I have (re)started at the university, studing math. I have tried in the past to study math while studing computer science.. but then all my focus is on computers. This time I want to be sure I don't loose focus. I like math.. just that programming is more interesting.

This friday I got a programming job where I am supposed to help implement an economical model for shipping companies. So 3 days for job, 2 days for school, so I am pretty busy at the moment (no remaining time for hacking). I wonder when my AEditor project drop from its 100% activity-level at rubyforge (I haven't done any commits for a long time now). Actually I went to my bank this wensday to talk about a study-loan, and I decided to think about the loan.. so it was really luckily that I got that job.. otherwise I would have been screwed.

This summer I went on a 3 week long vacation to the US, where I drow from Seattle to San Francisco. It was very interesting. I have talked with some ruby people to meet (Chad Fowler, Phil Thomsen), but I first had a chance to go online when we got to San Francisco, because we went camping.. So we never had a chance to meet. It was a nice trip.. I would really have liked to go to Oscon, but maybe next time I will have more luck with it.

When I got home I made a GUI-frontend for AEditor, that uses fxruby. Somehow I managed to add syntax coloring, and still maintain good speed (even though its written entirely in Ruby).
