That’s what I plan to do over the Christmas holidays. A small sample:
- Starting to learn guitar: Have been putting that off for 6 months.
- Watch the mountain of DVDs I bought. Still suprised at how many I seem to have amassed.
- Get Windows reinstalled on the PC and finally see if I can get the front USB ports working. 🙂
Of course, over the holidays I’ll be spending lots of time with friends and family. Included in that will be the wedding of my cousin and an Aslan gig in the Point. I’m chuffed with the time off as, even though I don’t have the worst job in the world, the New Year is set to be quite tough for our project. The new site is due by March and there’s tons of content and system specification to be done in the interim. More updates on that as they occur.
I’ve also been falling behind with my blog reading. Most of the time is spent catching up on the bigger blogs such as Boing Boing, Lifehacker and Irish Blogs. I’m beginning to wonder if I should drop a couple of them though as they eat time and having 200 odd posts from one “blog” is a bit ridiculous.
It looks like WordPress 2.0 has been delayed slightly. It was due for release yesterday but the lead devs decided to delay it until the 26th to allow people to enjoy Christmas. Considering it’s a voluntary project, I’m suprised the guys are even hitting that timeline. Fair play though as they are highly committed and it looks like an excellent update. I was going to install the release candidate but I reckon I may hang on. The majority of my plugins work with it so upgrading will hopefully go smoothly.
Finally, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all who read this.
