Moving

It sucks. I can't believe I do it every term. I spent the better part of this week packing my stuff, cramming it into my sister's Tercel, and dropping it off at a storage locker. I think the most impressive was when I got my entire bed, frame and futon, into the car, along with several boxes and a bike. I never knew Tercels could do that :)

I managed to sucker one of my friends into keeping both my computer and our file server at his place. Once he saw the music collection, it wasn't hard to convince him :) So I should be able to get at all of it while I'm down south, and my web page should still work. Anybody know any good streaming music servers? I think I used icecast when I was in England, is it still the best way to go?

School

My next exam is tomorrow. It's physics, and should be easy. I'll have to study a bit, but not much.

I'm currently procrastinating writing a paper for my music course. The prof extended the deadline so we could just hand it in at the exam (which, for that course, is on Monday). The extended deadline is, as always, a mixed blessing. I'm sure glad I didn't have to write the stupid thing while finishing up my real-time project, though.

Montréal

Had a great time seeing a bunch of you NITIots last weekend. It was good to catch up with you and rest a bit.

While sitting here procrastinating, I came across some photos from the summer that I don't think I posted before, but which brought back some good memories...

WvMAPI

I intended to get in on the hackfest with wlach, but with moving and packing and everything, didn't quite manage it. Anyway, it's my intention to do some work on WvMAPI in my free time over the next term, for my "NDF" at Google. I'd like to do all the async stuff I talked about in my work report, add in the attAttachment stuff, and write some EPlugins for Evolution.

Some might say I'm insane, but I really want the satisfaction of cleaning it up, and I've gotten a number of winmail.dat attachments lately, so that's sort of prodded me along.
