Well Friday was a good day. I actually managed to get the release of a new version of a system sorted and onto the user site. This has been dragging on for ages and today was the last day that the guy who had supported it could help me. He is being made redundant so will not be able to help me in future :( The system is "interesting" in that it runs in an environment where it is not easy to reach for day-to-day adjustments. I think if I had to go out to the operational system I'd have to pass training on how to escape from a helecopter underwater - not something that's top of my "things to do" list. Fortunately I can do everything I need to do remotely ... well it looks that way so far.|
I was also managing another problem on another user system - this one in London. I think it is in an OK state for what needs to happen at the start of the week and I can do more fixing later in the week once the client has done their payment run.
Now I just have one other client in London with a random "my computer won't let me logon" problem to sort out some time and life will be perfect :) This problem is just getting escalated up the management levels so we have to develop a plan for how we are going to tackle it and spend half our time writing reports about what we are doing ... and why.

My eyes are telling me to stop peering at this screen :) so I'd better stop and go to bed.
All the very best to everyone, peace
