Busy weekend

Work, work, work.

Well, I've managed to bring back my backlog of e-mail and news to manageable levels, although I still need to read through several Jabber mailinglists. Working away the backlog has been a little more difficult because I have spent a lot of time in my new apartment.

So far, we have been doing a lot of preparation work, helped out by our parents and also my brother Menno. But painting has commenced and we are really getting somewhere. One drawback is the ceiling. It turns out the previous occupant applied chalk instead of latex and this has to be removed. All of it. But that ought to be done by the apartments owner, not by me. I hope to speak to them about it tomorrow.

Tomorrow I'll be at Philips again, working on my Masters' Project for the next 3 months. There's still a lot to do, but I'll manage. But that leaves only evenings and weekends for working in my apartment and hopefully some free time as well. Probably not very much time to hack on Jabber, unfortunately.

Expect light blogging.
