Weekend Lectures

6 December 2006

This year, the Computer Science department at Swansea developed and organised a special module for a small selection of third years.  This special module – “Advanced Topics in Computer Science: Testing” – is a complete break away from traditional Computer Science style courses.  Unlike every other module I have taken over the past two and […]

Gregynog 2006

30 November 2006

As you may have noticed, my blog has been rather neglected recently. This is because I’ve been completely snowed under with work including several pieces of coursework, weekend lectures and the 24th Annual Computer Science Colloquium in Gregynog. For those that don’t know, the Comp Sci department at Swansea organise a trip to Gregynog in […]

Dissertation

15 October 2006

I’ve been having a lot of fun this weekend.  I’ve had a 20 page initial document for my dissertation on Web Services to write.  I’m still not there, but I’m getting close.  It is actually a quite nice topic to research (especially since it directly relates to my job and what I want to do […]

Well yesterday evening had to have been the worse experience of customer service from Arriva Trains Wales I have ever seen – it almost beats the fun I had with Orange last year when getting my contract renewed. The evening started off very well with a meal and few drinks with the guys from work. […]

The Press and Anonymity

6 August 2006

I don’t normally comment on stuff like this, but in this case I am going to make an exception.  The question I have been contemplating is when does the press loose the right to research a person’s identity? This weekend I have been made aware that a national newspaper “the Sunday Times” has potentially destroyed […]
