Not been around HuSi/K5 so much recently. I got into them largely due to working at home to my own schedule and having no daytime social contact. Back in an office now and there's suddenly so little time.
Interestingly, I'm reading HuSi far more these days. It seems a lot of work keeping up with the K5 soap opera but HuSi is far better for dipping in and out. K5 as psycho date to HuSi as bootycall?
The new job has made me realise working in Java has poisoned my mind. I used to love being the anal retentive C language lawyer. At a recent review meeting I heard the comment "This construct [if (foo)] relies on the default C condition of true being non-zero which is not the case on some embedded compilers" which filled me with utter despair.
So I've worked with Java and been enjoying playing with Python. How does one get a job in either when all your experience is C in embedded systems? Seems there's fuck all chance of doing anything but C where I am. Ho hum, I'll learn Python by writing a GPLed collaborative media engine or something for my entertainment and CV.
Dear Hulver, if I must prepend an href with http:// plz make error message clearer also possibly put error messages in red omgkthxbye
Moved (back) to Cambridge. Spending much time commuting, so little time to actually go out and see the few friends I have here. Must get car. Must learn to drive. Growing up with London's transport system has left me incapable of functioning effectively anywhere else in the country.
Cambridge being full of students, the chances of finding a boyfriend seem tiny. Now being ten years older than freshers means that dating any would be a Jesus Juicetm scenario. London is only a 48 minute train ride away, but that's far enough to make a decent relationship very difficult. Ah well, I got an XXL membership so at least I can spend Saturday night getting pissed and dancing like a tit with the big boys for slightly less money. Maybe go tonight. Hmm.
I'm so getting tired of building a life and then throwing it away to move cities for a new job. Seems that long term the choices are settle in the South East or get a new career. Being a sparky doesn't sound too bad - it's just surviving while training could be hard.
Mum dogsat a puppy and fell in love. Puppy now adopted, christened Dougal. Far better than the cat we never agreed a name for and ended up calling Cat. Can you imagine what people thought when we would call him in from the street?
This being HuSi, picture follows:
