Exhausting week at work - severely under strength and very busy. Hayfever also hovering on the horizon. Got another assignment back - 70, really not bad in the circumstances. Holland v. Italy penalties was my most exciting Euro 2000 moment so far. Bit depressing really!

Still not getting these libraries installed. Looks like work will be a long hard slog for the next couple of weeks. Still, the day screams by...Mid-morning call from a representative of Vulcan (a Microsoft-owned VC outfit) requesting my CV. A wind up? Possibly - with my disparaging of Redmond so oft stated. Anyway, one look at my pitiful CV will be enough to send anyone running in the opposite direction, clutching their vast salary to their chest!

Back from an overnight in Southampton to meet American friends who are moving to the UK. All goes well, but the distance between B&B -> town -> docks is much greater than anticipated. I would strongly advise anyone against staying at the Winston Hotel - they really mean it about the karaoke! Further unsuccessful attempts to get the necessary libraries for Evolution up and running.

I think things are pretty stable now...finally got my mouse wheel working again, which is a good sign. Otherwise, things are quiet. Time to reinstall Nethack.



I've had a home on the web for more years than I care to remember, and a few kind souls persuade me it's worth persisting with keeping it updated. This current incarnation of the site is centred around the blog posts which began back in 1999 as 'the daylog' and continued through my travels and tribulations during the following years.

I don't get out and about nearly as much these days, but I do try to record significant events and trips for posterity. You may also have arrived here by following the trail to my former music blog Songs Heard On Fast Trains. That content is preserved here too.
