Aweh Vac-week. no Aweh Durban. March 27, 2011 at 7:41 PM

Time has gone faster than usual, as usual. 😛 The first term of University is over for me, so we have a nice week long break before the beginning of the second term of the first semester. Assuming I passed all my tests this term I guess I’m 1/16th of the way towards my degree 😀
Moving on, I decided it would be to expensive and a bit pointless really to travel all the way back home for the vac-week, yet most of everyone I have met here have gone to their respective homes for the holiday… I guess that just gives me some nice down time to catch up on my urge’s to MAKE something! 😀
I do however have a few activity’s planned; next weekend I should be attending the Subaru Owners Club Dyno Day to hav a play with some other Scoobys and meet some new people 😀 Also, last night I attended the open evening at the SAAO – (South African Astronomical Observatory?) which was AWESOME, Definitely going there again, first time I have actually seen the rings of Saturn through a telescope. 😀 😀

This last week I received 3 MSP430 Launchpads from Texas Instruments! 😀

Since I haven’t yet given in (although I think the time is fast approaching…) and bought some Arduinos, these are going to be the first dev boards I’v played with and I have some interesting little ideas for projects so keep checking back. 😉

In other news my flat mate and I went out today and bought a microwave! 😀 you dont realize how important such item is until you dont have one for 2 months 😛 Now we just need to get ADSL!!! which has turned out to be a mission as usual… hopefully they are coming to install soon, because 3G just doesn’t have enough cap to get me through the month!!! 🙁
