Ever eager to learn new things, I’m diving into the 2006 IBM Mainframe Contest. Run over a period of about 4 months, this contest is aimed at computer science students looking for a challenge (not to mention a bit of experiance with mainframes, which probably goes great on your CV). I’ve been taking a peek at the US contest pages to get an idea of what I’m letting myself in for. Along with myself a few other guys from UKC are diving into the challenge too, so it’ll be fun to race eachother and comapre notes afterwards.
On that note… I really should get on with my CV for my Year in Industry. Those jobs aren’t going to walk up and smack me in the face!
PS. kudos to Gentoo for having the recommended terminal emulator in portage!
