Well here goes nothing, at least it's nearly the weekend I might attempt some sort of arduino hackery if I get time. Maybe some sort of midi device...

So yeah, I am posting via Elinks on my home webserver via ssh from the terminal on my Mac at work, "but why?" I hear you cry, "what could be the cause of this pointless geekery?" a thousand tiny voices in the back of the room scream. My answer, boredom. The whole point of my job, it would seem is to fix crappy code written by others who, it would seem, have no idea of how to write decent markup. Which isn't condusive to me actually wanting to do my job, I was promised projects and all I have been given for the last 2 months is scrutwork and text amends. So here I am, building my portfolio, putting together server side bits and bobs, all to escape the crushing tedium that is my latest job.

well I'm one month in to my six month contract at Holiday Extras and I've just been handed a training schedule for our internal systems that lasts for the next seven months. Awesome. I think...

blimey that was a thoroughly exhausting weekend, Kelly and I with the aid of various of my friends and her family moved us into our new flat in one day. That's all my crap from my storage unit, everything from my mums (mostly), all the musical bits from my brothers and all of Kelly's bits from her old place. All up six flights of stairs, highlights included my electric organ and incubator stand, the sofa, the washing machine. and the washing machine box full of books. My arms and legs are still trying to divorce me, and I still have to sort through the boxes of stuff so we can get a good deal of it recycled/charity shopped.
Still mustn't grumble, we are in and so is all my stuff, my stereo is wired up for the first time in two years and I finally have a home, rather than just a place that I live. Plus my G/F, Kelly has been brilliant, she has worked so hard to make this move happen and I'm so happy that we're finally in together, at last.

Now we need to get the web set up and running, the network sorted, my music gear set up, a love film account up and running...

Soo tired,

Didn't sleep last night, just laid in bed unable to shut my brain off. Today I am parked in front of my screen trying to work out what is going wrong with the booking process for a major theme park's website and I just can't seem to claw my way into The Zone. Bahhh.

More than mildly frustrating really

How sad...

Terry Pratchett released a press release saying he has been diagnosed with the early stages of Alzhiemers disease.
