10:35 am - CNPS
Yes, that stupid addictive game. (I'm out of the game) It took me a week to see a 13, which I finally got yesterday. Now I'm looking for a 14, and today I have seen two 13s and a 15. The god of Chaos hates me.

CNPS score: 13

05:53 pm - Thursday
On Thursday, I went to London and came back with a job. It's 37.5 hours a week, £6 an hour, work from home research (phone calls, internet). It starts Monday and finishes on the 9th of September, three days before I start my job with the comp-sci dept. Hurrah!

CNPS score: 12

02:39 pm - Poem
Here's a little poem I just thought up:

I push her red lips against mine,
Her sweet tang envelops me.
Nothing can surpass,
Eating a strawberry.

Hope you like it. I've been eating strawberries. I have a horrible headache which nothing will shift, but strawberries seem to be working! Maybe it's the sugar. Eating strawberries is a lot like kissing, and the bit you are eating is most definitely female. It's funny when you think about the original function of what you're eating.

CNPS: 12

11:32 am - Stupidity
So I'm sat in front of my computer, and I finally decide to plug my speakers back in since we moved them to watch star wars. I plug the transformer into the mains, and into the base unit. I plug the left speaker into the left hole, the right speaker into the right hole, and the "remote" (wired) into the remote hole. I turn it on, it makes that deadened sound that speakers do when you give them power. I try to play some music, to no avail. Why is it not working? The light is on, the volume is up... What have I forgotten? Take a guess. I have forgotten to connect my speakers to my computer.

CNPS score: 9
Current Mood: cheerfulcheerful

08:34 pm - It starts...
Some of you may have heard of CNPS, or Consecutive Number Plate Spotting. If not, look here for the rules. I knew I would be doomed as soon as I saw a "1", and today it has happened. Now I will spend my life with my eyes at numberplate level, hoping for the next one I need. Here's a picture of me with my first:

And my second:
Claire by numberplate ANT2

I have since seen 3 and 4 but the vehicles were in motion so I decided not to try to get a picture with them!

Current score:4 -- I'll be keeping a tally every time I post from now on, so that I have a record of where I have got to. I am also registered on this website, which will have the most up to date record of my score. If you see a car parked in a residential area with a number I'll soon be needing, let me know!

For all those Christian fundamentalists who claim the bible is the actual word of God: Which bible? (link no longer works)

That is all.

02:07 pm - Who's stupid? I'm stupid!
So, I bring my essay to campus in PDF format. I print it and hand it in. It turns out the lecturer wants it emailed also, and at this point he says he wants it in .zip format. I move a .zip of the file to my M:\ drive, and go and have lunch.

When I come back, I have a new email, saying he now wants the PDF as it is after all. First, I look on my M:\ drive. Only a .zip there. I logout and in again this time with my USB drive attached. Somehow the original PDF has gone missing. I panic and go to the computer from which I printed it on the offchance it's still there.

Then I think of extracting it from the .zip that I had all along, which would have been pretty useless if that were not possible. DUH!

I think I'm not with it today. In other news Lynda Rollason may have a summer placement for me! She is going to the company (whoever they are) and wanted my CV (which I still couldn't seem to send as a .doc, kept bouncing and complaining about malformed MIME types or something.) I sent her a .zip. It's being a zippy/unzippy day, really.

10:54 am - That'll do...
Dear "MELTON, Claire Elizabeth",

This is an automated email to give you your first assignment result for CS23710.
Please PRINT this message for your records as you will get no other notification of
your grade.

Your grade was: A+

Best regards,

Dave Price.

What can I say, I followed the instructions. Pity it's only 5% of my module.

Dear Melton, Claire,

This is an automated email to give you your second assignment result for CS23710.
Please PRINT this message for your records as you will get no other notification of
your grade.

Your grade was: A

Comments (if any) that you may find useful:
"Excellent work. To improve the code you could have had functions to calculate
st, lbs, oz rather than having lots of repeating code in the ask() and
makeoutput() functions. "

This assignment was marked by Jo Walker to a marking scheme specified by Dave Price.

Best regards,

Dave Price.

Oh well, I did think about that but never got round to it. The same piece of code is in a function all of its own in assignment 3, so that's at least one mark I'll get!

So the two together total 20%, I've handed in a further 30%, just the 50% project to go. Something about a line-editor. It is a little unfair that we had 5 1/2 weeks to do the 30% part, but have 3 weeks to do the 50% part. Oh well.

Hmm, gonna do a bit of useful stuff today, since I have the day off. Send forms, pay debtors, that sort of thing. Phone rang this morning when I was in bed, but I didn't get there in time and they didn't leave a message. If it was you, call again!

See you all around...
Current Mood: awake
