Friday Five: December 2003 Archives

On a lighter note

| | Comments (2)


Went and saw Lord of the Rings - Return of the King last night. It was an epic to say the least. Definitely worth seeing on the big screen. The air conditioning got turned off sometime after midnight though, so much of the last part of the movie was watching in a boiling hot, stuffy cinema. Not pleasant at all. Made the multitude of endings that much harder to bear, and everyone was thinking "get on with it" each time a new ending scene started.

1. What was your biggest accomplishment this year?
hrm. No idea what my biggest accomplishment was. But a recent one was switching to a new faculty print server with minimal disruption and next to no calls in the following week from people not being able to print.

2. What was your biggest disappointment?
Being rejected by dingbat.

3. What do you hope the new year brings?
Getting active directory setup without any disasters. Although that's only two weeks in, haven't thought too much about the rest of the year. A promotion would be nice.

4. Will you be making any New Year's resolutions? If yes, what will they be?
I don't make new year's resolutions. I'd like to learn the piano though.

5. What are your plans for New Year's Eve?
With a bit of luck going to Luc and Cynthia's to watch the fireworks from their place in Pyrmont.
