Easter Holiday

2 more days, then I'm off to South Africa with my girlfriend and one of her friends.

We're starting off by visiting St Lucia, then the Drakensburg mountains, with a day trip to Lesotho, then finishing with a visit to Lily of the Valley childrens home, where the girls spent 6 months as volunteers.

I'll try to add updates, and photos when we're out there.

Testing mobile posting

Apparently, you can set up your blog to receive posts sent from an email
This was sent from my mobile, if it works, it's pretty cool.

The signature it places at the bottom is annoying though.

2 Weeks, 1 Day

I've been lacking in time for updates recently, due to workload.

And laziness, in all honesty.

Today I made my appointment for my jabs, ahead of our trip to South Africa, on the 31st.

I'm now getting really excited about it.

I'll post more details of what we're doing later.

Texts to deter illegal migrants

They have some batty schemes. This is but one. I only hope they don't mess it up.

Knowing the govt, they'll probably text a bunch of WWII veterans by mistake.

I love this bit:

Home Secretary John Reid said the new policy would make life "uncomfortable and constrained" for illegal entrants.¨

Just wait for them to sue because the texts contravened their human rights by making them miserable.

Weekend Away

I had the pleasure of spending the last weekend at The Frontier Centre with the 18-30 group from my home church. We looked at Genesis, focusing on the Creation, Abraham and Joseph. 50 chapters is a lot for 3 sessions, but it was handled very well. In our free time a group of us, undeterred by mud and floods, made our way to an adventure playground we'd discovered last year in the dark. Wasn't quite as good with little kids in the way, but still.

I stayed home Sunday night, and left at 6am to drive back to uni for a 9am lecture. Made it by 8.30, had a shower, then rushed over to the campus, only to find we didn't have a lecture. Infuriating.

I'm up late, working on an ICT assignment which involves creating a browser based tutorial for Yr7 kids, to teach basic database functions. If my tutor agrees, I'll upload it for people to test out the links, iron the kinks* and generally comment on it.

At least the party animals seem to have all passed out, so I'm undisturbed

* pure poetry, even at this time of the morning.
