Apparently, there's all this great free music on the web, available via Bittorrent. I'm having fun listening and discovering new songs, which can sometimes be good, but usually it's just average, or maybe not my type of music.

There are two options when downloading the torrent: mp3 or ogg vorbis (default), but the mp3 version has much faster seeds.

A nice extra is that most albums are licensed under Creative Commons with derivatives allowed. So you could use them in your own remixes. Or whatever.

Back to study, tomorrow is a very exciting day.

University holidays are starting soon, so I've a few plans in mind:

  1. Summer school at UCLA starts in July, ends August. Sounds pretty interesting... and expensive. Overseas studies are always tempting, as they offer once-in-a-lifetime experiences, but this one comes with a US$4500 price tag.

  2. Driving lessons. It's about time, too.
  3. Brush up on my language. Specifically, Chinese.

  4. Build a HTPC for the living room.

  5. Make a game. :)

Number 5 is a particularly sore point for me, as I've always wanted to code a game by myself, but put it off for later. Procastination could be my middle name. As a matter of fact, I should be studying for my last exam paper, which is this Monday. :)

Oh no.
