I'm a Christian husband currently finishing a Software Eng degree and wondering what God's plan for my life is. I sleep soundly in the knowledge that time will assuredly answer that question with little effort on my part.

As time goes by...

And so passed my first job interview. All at the expense of a couple of hours and a class or two. It went reasonably well, and I'll find out just how well by early June. But I can't tell you any more than that ; I'm sure the men in brown trenchcoats are already reading this blog. It's OK, I'll check my analytics logs later.

And now we return to our regular programming, which is a lecture on patent law from two representatives from Freehills Patent and Trade Mark Attorneys. Hopefully will be useful information for my upcoming essay.

Order is restored

Just in case you were getting really worried about how I'd cope without a laptop, the in-warranty replacement hard drive arrived the other day and tarantula is back on his feet (so to speak) running Ubuntu 8.04 like it's never been run before. I've finally taken the real plunge and am slowly extricating myself from the world of Windows. Although tarantula does currently run XP, it's through the relative safety of a VirtualBox. Meaning I can have my cake and eat it too, and run Office 2007 right alongside gvim, tuxracer and gnome's prettiness.

If you haven't heard about the free desktop revolution, you should go find out.
