Still Here

Hi all,

I thought I should just let you all know that I'm still alive and capable of typing.
I hope you all had a good Christmas and I wish you all the best for the new year.

As you may be able to tell from my lack of posts, uni is quite a lot of work and my spare time is generally spent sleeping rather than doing some more typing. If you want to know anything about uni then please feel free to comment and I will try to reply as soon as I can. 

As for the last week (this week) I have learnt how to use CAD (Computer Aided Design) Software, and also make engineering drawings which, although slightly tedious, definately gives a sense of achievement. Two of the engineering drawings can be seen below and I shall try to post the third along with my 3D CAD wing and engine soon.

My first engineering drawing: A landing gear strut
And the second: an assembly diagram of a machine casting supporting a fulcrum pin
Next week is rather busy with Global Engineering Challenge week. I will be working with a variety of other first year engineers in order to design an affordable, off-grid computer centre. I shall try and tell you a little more as well as how it goes towards the end of next week, though it may be slightly delayed with exams the week after, then again that should give me plenty of time to do some writing.

Anyway, hopefully I needn't to say more as I should be posting again soon. Just so you know what to expect alongside the above I also intend to tell you about a couple of little projects I'm working on, as well as some reviews of flight sim add-ons (not much hardware as I never received it).
