Ah snow… how I love you. You make things pretty and romantic. You make it possible for me to go skiing. You give me excuses to stay in all day and do nothing but drink hot chocolate and sit infront of the proverbial fire (aka, TV).
And yet… I hate you. You make drivers in Vancouver turn into complete and utter morons with no sense of the word “grip”.
If you’ve been following the computers tracked by Hamachi in the sidebar, you’ll notice that Executor’s been removed from the list, and it’s been replaced by Virago. Executor was my trusty Dell laptop that I’ve had for about two and a half years. I had packed that thing across the world and back, used it for school, and just about everything else.

Last week I finished off the last of my 8 exams this term. Yes, eight. So far, I’ve passed all of them, which is the most important, since that’s all I need to graduate and then continue on with my studies next year for my Masters.
So now, I get to relax for a bit and kick back and do just about nothing. Next week, I get to play with about $90,000 worth of computers, setting up a computing cluster for the research group I’ll be working with next year. You can see our news postings here, and even follow up on what I’ve been doing.
I’m also trying to find a good CMS. Something that will let me properly organize all of my blog postings, news clips, and other content on the site. Hell, if I can’t find one I like, I just might make one myself.
So… I’ve only got about three weeks left of my undergrad. I’m really dying here. I just want it all to be over.
Things that await me this summer:
- Setting up a 20 node computing cluster (each node has 8 cores)
- Scuba Diving trip to the Red Sea
- Month long Europe trip with friends
- Starting on graduate studies work
- Road trip with my girlfriend
So… you can see that I’ve got a whole lot more things that I’d rather be doing than the end of this degree. Grumble…
My friend sent me this video a couple of days ago. I put it up on Google Video for all to enjoy.
