Grated Cheese

Sometimes its Brie, sometimes its Kraft, either way its still cheese.

Hey guys, its been a busy week, and I have not really had a moment when I could be bothered. I probably shouldn't try to do what Jason is trying to do and live off my blog.
So whats new in my life? Well I have changed my dissertation for definite now, its going to be a summer of learning Apache, PHP and MySQL now.

See the related link for my latest project, "The 6 Week Project"
A photo a day, trying to get some sort of glimps into my life though the medium of photo. At the moment I am still trying to get the hang of it and often forget to take my (slightly dodgy now) Canon Powershot A70 with me. You will be able to tell which days I have done that on by the fact that the picture is taken in my room, and usually about 11-12pm.

Cambridge students finally got back to uni this weekend, at last!!
My desktop PC is on its last legs I think. Not sure how, but something has gone in it which is really annoying, and frequently like now I am typing faster that its appearing on the screen in front of me.
I have started trying out using Open Office (OOo) on my laptop and am quite liking it, also as I don't use the outlook calendar on my laptop I have installed Thunderbird and synced it with my spam gmail account. Its quite nice.

In a crazy attempt to avoid doing more work, I might come up with a new design for this site, or at least make it more standards and browser happy. This site for example is the kind of theme I am aiming for, something that is nice to read and look at.

Anyways, I need to be in bed BEFORE midnight tongith, as I havn't managed that for days now.
Soo good night all
Might (and its only a might) blog some during tomorrows lecture (if I can get a connection in there that is)

Grr, what a mad day I have had.
Bought a new phone (a Nokia 1100) as my old phone (the nokia 3330) would die about 30 seconds into any call made on it. It had finally become unusable, so it had to go.

But then when I got back into uni for my 12 noon lecture, I find out that the guy taking the module has resigned from the uni for personal reasons and wasn't coming back. Which is annoying on many levels, firstly it means that the uni now has to find a replacement lecturer to cover this module, and the replacement certainly will not know what we have done or what was planned. The other problem, and by far the biggest, is that the guy who has left was the guy I had planned to have as my dissertation leader. This is a problem as I am now without a leader and without a project (because the project was in his specialised subject) Yay!
No worries, pressure or stress though, I only have to hand in a draft propsal for said project by Friday!
I have a few ideas that I could possibly use, but I have to decide far to soon.

Ohh I said that I would do some quick movie reviews, (and here is hey I am not doing media studies)
Shaun of the Dead-Hilarious, comedy and zombie film in once. One to watch.
The Job-Looked good, was really rubbish. Simple as that. Don't watch this, its poo.
Jet Li-The Legend - The name says it all.
Kill Bill-Vol1 - Loved it. Sweary, violent, funny, over top in the right places. Quality. Only watch if you don't mind gory.
Kill Bill Vol 2 - Possibly better than the first, but a different type of film. Great ending to the whole story. Also very gory (like someones eye being pulled out) but awesome.
Layer Cake - I loved "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" and I loved "Snatch" and I love "Layer Cake" all in the same kind of vein. A must watch.

I think they are all the films I watched and I can't think of much else to write, but I have one or two little projects in the pipe line that I might get to announce in the coming weeks.
Dave out for now
