Leeds

  • Steps: even more endless.
  • City: also pretty big.
  • University: full of leaflets.

Not too much notable stuff happened last week. Cleverly hurt my foot jumping down some stairs at school on Friday, and hurt my eyes looking at the sun in a café on Saturday, but both were worth it. Tomorrow is result time for the January exams, and I'm feeling reasonably optimistic. Big things.

Went to Leeds Uni today. Pretty impressive, though all the steps didn't really help my foot. Interview was fun, had some mini-conversations about ChatZilla, parametric equations, and the Semantic Web. Got to draw a cube with my eyes shut, and play 3D tetris (though I'm sure you all know I prefer a different number of dimensions). Found that they teach Python in the first year, haven't decided whether that's a good thing or not.

On nerdiness: Just about the whole room raised a hand when "who's used Linux?" was asked. I'm sure I wasn't the only one amused when the Director Of Learning & Teaching referred to the helpers as "redshirts". I heavily considered asking how the "long room" got its name, but thought better of it.

No ducks to report.
