Research of Moths

So it's been a long time since I last programmed anything for the codling moth project. You know what? That really sucks. I was hired as a programmer and all I've done over the last 4 months is mathematical analysis. I don't know math, I know my program. My professor told me she wasn't hiring me for mathematical skills, which is good because I still don't have them. I just want to get back to programming.

I've got Redhat Enterprise, as supplied by my professor. So I can now take my research home with me (well, when I install Redhat and get it dual booting with my existing WinXP). I'm looking forward to that, getting Redhat working.

-Half-Life 2 a second time around is just as fun!

This is fun, I just have to share my thoughts. I'm at work now, it's 8:24am. This was the only lab monitoring shift that would fit into my schedule (that I was hired for). Funny, I applied for 5 shifts and the two that I originally got assigned to conflicted with classes. So I cancelled those and applied for an early morning shift. Hey, I need some cash flow.

Now I'm sitting here at 8:25am and waiting for some downloads to finish. I figured I'd give Half-Life 2 DeathMatch a try. Why not, what can it hurt. It'll take up some hard drive space and I'll rarely play it. For that matter, I'm re-downloading Codename: Gordon. I'll try to finish it this time.

First day back

I've finished my first day of semester 2, year 3 at University. Today was the first day I had a notebook computer to write my notes in at school, as well. It was fun. I played Half-Life 2 during my breaks (Awesome game, I finished it last night and am playing it again on HARD difficulty). The notebook is definately a nice toy to have. I also picked up Redhat Enterprise from my professor, so I can get that going on my computer and take my research home with me. Now I think I'm going to join my girlfriend and lay down for a nap. It was a long day.
