Away 20th - 24th

I will be off down to Cov for the entire week, to generally socialise and stuff. Since multiple companies are sucking heavily with regards to something as simple as getting a PSU to me, the computer I am taking may or may not actually have a PSU in it when I take it. I'm willing to bet it wont. The upshot of this is that I may have significantly limited access to anything Internet-like for a few days, but damn well better be on-line by Wednesday.

Contacting

Since I wont be taking my laptop, twpol.dyndns.org will stay up and fully functioning (bearing with issues like ADSL going pop), and all the usual contact methods will work as good as they ever do.

Note: It seems warwickcompsoc.co.uk has died as of 12:22AM UK BST, suspected to be heatstroke. That wont be back until last morning Monday I suspect.

Marking

I have a mostly working line marker! It's not perfect (when it appears, it doesn't scroll the line into view, meaning it is really hard to tell when it is occuring to the unfocused view), but it works for the most part. Still got some issues with scrollDown and force to sort out...

Purty Pictures

Ever wondered what download rate the top extensions on Mozilla Addons get? How much it varies by hour/day? Even which are rising and which are falling?

Well, now you can.

(Yes, I was bored. Very bored.)

BFL - June 19th to 23rd

So it's that time of year again, when I disappear for an entire week to spend it in a room full of 55 other computer 'freaks' and generally have a good time (that's play games and socialise, before anyone gets any weird ideas!).

PPM and CPAN

The past few days I've been building up my own PPM (ActiveState Perl Package Manager) repository, which basically involves downloading CPAN packages, building them, testing, then packaging up the built code. It's really not fun, as plenty of CPAN packages fail to build, or fail tests, and generally cause problems. Still, it's getting there. The aim, what there is of one, is to have all the packages needed for Task::Catalyst and the new CompSoc website project. I think the website will be finished before my repo. is. :(

Summer Break

It's that time of year again. I will be away from Monday (25th) to Friday (29th), enjoying the annual mega LAN.
