Rec Room Guidelines

In the Rec Room we share jokes, interesting stories, and speculate about trout's manties. Serve up some Spam in many different flavors and sizes, and just take some time off from study and have fun.

If you need to refresh yourself on the decorm, now would be a good time. Forum Rules: here

I'm going to make one of these "So, hi" posts whenever I drop in, I guess?

  • I'm going to make one of these "So, hi" posts whenever I drop in, I guess?

    Hello, I'm back.

    For like a few days maybe to do the migration. But, hi, anyway.

    Given that people have expressed interest in what I've been doing - here goes. I'm starting a PhD in Computer Science, particularly agent-based simulations/modelling, in September. Including a full studentship incl. fees and 14k/year to live on. Yay! I finished my first degree a few weeks back and have spent the time with my partner, gaming occasionally, and desperately tearing through research materials trying to get prepared

    Apart from that.. very little. Been reading a bit, need a new bookcase Been trying to keep up with the LoL eSports scene and failing dramatically. Plus a bit of local activismy-charity-y-things whenever I have time.

    So, how is everyone?

    I'm not doing too shabby. Still working in retail (though I'm now in the Cash Office, which means I get to do paperwork and avoid people for most of the day). Had a girlfriend for a few months, but that didn't pan out so well.

      Woo promotion! Well. Less dealing with people, it's a promotion in my book.

      on the girlfriend though. I wish you the best

        Mostly the same for me. Well, other than the fact that I have gotten to go fishing with Sparko. Oh, and a few of my friends are on steam more regularly, so we've been getting to play some. One of them has been having trouble with his internet connection. Hopefully the lag problem changes soon.

            Yeah, there are new pictures too, so I don't think you want to see them.
