Oracle

I see the future, and it is a DBMS.

Yesterday I did my Oracle Assignment. I spent from 7pm to 2.30am on it, and then from 9am to 3pm, when it was marked. Estimated project time (according to the assignment: 25 hours.

Actual time spent on assignment: (What with lectures and hanging about waiting for marking) – about 9 hours.

Actual mark for assignment: 54%

Average mark for people who had spent the last four weeks on it: 56%

Almost makes me wish I’d started earlier

Drabble II

As I crested the hill I saw it ahead and over me.
Golden, and Red and Metallic and Dull and Beautiful
And evil. And deadly. And afraid of one thing.

Me.

And I screamed the revenge of the thousands redudced to ashes or food beneath it’s reign.

It swooped, it heard me. It knew me. The last Dragonborn, the only remaining human with the power to defeat a great Pyrowyrm.

And as it swooped I realised the error. I drew attention after it’s fueled meal.

And as the fireball sped toward me I realised.

I’d Failed Everyone.

Pure Drabble

He stood. He tried to speak.
He tried again. He could see the anger, and he could see the *reason* for the anger.
Why wasn’t he shouting?
There was the bed, his combination Girlfriend, confidant and room-mate.
There was the bed, exactly as it had always been, albeit slightly damper.
And there was the other man, looking guilty.
Carefully, he picked up the roses, box of chocolates, and gift
/maybe I can return it. Why am I still calm?/
and then he spoke:

“Carry on”

turned around, and walked out of the room, sat on the stairs.

And cried.

*Yawn*

It’s 13:18. The database (which I have mentioned before, at length) has been fixed, now without spaces where no spaces ought to be. Unfortunatly, the version updated was approximatly two weeks before the last prototype. IE, before I’d written a single line of code, and before some more of the forms were in existance and… and…

And the thing I blamed on the spaces *still* doesn’t fscking work right.

And now I want to go offline and sleep. But I’m determined to get this somewhere, at least to the point where it was before Easter.

My MP3 player is in “Chillout mode” (Dido, Verve, Belle & Sebastian, Travis and some random calm tracks from various places), to try and keep my in the comatose state needed for Visual Basic Programming (As apposed to the “Whimsy” (They Might be Giants, Lots of Divine Comedy, Monty Python) stuff I was in last night and the “Everything” state it’s in normally). Music affects my life hugely. I have music on most of the time when I’m “working” or chatting, and esspecially Travelling (I have a 32 MB MP3 Player which I intend to upgrade. V Highly recomended) I’m listening to music. (Especially for this entry, I’ve updated the music section of Aquarionics, which has a list of all the MP3’s I have, which is most of the music I own).

Yes, I’m posting lots at the moment. There is a reason for this though, I’m making the transition back to living on my own after several weeks with family and occasional friends. It isn’t easy, and the fact that I’m being snowed under with work is both helping and hindering this. Helping, because I don’t have time to even think about stopping, and hindering because I can’t change the situation (By going and meeting real people for example, simply because I have so many projects here.

Having said that, I’ve also done some basic designs for some of the personal projects I intend to do over the summer, so work isn’t taking over completely 🙂

Go Away Horrible Mountain!

I’m not panicked. Yet. Soon, I will be. I’ll be in full “I wish I’d started this earlier” mode. But there is a reason I didn’t, and that is that I have a tendancy to run when cornered. From deadlines, from situations, from people. It’s not something I like about me, I can get on stage and make a fool of myself in front of thousands, but a single person can cause me to run for the nearest exit. Anyway, so I havn’t done this project, because it was put-offable, and so I did. The *problem* with that is when I discover that the road to hell is paved with doing things late, and if all the preperation hasn’t been done, I’m screwed.

So I’m screwed 🙂

Well, not yet. But it’s possile.

Other projects (Aquarionics2, Project Cevearn, Gamabase) progress slowly. Mainly due to the fact I havn’t been here 🙂 and because I’m doing Uni Stuff. Honest 🙂

Future Hopes Dreams And Despairs

New album bought today, Dido:

My tea’s gone cold, I’m wondering why I got out of bed at all
The morning rain clouds up my window and I can’t see at all
And even if I could it’d all be grey, but your picture on my wall
it reminds me that it’s not so bad
it’s not so bad
I drank too much last night, got bills to pay
my head just feels in pain
I missed the bus and there’ll be hell today
I’m late for work again

and even if I’m there, they’ll all imply that I might not last the day

and then you call me and it’s not so bad
it’s not so bad and
I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life
Oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life
Push the door, I’m home at last and I’m soaking through and through
then you handed me a towel and all I see is you
and even if my house falls down now, I wouldn’t have a clue
because you’re near me and
I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life
Oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life
I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life
Oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life
