New Term


Term started today at Essex University, and I spent two hours in a windowless room trying to teach half of the programming language Lua to 14 final-year students (they get the other half next week). The lecture was from 1pm until 3pm, which would be a good time for a lecture (the students are often awake by then) except that there was nowhere to park when I arrived.

20 minutes of driving around later, I saw where someone had left a place on the grass so took that. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to reverse out, because it was tipping down with rain, and indeed I couldn't reverse out: fortunately, I found I could go forward and drive over the grass until I found an exit, thereby adding to the churning of the turf.

I have a lab tomorrow from noon until 2pm. I think perhaps I'll go in a bit earlier...
