To Do for December 2008 - Revisited

This is my brief todo list for December 2008 revisited, also known as the first vacation I’ve had since I started college.

  1. Build the new PC I bought and get Windows Vista Ultimate (Super Fantastic) Media Center running.
  2. Turn 21 and become a drunkard overnight (hah). (T-minus 2 hours)
  3. Reinstall the laptop to repartition the operating systems. In the process of this, also install Ubuntu 8.10. (Still haven’t done this… will wait till I’m done with a few things.)
  4. Play a lot of video games. (Bought the two Guild Wars expansions, Factions and Nightfall)
  5. Sleep… this hasn’t been consistently done in a long time. (Still need more of this)
  6. Learn C++ better, especially proper template design. (Heh, this is work, haven’t started on that yet.)
  7. Finish leftover things for my bioinformatics research work. That is, build a database for the organisms for doing phylogenetic classification. Maybe play more with SVM’s…  (Same as 6)
  8. Sleep more. (Working on it)
  9. Play more games. (Working on this too)
  10. Setup the new Roku Soundbridge M1001 I bought for my parents for Christmas. (Have to return the one I ordered and wait till they have more of these available….)

There are probably other things that should be on here… like my senior project work. I suspect I’ll start that Tuesday as tomorrow is my birthday and I will be eating and drinking merrily.
