Hi! My name's Alister. This is my website. It started off as an experiment in 1996, and never really stopped.
A Year Later
The site has been lost in the ether for several months. But it is now back, courtesy of 5quidhost!

Since the last piece of news, I have completed my final year at university. I am now a Master of Engineering with honours in Electronics and Software Engineering.

The main page now has a new feature: Wikipedia Article of the Day. Because sometimes I come across articles on Wikipedia that I really need to share.
The car broke down, and we had to come home. Read all the gory details of the last month or so here.
Today I went to get my ticket to Luxembourg. My New Year's Resolution was not to fly for the entire year, so I have to go by bus. It turns out that to get from Edinburgh to Luxembourg by bus, you need to spend two days in transit.

Of course, being unable to fly is a perfect excuse for going on a mighty road trip in July!

So, here is my travel itinerary for the next two months:

13/6: Edinburgh to London
14/6: London to Luxembourg
29/6: Luxembourg to Amsterdam
1/7: Amsterdam to Paris
4/7: Paris to Dijon
7/7: Dijon to Cologny in the Republic and Canton of Geneva
9/7: Cologny in the Republic and Canton of Geneva to Turin
11/7: Turin to Rome
15/7: Rome to Milan
16/7: Milan to Innsbruck
18/7: Innsbruck to Stuttgart
20/7: Stuttgart to Cologne
23/7: Cologne to Amsterdam
26/7: Amsterdam to Brussels
28/7: Brussels to Edinburgh

This means I will be going to Amsterdam twice in the space of a month. I'm pretty sure you can get arrested for that.
Red Nose Day
For Red Nose Day, I spent 12 hours (midnight to noon) under a floor. I raised £76.01, and matched the highest donation to give a grand total of £82.44 to Comic Relief. Huge thanks to everybody who gave money! The photographic evidence can be found here.

Today is the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome. So, yay for that as well.
There's a new version of OpenJazz, with some minor improvements.

Winter hates me and made me ill, but now I'm better and ready to focus on getting things done. This mainly means uni work, but hopefully there'll be some more improvements to OpenJazz as time goes by.
