Blogging about technology and randomness since 2002

The end is nigh

In a little over 4 hours, I will have finished all of the academic work for this semester. From 3pm today, I have no more lectures, no more coursework, no more lab sessions and no more tutorials.
But before 3pm, I do have a sodding lab test on SQL. While my SQL skills aren’t too bad, I’m really not likely to get really good marks on this because I’m hopeless at things like normalisation. But I’ll try.
As you can imagine, however, I’ll be in the pub from about 3:05pm.
By the way, there are 998 comments on this blog at the moment. Anyone want to do the honours and push it into 4 figures?


  1. Choose a good pub and spend the rest of the day there 🙂

  2. Postgresql isn’t too bad. The main problem is being in linux you are without msn, and ahem, any help that may bring. Wasn’t it open book anyway?

  3. Don’t worry, I’ve spent plenty of time post-test down the pub :).
    The test was open-book, yes, and I took full advantage of it. The Linux machines do have GAIM but not a recent version so MSN wasn’t an option, and the MSN extension for Mozilla doesn’t seem to work for me.
    Of course, I could’ve logged into Windows and then use Exceed to access Linux, with MSN open in the background…
