I really ought to update it from time to time, eh? …
Oh course to do that I have to remember at least something of what's been going on since my last post.
Well, one of the highlights was going to a robotics conference in Dublin back in November. (Was it really that long ago?) Good day out and I saw some interesting presentations. You got to love any presentation where they use a clip from the Mythbusters.
and Pt. 2 with the really cool slow motion
Of course some of you will be wondering what would happen if they aimed Leonardo 2.0 at a person. Luckily Adam and Jamie already thought of that.
Aside from that I've been mainly busy with college. The year has just been flying along, not helped by the fact that we're going off on a work placement at the beginning of March. As usual there a bit of a rush coming up to the Christmas break to make sure everything is on schedule and assignments have been done.
I'm off now until the 19th of January. Mad I know, but it partly due to the placement and partly from the college switching to a semesterised system this year. My year is the last on the old system, otherwise I'd be doing exams this week. As it is, we'll have three more weeks of lectures when we get back and then our finals.
Not that I'll be dossing for the month (month?!? :eyes: I still can't quite believe that) I have off. The instructors made sure we'll be kept busy with some large programming projects and an exam the first day we get back. I don't mind too much, they actually sound fun, though I'm not going to look at them until next week.
In the meantime, I'm going to try to get over the dose I've picked up. Some sort of stomach bug :yuck: And the less said about that the better. I'm also working my way through my watch list. It got to an impressive size there before I started clearing it, you are such a prodigious bunch. 😉
BTW, have any of you been surprised by the speed of Christmas post this year? A parcel from Vancouver arrived to us in just five days. That's the fastest I can remember at any time of the year.
I'm sure there's stuff I've forgotten, at least that guarantees another post fairly soon.
