Finally got my copy of the Crossroads of Twilight, Robert Jordan's 10th in the series.. YAY!! Heard that its a yawn, no plot advances, yadda yadda BOO!! Just had time to read the first 50 or so pages last night before I went to sleep, seems ok, thus far..
For some weird reason, Phoenix seems to crash when it tries rendering certain sites.. very strange.. this means I cant completely do without IE just yet (I need it for Hotmail, for example.. wonder if I can install the UA toolbar and "persuade" entry *evil grin*)
Sent off LOTS of emails to prospective supervisors in 3 different universities yesterday.. I really want to sort out a topic before I go through with the rest of the application procedure.. strangely enough, no one has replied yet (am I being too impatient, expecting replies inside 2 days ? quite possible, I belong to the "instant gratification" crowd) I hope using my Yahoo mail address isnt triggering off someones spam filter *yikes* Anyone who lives in the UK or knows of good universities for Comp Sci. in the UK, please let me know.. I'm trying to do a Masters by research thingie for one year
Followed the thread about PAR (davorg).. neato. Some of the people that I write code for at work dont want to know about installing modules either..
