week 9

It's Firday morning, the earliest I've ever managed to be in the library for. And I'm very happy.

Very happy for several reasons:

  1. I've finally let go the idea of that hand scanner being of any use, and its packaged up ready to be sent back to amazon. Never ever buy one of these.

  2. I manage to get a bucket load of work done yesterday- the only day i've been in with the bank holiday, but s superhuman typing effort got at least two days work done!

  3. I went round my new house last night, and my rooms (so small i get two) weren't as bad as i remembered, and it's such a sweet house too.

  4. At 2pm today i should officilaly belong to the sociology department, have a meeting with politics undergrad director, who will sign me away, then i'll nip up to university house, hoping everyone is back from holiday and get the transfer completed.

  5. The sun is shining.

Read one and a half of the books i took out on friday (last week) on Tuesday and they were really helpful as i thought they would be. I came in for an hour on wedndesday; to test the scanner so you can imagine how bad a day that was, only by imagining how crap the scanner is!

But its ended up alright.

  1. Glad to see things are starting to sort themselves out. If it's any consolation, it took me six months to get round to submitting my PhD proposal – I can't stand forms either.

    I'm curious about what the problem is with the hand scanners – they seemed like a good idea when you mentioned them earlier. Don't they work very well?

  2. The scanning is not the problem, i was able to get really good quality scanned images, the software, however, couild not translate these into editable text Hello Bob would become /-/@//o ;3o/. You can see it trying, but its not smart enough to recognise words and make the leap between scanning and translating the image into text.
