Driving – an update

I haven’t posted anything about my driving lessons have I?
Well, here goes…

The first lesson I did 1 lap of circular road on the downs
The two hours passed really quickly, I got into 2nd gear and was going at about 20mph at one point
No. of times stalled: 0

The second lesson, this time Wednesday morning I did three laps of the downs (Circular road, Ladies mile, Stoke road, and then Rockleaze/Downleaze) anti-clockwise, and two laps clockwise.
I got into 3rd gear and was doing 30mph
No. of times stalled: about 8 (i lost count!)

The third lesson, today (Monday) I was driving around Southmead practicing junctions (we went past auntie Sue’s place 3 times!)
This time I was mainly in 2nd at about 20mph (there was lots of junctions, all close together)
No. of times stalled: 2 (both towards the end)

Driving again next week
I’m getting better
More updates coming!

First Driving Lesson!

Hooray! I booked my first driving lesson! (even though you probably guessed that from the title!)

I booked it with Drivercraft. It will cost me £8.50 an hour, and it is a two hour lesson.
The lesson is booked for Thursday at 2pm (GMT). Thats tomorrow!

I have mixed emotions about it.
I am happy that I have finally booked a lesson, its been 3years and 8months since I turned 17.
I am also nervous and scared at the same time, but I think that is only natural.

Watch out other road users!
Here I come!
Now I go,

RSSread released!

My latest pet project, RSSread, has been released, though it is still being worked on.

RSSread has been incorporated into my homepage.
So this post and any new ones will also be shown on my homepage.

All of this has been done by reading the XML file which is produced by my blog, this means that any RSS feeds can be read by my script, as long as they are XML files.
The script can be configured in a number of different ways which can be found on the example page
It is actually only the example page which is still being worked on, but because this file is being included in the zip file, I have not yet properly released RSSread.

I will post more details in a few days time when I have finished the example page
