On the first day of June in the year of our Lord twenty-hundred and six the second chronicle of the Life of Lewis thusly began.
It was mostly like the first chronicle on the whole. However, this may change considerably as currently it has only lasted 22 minutes.
The final exam today was on hypermedia and the web; an entirely useless and stupid module that deals will, well, common sense, really. But common sense is too hard to give people low marks on, so instead they add fancy words, acronyms and "technologies" to make themselves sound good. Such words include: ontology, folksonomy, OWL, and so on. But the exam is over, and that's what counts.
Some people (HAHAHAHAHAHAHA Vuh-LAD!) have to wait until Wednesday for this great pleasure and achievement.
The rest of the day was spent attempting to return Vlad's fancy Tagan power supply to the manicly depressed Chinese kid at Micro Direct. They close at 4:30 and we got there about 5:15. He looked like he was about to slit his own throat when Vlad asked him if it would be possible. Unsatisfied we also asked the guy at the collection counter if he could do it (when collecting their cheapest PCI sound card and a 9cm fan). He said he couldn't, so we left. Fortuitously we met Rog just outside the door, who happened to be going to MD to say hi to his friend. An opportunity like this could not be passed by, so we went back in (which got us some funny looks) with Rog. It turned out that the counter guy we had already asked was Rog's mate, but this time he managed to convince Mr. Give-me-a-foot-of-thick-rope to process the return, but not without throwing some invisible eye-daggers in the general direction of everybody in the room.
Were it not for this turn of events the day could have been classified as "an utter waste of time".
With any luck today (June 1st) will be a whole new lease of life. But more importantly, I hope my new motherboard will turn up (for now I just sit on the floor with an (otherwise complete) collection of computer bits and pieces strewn around me... but more on that another day).
