Busy Body

  • Life’s been rather busy of late, what with the double whammy of women’s week and no smoking day yesterday, including watching two performances of Eve Ensler’s Vagina Monologues. I think I know the Vagina Happy Fact off by heart now.
  • Tonight I have what looks to be a marathon of a student union meeting and tomorrow I’m heading up to the Lake District with the hiking club for a weekend away. Consequently, things may get a little quiet around here. The server move is also happening tonight.
  • As of Wednesday next week, Hari and I will have been seeing each other for 5 months. And this weekend will be the first time in 2 months where we haven’t stayed over together. It’s only for two nights though.
  • The latest news with regards to the campus terror arrests is that one of the students arrested off-campus has been charged, along with another fellow who turned himself in a few days ago. Of those arrested in halls of residence, one has been released without charge and the other two are still being questioned by police. All students were emailed a statement from the department of marketing and corporate communications on Tuesday with the university’s official response to the arrests. Yesterday’s open day was also very quiet, as I predicted on Monday. ‘I predict a quiet’, if you will.
  • When I do get some free time, I’ll have quite a bit of software to update. ĀµTorrent has been updated to include protocol encryption, and OpenOffice.org 2.0.2 is out. Despite the version number it does introduce a number of new features, such as support for MS Word 2 and Quattro Pro 6 files, interface enhancements (especially on Linux) and better mail merge.
