Week 368

Things eased off a little this week, sandwiched between a way-too-hectic week and what is, currently, a long summer free of any commitments.

I spent one day at Somethin’ Else wrapping up the final few wrap-uppable issues with the front end development. That’s all, at last, over, and a shiny new site should be coming to a browser near you very soon.

The rest of the week has been filled with catching up on overdue bits and pieces, approaching a wonderful feeling that I understand is called “being on top of things”. Crossing off tasks that have been nagging me for way too long is very good indeed.

  • 09:06am: @dorianmoore But when (if) the code finally works, all is good. Phew.
  • 09:25am: We've got the washing up situation sorted, but someone MIS-SHELVED A BOOK! Chaos, anarchy and revolution rule in #BRIG.
  • 01:33pm: Breakfast, Pepys, new office fans, Chart Hits 83, bloggage, ticking things off. Time for the weekend.
  • 02:53pm: Replaced one old, still wrapped Yellow Pages with a newer, smaller, wrapped Yellow Pages. They are simply memories of how we used to live.
  • 04:13pm: @synx508 Awww, but it's quite sweet to get a chunk of 20th century delivered every year.
  • 07:26pm: Talking people on the train are even more distracting and annoying when you realise they're almost exactly the same as you.
