i have been back at work for a week now, and it does not feel like i have been away at all!

the good thing is that i have broguth back some interesting new ideas which i have been able to use straight away and have proved quite interesting (and challenging).

as you may have seen from the cams the weather has been pretty good this week, just hope it continues over the weekend so that the bbq can come out.

one of the problems i had when learning java was thinking of "projects" with which to learn. someone at ibm has come up with robocode rumble, it looks pretty interesting and could well be a good way of honing java skills.
