Exam time + new laptop
It is exam time again. Need to do a lot of work for them, but feel terribly unmotivated. I'm almost feeling resigned to my fate on the first one, software systems engineering. Advanced database systems should be okay, assuming I get through my revision in time and do some past papers, same goes for human computer interaction 2. HCI is a lot more waffly and is common sense, so it should be okay.
In other news, I bought myself a new laptop, a lovely ultra-portable Sony Vaio, PCG-Z600LEK. I need to get more RAM for it and install Debian
on it, but apart from that, no major problems with it. The keyboard is annoying (small shift keys) and the speakers are tinny, but it is yummy.
I have to go to the library now. First exam is on Monday.
