Mission Failed

Drat! I failed my test. Did all the hard parts fine, but two silly things let me down:

  1. A failure to indicate while doing a reverse park… Didn’t know about this but hey ho, I do now.
  2. Went through an unmarked crossroads on Mitre Road, a road I am intimately familiar with. D’oh.

My intructor reckons it was just nerves that did me for the second one, but I think that I would have done that even just in the car with him. Problem is, that I know the  4-way junction in question is always always always really quiet, and so in my mind it’s a give way coming from the side street (rather than a 4 way give way). Ah well, lesson learned. An expensive lesson right enough…

Back to Ubuntu

So I’m suppose to be revising for the Big Testâ„¢ that I’ve got tomorrow, but instead I decided to reboot in Ubuntu. And by gosh, I’d forgotten how nice it looks. And this is still the 7.04 version! Sounds are nice too – it’s probably just subjective perception, but playing music sounds nicer too, although I’d still like to get my hands on an equaliser and turn the bass down a bit. Yes, I could see myself using this for a while, especially as there aren’t as many game distractions on here…

Why did I ever leave?
