Moved into my new home for the next ten weeks on Sunday, didn't get net access until Monday due to some absent mindedness on my part (forgot my own cat5 cable, and didn't get to the shop in time). University net access is good, apt-get runs just as fast as if it was running from a local mirror. Timetable starts tomorrow, and an exam Wednesday (need to get 80% on each of the four sections to pass, and it is 20% of one of the modules I'm taking this year). So far, I have managed to keep my room reasonably tidy.
Yesterday evening, I added write support to the VFS (for external files only). The VFS lacked this before as hardly any of the code needed to write to anything. Also started making the dispatcher code less of a quick-n-dirty, proof of concept hack.
Yes, I have been outside my room.
