Been a while since I heard from you.. you should stop by IRC sometime - yes I still spend half my idle time there! My Uni course is going good, lots of great lectures for people new to programming and I'm learning new stuff of course.
I wish I could make it to a lan sometime but without any transport I'm kind of stuck up here
. I finally got myself a job over the net, working tech support / server admin for an ISP (the one on which r1ch.net is hosted unsurprisingly!) - basically I just arse around in my spare time with AIM open and do support requests when they come
Hopefully I'll see you guys at a LAN sometime within the next eternity
EDIT: Oh god, these default smilies are hideous.
