1. Gave a talk at Toronto Interacts: 22:52

I was part of a panel on transitioning to AJAX (Asynchronous Javascript and XML) hosted by the Toronto Interacts society for usability professionals. I had to modify a lot of my talk on the fly, as most of the audience had heard about the basics and weren't really interested in code. I spent more time talking about the usability challenges and opportunities of something as small as autocompletion, which was probably a good decision.

I forgot the recorder, though. Waah.

One of the attendees invited me to a nearby gathering of game developers. I was surprised to find that it was a social event hosted by the International Game Developers Association. I know about IGDA because Ranulf's the chair of the Manila chapter. It was a lively

Downside, though: I fell down the stairs while leaving the restaurant... Nothing broken, but I can feel the bruises forming. Worse: I broke the camera! Waaaah!

I feel terrible about that. In fact, the whole day's been kinda iffy. I really hate waking up to overcast skies and grey concrete walls...

Well, at least that speech is finished. It was nice meeting people, though.

2. MIE1407F results: 22:59

85%. Waaah.

By some weird calculation, though, 85% ends up as an A.
