Weekend of Study

That’s what I have ahead of me this weekend. ๐Ÿ™ After last weeks shenanigans it’s a real wake up call. I’ve got two exams for 20% of each topic next week. One of the tests requires writing code on paper from your head, a pretty daunting prospect whatever way you look at it. I’m starting to study tonight but want to get a bit of work done on Orion tomorrow.

Got a shock on Tuesday as I say a dead cat near my bus stop which I thought was one of mine. Turned out it wasn’t though but felt sorry for the owners as it didn’t look like an old cat. Anyhow will post again tomorrow.

No to War

Attended the Dublin leg of the International ‘No to War’ March on Saturday. It was the largest single march here for 20 years with up to 100,000 people taking to the streets. The atmosphere was excellent with people from all walks of life joining in and showing their support. It shows that not all people in this country are apathetic. I’ll have the digital pics I took up soon but for now check out IndyMedia.ie.

Also had a mad weekend on the social front. Went out on Saturday and Sunday nights and am still feeling the effects. ๐Ÿ™‚ Twas great craic though and myself, Dave and Mark are to appear in the local paper during the week. If I was to go into detail on the details of last night you would indeed be shocked. Till next time.

The Long Goodbye

Roy Keane finally released a statement today and confirmed my fears – he’s to retire from international football. I’ve been a Man Utd supporter for years but this decision really bewilders me. Would a few international matches really have hingered his fitness all that much? I don’t think so and it’s a major letdown for the country.

Worked a bit on a distributed applications assignment we got tonight. It’s really tough and I’ll have to put a lot of work into it tomorrow. Decided to give the Valentine’s Ball in college a miss cos I’ll be going out for my mate Mark’s birthday on Saturday. Dragging a few of the lads from college along aswell so it should be a bit of a laugh. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Friday Feeling

Had a busy one this week. Have to get a good amount of the project planning done over the weekend so I got a book out of the college library for JSP hoping that it’ll give me some sense of the architecture needed. Im not 100% on whether it’s going to be web based or app based or both.

Decision time is looming though. It’s called Orion and will hopefully be an open source directory available via web services so it gives an extra method of syndication. Anyhow, haven’t got much planned for the weekend aside from maybe going to the cinema. Seeya next week.

Roy’s Return

Heard in the paper today that Alex Ferguson is recommending that Roy Keane doesn’t make a comeback for Ireland. Although I’m a long term Man Utd fan I think Fergie’s decision is selfish. Keane has at least another couple of years left in him at international level and to be frank, we need him. ๐Ÿ™‚

Set up a couple of other things today to do with the site. I fixed and emailed out notices about the college forums which will hopefully get a lot of members over the next week. I’ll need to get a team of mods together pronto to administer it. I’ll also be keeping a log for my final year project in another category so check that out. Seeya next time.
