All change

This is going to be difficult. First, allow me to set the mood with some suitable (but extremely stereotypical) background music. With some very mixed emotions, I have made the tough decision to leave the Operations team at DataSift in the middle of September. I started working here in January of this year, and I […]

Hearing aid direct audio input

Many hearing aids can handle direct audio input (DAI), often via a “shoe” that attaches to contacts on the aid itself. This shoe then provides a DAI jack (sometimes called a europlug or eurojack) that cables can be plugged into. There seems to be a complete lack of cables designed for people with a single […]

No more exams!

So my exams have finally finished… it’s a very surreal feeling. Still got the project to go, but my time at university is even closer to being over. I don’t think it’s really sunk in yet. Once the exam was over, a group of us headed to get some drinks, and came away with four […]

Life moves on

Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve updated anything here. Insight is moving along, but has currently stalled while I’m in exam mode. I’m not going to talk about that though this is a rare personal post.

The End Is Nigh

… and that’s it. No more lectures. Ever. Apart from revision lectures, but they don’t count in the same way. This feels like a bit of an anti-climax. It’s hard to believe that four years at university are almost over! It’s going to take some getting used to. Of course, it’s not all over just […]

Insight: First report done!

Well, after much hard work, criticism, and more: the first report is in! I’m actually only writing this post two weeks later because once it was done, I just had to take some time to catch up on everything else I’ve been letting slide while working almost non-stop on this report. This report has outlined […]

Back at Uni

So, I’m now back at University – it feels good to be back! I’ve moved back into the same house as last year, with the same guys as before, which is great. They’re a wonderful bunch, and we live more like a family than a collection of students. Today was the Freshers Fair, and it […]

My Life: The Musical

OK, another personal post: my girlfriend told me to do this! Basically, you have to put your music player on random, with your entire collection, and (being honest), choose each random track as it comes and put them next to these headings in order: Opening Credits: I Just Can’t Wait To Be King (The Lion […]

First day of work!

Well today was my first day at my 6-month work placement. I was pleasantly surprised by how quick the admin stuff was to sort out. I got all my passwords and usernames and everything (aside from a few hiccups). I’d even been receiving email since February, which I thought was quite impressive. Add to this […]

Exams are over

Well that’s it: exams are over. For better or for worse. Now off to do some drinking, I think…
