After four rewrites, several false starts, and many vicious epithets hurled at the screen, I finally have a threaded proxy server that can handle 30,000 requests/hour. Of course it would be much better if I was in this position last week, but at least I can now finally finish the assignment.
Spent most of today in my normal post-Great-Time fit of depression, not particularly helped by oversleeping, having a rather bad headache all through the morning, and managing to get my shoelaces caught in my chair (and no, I have no idea how it happened, or why it took me five minutes to untangle the lace from the wheel). Embarrassingly, I almost fell asleep during the Compilers lecture as well. The chairs in that room are just too comfortable.
This week's Buffy was a continuity fan's dream. References to Angel, Xander's role in Becoming Part 2, a flashback to 'Once More With Feeling' (with a new song!), and Dark Willow? Cool.
Global Frequency #1 turned out to be something of a disappointment. Like Ellis' recent Planetary/JLA, it felt extremely rushed, and the plot seemed to be little more than a slight scaffold for Warren's latest readings from New Scientist. I still like the concept though, so I'll give it a few more issues to improve...
