So the Architecture class was canceled too. This is getting to be a habit, really. Turns out the professor messed up his laptop resolution while tinkering with XFree 4.2.1 and now it doesn't suit the datashow or something. Oh well, postponed for tomorrow anyway.

And this was a non-day. Didn't do much except for building up a small page in the university's CS department server with a little info about myself and a list of test/exam dates for the different subjects I'm into this semester. You can check it out here. Mind you that only the home page is written in english.

On a different note, let me rant a little bit about something that's bothering me. As some of you may know there's a Best Of Nirvana album scheduled for release somewhere next November. As even fewer of you know I'm a die hard Nirvana fanatic. Unfortunately, the music industry, which is so bothered about mp3 trading, peer-to-peer systems and so on and so forth, does nothing but stabbing the true fans in the back while spoon fedding the sadly ignorant kids out there. I mean, I've seen the track list for the upcoming album and I can only wonder why, oh why, it's just the Singles box plus the 'new' "You Know Your Right" song. Also, as a friend pointed out, its release date is somewhat intriguing. Or maybe not! Afterall, xmas is just around the corner so let's just release an album in November. Just in time for xmas frenzy.

I mean, honestly, this is everything that NIRVANA and Kurt Cobain always fought against. And it's just too sad that people behind this are now stabbing him in the back this many years after he left this earth. I mean, almost none of his favourite songs are listed, for Christ sake. Drain You, School, Negative Creep... the list goes on. Ah well, welcome to big corporate whatever!
