tinman spent a few years mucking around industry before going back to school for a Masters. Currently not enjoying the weather in North England..

He wrote Perl that looked suspiciously like C code in 1998, while working as an intern, and has been trying to cure that bad habit ever since.

charging towards the finish line

[ #20988 ]

interesting but perhaps obvious... when I really get into something, everything else, including keeping track of time goes out of the window. I've missed this level of absorbtion in something for a while now..Most of these days are spent writing thesis pages, drawing pretty graphs and diagrams and generally being busy.

Wondering about abandoning the Win32 desktop when I finish the thesis. I've used Windows as my primary desktop for all save 18 months of my computing experience thus far. I use Linux as a server, I am comfortable enough using a desktop in Linux to comment about KDE and Gnome; though I prefer XFCE. But recently, I've been taking stock of what software I will miss in moving fulltime to Linux. Turns out, there is less to miss than I previously imagined. Of course, I'd still need a dualboot to play games, but, but, but ... tempting. Having a nice usable and programmable command shell is certainly a huge plus.
