I actually can't think of a single thing which might be happening this month that might be of any interest at all. I've settled into my uni routine now and even though I don't enjoy the 6:30am wake-ups I am starting to get used to them again. I've already finished one coursework assignment and have three more that need to be completed. Thankfully I still have a while yet before any of them are due.

Well, that about sums up this month. Exciting, I know. Here's a nice song to make up for the lack of content here this month:

The Attack of the Spider - 05/10/11

After getting ready this morning I was sitting in my room waiting to leave for my bus when all of a sudden I turned around and saw a HUGE spider sitting on the wall right next to my bedroom door. For those if you who don't know, I have a pretty big fear of spiders once they pass a certain size and this thing was a monster. It took me a couple minutes before I could actually leave the room and then ask my mum (I know, I'm a pussy) to get rid of it. Then I left for my bus.

When I got home I took out some anti-spider spray that I obtained some time last year and it seemed to work back then so I have sprayed it all over the possible entrances to my room. Here's to hoping that it works again, because I can't stand being trapped in the same room as a spider. I also can't understand my fear. I'm a big burly Scotsman and I'm scared of a little spider no more than a couple inches in lag span. I'm certain that it's going to be a life long fear of mine.

Website Redesign - 08/10/11

No, sadly this is not anything related to the long awaited NG redesign. It is however related to the redesign of my personal website. Some users, such as Jackho have claimed to visit my site from time to time but I never updated it much. This was mainly because it was a simple site that I coded myself from scratch and it wasn't the easiest thing to update.

I'm now using WordPress as a content management system for my site which makes things FAR easier for me and this means that I'm more likely to actually update it. Ever since I started writing news posts monthly here it means I cant really post random crap without upsetting the pattern and this is where my site comes in handy. Chances are that I'll be posting updates on it fairly regularly, so if you're even remotely interested in what I get up to or just need a method of killing a few minutes, check it out: deansplace.pcriot.com


Is that all there is for October? It's my favourite month cause it has my birthday in it. Also Iceland, but that's presumably a one-off event.

Don't you have some exciting Uni halloween plans or some such nonsense in the works?

You'll have to notify me of when your birthday is so that I can wish you a happy birthday on the day.

I don't think I've ever done much for Halloween in the past. I tend to watch the Halloween film because they're usually on TV but that's about it.

Fuck yeah redesign. I think you've ruined the feel of the site to some extent though, it doesn't feel totally retro anymore. Sure it looks sexy, but it was never about looks man. Actually, since that's all that changed, I guess it was D:
Other than that 'tis great

fuck yeah johnny cash

I know what you mean. I like the simple, retro looking sites myself but they're not easy to update. At least now I can actually be arsed to add content to it.

Johnny Cash is pretty awesome, some of the time.
