Worst Day of the Year?

Apparently today is officially the "Worst Day of the Year". A combination of Christmas credit card bills, lousy weather and failed New Resolutions conspire to make today the worst day ever.

But not for me.

I've just found out that Hull University has got four teams into next round of the UK Microsoft Imagine Cup Software Development competition. Congratulations to Stuart, Kamilla, Callum, Ashley, David, Kenny, Sam, Nicholas, Anthony, Jon and Jonathan who make up the successful teams. Well done everyone! What is especially impressive is that at least two of the teams are made up of first year students who only joined the department in September last year.

The next stage for each team is a trip to Manchester to further develop their competition entries and perfect their pitching skills, leading to a Dragon's Den style final in London later this year.

I can't wait.
