Winter-een-mas has started

Today marks the first day of this years Winter-een-mas. For those who don't know what it is, then go and read Ctrl-Alt-Del, one of the best online web comics around created by Tim Buckley.

In short though, winter-een-mas is a week long celebration of games and gaming. You can celebrate by doing anything to do with gaming that you desire. At the moment, I am just playing copious amounts of games as a celebration and relief at the end of exams.

For more information about winter-een-mas, head over to and start reading the comic archive.

Exams are over

Well, thats my exams over and done with for now. I had 4 of them, of which 3 went fairly alright and 1 went pretty badly. I will post up some breakdowns of the exams when I get the results back :)

In other news, I'm about to start on my next 2 modules for my final year of university. One of them needs me to have a blog set up as the main area they are looking at this year is social applications. If you fancy heading over there and looking at my coursework submissions on the subject of Interactive Systems Design, then feel free :P The link has been added to the side bar.

New Year, New Blog

Well, its now 2007, and I decided I would finally get around to starting a blog. I have no idea what will appear here yet, but I expect it will consist of several long rambling posts about my views on sci-fi, games programming, fantasy books, and just about anything else that catches my attention for fleeting moments of time (such as, at the moment, this blog :P)

Chances are that, if you are here, you already know me. If you dont then be warned: I am a 21 y.o. computer science student in the last year of my degree . I am pedantic, opinionated, and very very geeky. Please bear that in mind while making comments and reading any other articles I may get around to posting ;)

Thats it for now. Hopefully I will think of something more interesting to post soon though :P
