My computer has been running smoothly for weeks now, which can only mean one thing: something catastrophic is about to happen. I've been getting the feeling that something bad is going to happen for a few hours now, and I'm not usually wrong when it comes to this sort of thing, so it Backup Time! Now, how does the tar command work again.....?
Over the past few days I've been trying to catch-up on my website duties, which is a rather silly thing to do when I'm also being innundated with university work. Every week I get an average of 6 questions to do as that week's homework. Not a lot, I'll admit, but still enough to keep me occupied for a good 8 hours or so. However, these past few weeks I've also had a report to write on the method used by my Skills Laboratory group when we attempted to determine the viscosity of water at room temperature (we managed to get a value with an error margin that left the real value only just outside of it, which wasn't bad - even better when you take into account the fact that the water we used was 2 degrees below room temperature, so we were happy), plus this week I've had an essay to write, on a topic of my choice. I forgot about it until 4 days before it was due in, which wasn't a good idea. Because of this I decided to do it on a topic I enjoy, instead of one I could get a huge amount of information about from the university library, which would make it easier to write about; as I'd have to think less. Still, it's done now and was only slightly over the expected number of words. Very tiring work, that - especially when you take into account how long I'd been in lectures for when I started writing it. Those things are mind-numbing.
Still, they're more useful that just sitting and reading a textbook. You can ask questions in a lecture, after all.
