Darkness on the Edge of Town

Well, my least favourite day of the year is here. It's dark and cold outside, and it's back to work tomorrow after a week off. Colour me unimpressed.

I finished off Unit 4 of M255 this afternoon with an interesting consolidation exercise and some bits about code re-use and encapsulation which proved to be food for thought. I'm about three weeks ahead of schedule now and when I've done the next unit I'll be able to do the rest of the TMA 01 in plenty of time. Apparently there's an open day coming up soon, so I think I'd like to go and talk to an adviser about whether I should sign up for the 60 point course I want to do starting in February next year.

In Pocket Frogs news, I've managed to breed a habitat full of Lanternas with a pumpkin backdrop for the Halloween themed challenge, and I was also pleased to find that a bit of random cross-breeding had produced a rare Chroma that changes colour. Shiny!

Why is Halloween your least favorite day of the year?

Your frogs are very cute.

It's not Halloween - it's when the clocks go back and it's dark in the evenings. Have you tried Pocket Frogs on your iTouch yet? It's great fun and strangely addictive.

Oh, I hate the time change, too. But it doesn't coincide with Halloween. It must be coming up soon, but I don't know when.

I haven't downloaded Pocket Frogs yet - it sounds like one that Anthony will immediately take away from me. :-)

I have frogs now, and Anthony immediately appropriated the game.
