Midterm madness

Got a 90% on my Japanese midterm, with an overall score for the first term of 92%.

A little good news, a little bad news

I woke up this morning and dragged myself through the cold and snow to reach school, only to find that my first class (Japanese) has been canceled. I could be laying in bed nice and warm right now, but nooooo. So, now I get to waste an hour sitting around waiting for my other class to start. Zzzzz.

On the bright side, I got my marks back from Kinesiology, and I scored myself an A. Go me! Almost a quarter of the class (19/81) got an F, and I must say that's pretty sad.

The bloody aftermath

So, I moved my server this evening. Finally got all the essential services off the homebox and out into the cloud. Mad props to Linode for not sucking!

Only thing that isn't working quite right is my Jabber server, but I'm hoping that it'll sort itself out once the DNS refresh percolates out through the tubes. I may have to poke at it a bit tomorrow, but it's not a big deal. There will probably be a few glitches with delayed emails until then too, but that's just part of the game.

It took a bit longer than I expected to do the switchover as I waited until now to copy over the spamassassin databases without realizing they're about 100-120MB each. Takes a few minutes to squeeze that through a 512kbit uplink.

It's good that I check these things

First day of class is the 5th, not the 6th.

Unfortunately, the U doesn't open until the 4th too, which means I couldn't go in and sell a textbook I want to get rid of and buy a bus pass while I was out today. At least I figured this out beforehand rather than wasting a trip going out there.

Sadly there wasn't the option of postponing my shopping until tomorrow, as I was fresh out of milk after breakfast this morning.
