Wednesday

I enjoyed my tutorial today. Where else can you surf websites as
tutorial exercises? Heh. It’s a first year subject I took because I’m
still eligible to take those since I took mostly 3rd year subjects in
my second and third year. :) There’s an assignment due in 2 weeks but
that’s an easy one…could probably finish it in one night. This is a 9
am class, but it’s not that bad, coz it’s held in Clayton. I live at
the halls of residence in Clayton so it’s just a couple of minutes
walk. I’m glad I took two Clayton subjects this semester. The other two
are Caulfield ones so the commute takes much longer. My faculty is
based in Caulfield though.

Well, Easter break is coming along soon and that’s a one week
holiday for us. I’ve seen a lot of chocolate Easter eggs of all shapes
and sizes, including huge ass 1 kg ones. However, I’ve never seen these
before. Cadbury’s Hot Cross Marshmallow Buns! I also picked up some
liquorish. I love that stuff, though not many people do because it’s
one of those things you either love or hate.

Anyway, I finally deleted my domain from the previous host coz it
was causing problems within the Monash network. I live at halls so that
affects me. I won’t go into the technical details but the way the DNS
server at halls assigns serial numbers makes it think my old host is
the newest entry instead of my new host. It’s been 6 days so my new
name server has probably propagated to even Afghanistan so deleting the
old one shouldn’t be a problem.

Well, migrating Movable Type to the new host was not as easy as I
thought. The database dump managed to load, but logging in gave me an
error. I tried dropping the mt_permissions table and it worked, but
then I lost my user name association with my blog. I tried running some
SQL statements, but nothing worked, so I had to import it using Movable
Type’s import system. What this means is that the pages are renumbered
so all the internal links are messed up. I’ll fix that this weekend.

Hmm…should I eat Indomie tonight or Yum Yum? I used to eat a lot of
this stuff back when I was studying in Christchurch, NZ. I only like
the duck flavored ones, it’s really good and quite spicy so if you see
it around, give it a try. I only saw this in Melbourne a couple of
weeks ago and was happy to find it. Ah…nostalgia. :)
