Yes, I am here [Aug. 13th, 2003|10:23 am]

Hi there, not been posting much recently :(

I was working in London for two days and didn't have access to the internet for most of the time. Yesterday (Tuesday) I spent most of the day working in a server room - so cool. The disadvantage comes when I have to go out ... leaving the server room it was a wall of heat going into the office environment ... and then yet another wall of heat when I walked out of the building. Not pleasant weather to travel on packed underground trains :( Sharing sweat with strangers is not my idea of a fun occupation, even if some of them are good looking and not wearing much!!

I ended up working 'till 8 pm trying to get a problem fixed ... just don't talk to me about multi-tape backup units *grrrrrrrrr* It isn't fixed, but at least it is running batch jobs automatically ... well I'll see later if they've run.

Right, back to "real" work. Peace and coolness to you all

Unicorn Banner
You're a unicorn. You're very pure and innocent.
Almost everyone loves you and you love almost
everyone. You may be naive to the point of
gullibility. You're pretty much incapable of
violence, the exception being when someone you
love is threatened. While your intentions are
nothing but good, some might call you a
"straight-edger." Your alignment is
EXTREMELY *good*.


What mythical beast are you?
