Well I'm back at work today, trying to catch up on all that didn't get done whilst I was away. I'll be busy so I'll keep this short. For those of you who knew I was applying for a postion of "Penetration Tester" in the company [it is to do with security and has no sexual content at all], well I didn't get it. They decided not to appoint at present but will keep my name (and several thers) on file in case they decide to do something later.

My feet are a lot better, down to a dull ache, so that's good. I can walk again - hurray.
