Unfortunately, I had my computer stolen, along with the Zip cartidges with
my backups (for hard drive failure, not theft - they were sitting next to
the computer) the following year (I got full-time employment halfway through
my final year, and took an additional 4 years to complete my degree ;). I
had to pull out of a course since it got stolen week 12 of 14 in the
semester, with a project on it that was worth 40% ... I just told my
professor I wasn't going to bother sitting the exam, but would get an extra
couple of days pay ...

I think I've still got all the specs and everything for the machine, so some
day I may re-write it (in Python ;) It needed a rewrite anyway ... as I
said, a *group* final-year project ... they wouldn't let me do it on my own.
It would have taken so much less time if they had ... (back in the days
before I knew what software design really was ;)
