Meh. Another frustrating day...

Anyway, I got home in time to watch "Charmed" on Sky, so that cheered me up. Then watched "Scooby Doo" - fun film. Interestingly, there was a clue to the villain's identity in the middle. Collapse ) I didn't spot it first time round, but I recognised the significance of it once I knew the ending.

Had an email back from Vladimir this morning (see last night's entry) - he said "Your remarks are right [...] Thanks for all the remarks an for beeing attentive." So, he's now sent out an updated email to everyone on the course. Now that's settled, I can actually start the coursework :) Mind you, some people were complaining yesterday, saying that they wanted a week's extension, since it was given to us a week late (which we have now got). Looking it this thing, I'd be surprised if I don't have it finished by tonight. Anyway, this time I'm going to make sure that I hand it in way in advance, to avoid any last minute stapler problems etc.

Ah well, today has gone pretty well.

Had a research seminar this afternoon - today's was about computer forensics. Unlike my recent lectures, the guy teaching it actually knew more than I did about the subject, which was a nice change :) In fact, the Wednesday seminars are always good for that - the problem tends to be when they're pitched at people with 5 years research experience in the area, and go over my head... Anyway, I followed today's without any problem, and it was quite interesting. As I've mentioned before, I originally wanted to be a lawyer, so it's nice when I see areas where law/IT overlap. There was a bit of technical stuff, but it was mainly legal stuff, e.g. the issues of being an expert witness in a trial.

After that, I went off to see "Die Another Day" at the local cinema (Warner in Fulham). Unlike last night, there were plenty of seats available - I think there were only 20-30 people in the whole audience. Of course, this was the 16:15 showing, so lots of people would still have been at work. Anyway, I enjoyed it. It was pretty much what I expected from a Bond film - stupid, but entertaining. And very loud! Mind you, I didn't think much of Madonna's theme tune - it's the first time I've seen a Bond film and thought "hurry up and finish the credits so we can get on with the main film".
