Open up

Maybe it's a mid-life crisis kind of thing. As my thirty-ninth birthday rolled around the other day — thereby taking me into my fortieth year — I decided that it was time to do something I've been vaguely thinking of for quite a while.

So I'm going to start studying with the Open University. And as a Physics graduate, and long-time programmer, obviously I'm going to study Humanities. Specifically, in February I'm going to start this course. Before that, though, in November, I think I'll probably do this short one: Start Writing Essays.

Then, in years to come, there are courses in Literature, Music, History, all kinds of stuff. Even IT, should the mood takes me; thought I suspect that OU courses may be less than cutting-edge in that area.

Which only leaves the inevitable question: since I don't have time to do all the stuff I want to now, how the hell will I find time to do this?

    I’m moving my site to a new host (a virtual private server (VPS) on Linode), so there may be strangeness. Let me know if you see anything too…
