It’s amazing how six months can pass so quickly, which incidentally is the release cycle period of the Gnome desktop environment. Last week saw the release of Gnome 2.10 and although I haven’t had a chance to upgrade yet the reviews are looking very positive. Everythings basically been polished up and better organised by the looks of things but this can only every been a good thing and I look forward to even better things to come in future releases!

This is my last week in Durham before I return home for the Easter holidays (all 5 weeks of it!!) but before I get to excited I have to keep reminding myself of the pile of project and revision work which awaits me! Yesterday I had an A0 (i.e. very big) version of my project poster printed, it looks pretty good stuck on my wall right now (if I do say so myself!).

Do you remember the cool Honda adverts which featured a series of mechanical devices setting each other off in sequence, apparently taking 606 takes to shoot (allegedly)? Now some enterprising folks have put together their own ‘contraption‘ in a similar (but not quite so slick) vain. Take a look at the videos on both sites, really nutty-professor stuff 🙂
