipod may just get up and rip your face off.

Overall I loved the film. Best thing of it's type in the cinema for ages. Kinda like seeing the matrix or Jurassic Park for the first time.

No I won't be reading Harry Potter.

Train tickets in place for Infest, a B&B is booked for Whitby so all is good. Other than that I had my second year viva which was good all except me fucking up one basic question. ARRRRAAAAGHGHGHGAAAGHAGAHAG!!!!!

Also my paper has been accepted. Just got a few corrections and so forth to do. But well taken by the referees.

Now after all that ranting I must be able to find something interesting to post up as a picture???

So the paper is finally submitted. Yesterday evening Paul and I finalised the abstract and sent the paper off. Hopefully there wont be that many changes to make.

Now what's been going on???

Well it's close to moving time. Fortunately my contracts overlap by a week.

Also need to finish this second year report now.

But since the last post? Hmmm.....

Friday my presentation was solid. 3 handouts and lots of new ideas that were useful for the entire group. I like it when i get to say something profound.

Well the weekend past was going to be the medieval fayre at Tatton Park with [livejournal.com profile] glittersavvy. However the weather was crap in the morning so we went to Toy'r'us and we were awe struck by the massive Transformers display. I promptly sat before a huge Optimus Prime toy and despaired at the £40 price tag. So we sauntered about being ultra puerile and geeky and I found 2 nice Decepticons to buy.

General hanging out with [livejournal.com profile] es0terika, [livejournal.com profile] daisydoggy and others watching Marco Polo and this "ace" film called Cerberus. yay.

The rest of the week was then just spent getting this paper finished and spending a nice evening with [livejournal.com profile] glittersavvy last night, with Tuesday being drinks with [livejournal.com profile] cyberai_dan for his birthday at Socio Rehab. Rest of the week???

Well I need to finalise my conference details for August (guys in London with spare rooms that I can crash at please see the previous post with regard to where the conference is as those closer to it would be prefered places to stay.... or again any good cheap student priced hotels!). Then Saturday is Game07 with fellow gamer/geek/goff types :P and Miss Jinny presents in the evening. And Sunday is TokyoSmashup. So a great end planned for whjat has been a good week.

Right, Picture Time )
