What the geek is doing

You might be wondering what I'm doing when I'm not working on my operating systems lab projects. Well, I am studying for my operating systems exam. I set up a personal wiki for that purpose with Wiki on a Stick. By the way, I learned a bit of the wiki syntax, so I will most probably make a good use of it soon.

I am so looking forward for this semester to be over. The operating systems are a real pain-in-the-brain (and a legend in my school). All I wish for right now is pass. They're not my biggest passion, they don't inspire me to anything (ever wondered why there is no post here starting with "hey guys, did you know that the slab allocator..."?). How I long for some high-level programming... And some "code what you want" programming... I fortunately will have those next semester.

So the exam is tomorrow. On Friday, there's the correcting codes exam. I'll start studying revising after the OS. Today is Ash Wednesday. Fasting when you're supposed to study as hard as you can is not cool. (Okay, fasting is not supposed to be cool, by definition.) There's no milk and I can't stand coffee without it... poor little me studying computer science, forced by... er... wait... That's it! I can quit, not have to study OS and have time to buy milk! Still, there's a reason I'm much better off the way things are (better by far).


  1. Anna,
    thanks for your useful comments. I am very naive on the subject of making websites and am very interested in learning.
    How can I do what you suggeted?
    How can I make a website? Where do I start.

    my email is woaproductions.todd@gmail.com

    any advice you can give would be very much appreciated.

  2. Hi Todd,

    As I wrote you, I'd ssuggest you to start with basic HTML and CSS. With that, you'll be able to make a basic website for yourself and to customize your Blogger template so that it reflects your personality.

    There are tons of good resources about making websites. I learned from lissaexplains.com, but you may find something that suits you better on www.good-tutorials.com.
