    There's no real requirement for size (at least at my school)- most are around a hundred pages or so. Mine'll probably be a little shorter. I know minesweeper just finished his at a UK university - sounded pretty long.

    ONE HUNDRED PAGES?!!

    I have trouble READING 100 pages, let alone writing them! What sort of things would you write about? Is it like an essay or just an opinion, can it be about something thats already happened (like the history of the intenet for example) or something you invent (like how your new file system you plan to make will work)?

    I'm helping port a bunch of code to a new platform. I've already ported the OS, and I'm currently porting a communication protocol.

    Sweden hasn't faught a war for about 200 years (Although this doesn't mean we havn't been a great fighting nation if you're intrested you could read some books about the 30 years war and a bit forward in time.). And we are one of the few countrys still having forced army (meaning everyone has to be in it for some time although we don't got enuf money to fund all of our military so alot of people don't have to (couldn't find the english word for it))

    They say that if you play a Windows Install CD backwords, you hear satanic messages. That's nothing; play it forward and it installs Windows.

    > Just sit on my a$$ all day...what about you?

    Travelling with car and tent through Sweden for a couple of weeks. From Malmö via the western part of the country to Arvidsjaur in Lappland and then via the east-coast back to the south and then back home.
