Lots to say tonight! Two weeks have passed and I did lot of things:

University Got my exams right! There was a 'Unix practicing' test, whose first answer was 'man ls', get it?

Gaming Forced to install Zin2k on my box for a research job (real-time video processing, more on this later) I finally play games again. I finished Hitman 2, Silent Assassin in about 1 week. I recommend it to anybody willing to become a professional criminal, it is very though sometimes to not get caught by all these bad guys out there ;)

Mathematics I wrote a logical propositions validator in OCaml, as my teacher suggested us (he works on Coq). That was nice to brainstorm a little for school as I didn't do that for almost 2 years. For those interested, here's the first version.

Genea Advancing... I just got the french translation right, but wasted a lot of time because of a boost::shared_ptr misuse. Now I keep my eyes wide opened.

A gift I offered a Wacom Intuos2 A5 tablet to my brother, so he's very happy. I did not have much time to test it as he's drawing with it all the time now, but it works nicely with The Gimp (I'll publish his productions someday).

Movies Monthy Python's Meaning of Life is still a lot of fun, especially the Catholism/Protestantism scene (All sperm deserves attention...). Out Cold was funny too although i do not think it could have been more caricatural.
