Today was the last day, last exam, last drinks.

Alchemea: finished!
Will be leaving a nice institute and some lovely people. Not before tomorrow though, when we go for some fish n chips.
Many thanks to Darryn who puts unbelievable ammounts of effort into the course, it wouldn't have been the same without her!

All excuses are valid to post a Queen video.

Last few weeks we went on some fieldtrips.

To SSE Audio. Very nice company, does the big gigs as well. Have to say I was more impressed by the AED rent audio warehouse some years ago. Some nice insights on the way they go about their business though.

(some of their outboard gear in storage)

Also visited a lighting company (name escapes me) and Funktion One audio where we had a very nice afternoon chat with the two owners. Insightfull. These Funktion One guys have a whole different approach on building speakers.

All this tripping to cold warehouses resulted in flu-ish symptoms for 3 days, staying in bed whenever possible, bah. From today on things seem to be improving.

A couple of tests still coming up, a couple already taken care of. No problems there.
Had a last session on the Avid Venue. Typical Dodgydesign desk, very popular because of interfacing with pro tools though.

4.5 more days to go in London.. Tuesday a new story begins.
