Well good start to the day, last night I introduced a plot twist
that I'm involved in and it seems to have stimulated
and there are lots of posts waiting for me to
Unfortunately none of the characters
would have noticed anything amis
yet so the first email I read was a general ratty complaint
to most of the group.
Oh well, off to read through the rest of the messages.
M (one of the many people
who attended the "Internet
for Complete Idiots
" courses that BluePrintVert
and I ran) called up today. He has just been given Internet Access
and needed another lesson
on how to use it. Vert answered the 'phone
(thankfully because if it had been me I would have screamed
) and walked him through the basics (again). Notable quote "So is this a website? What does it do?
" about www.bbc
After the call we came to the conclusion that he slept through our very interesting presentations
We now have a bet
on whether he will be able to cope with the concept of a firewall password
Andy is 29 today
so in the tradition of this company he provided lots of cake
. Helping myself to a donut
I returned to my office
, one bite revealed it to me a toffee
donut - not jam
! As I can not stand toffee donut
s from Tesco
I was forced to discard
it where nobody could see
People in the office are beginning to find out about this diary, this is not a good thing and I am beginning to regret announcing K?s involvement in Flame FM at the departmental meeting
, he has no sympathy
Getting to grips with PHP
for the database
, today I managed to implement some code
to authenticate users
. Of course when I get home I have to carry on with Perl
, I really need to get to grips with it create some sort of indexing for my UFED Logs site.
I love insurance
, it isn't going to cost me a penny
to get my cell phone repair
ed (the flip down bit looks like it will break off sometime this week). I just have to wait until the Pocket Phone Shop
has a spare phone
to lend me while mine gets sent off.
Well, it looks like I am off to Birmingham
tomorrow. One of the servers
that I built is becoming unreliable and needs fixing (it had to be the PDC
didn't it?). While the job is dull as dishwater, it does mean I get to work nearly an hour of overtime
as I have to leave so early, and I get paid for spending four hours sitting in a car
reading and listening to CD
Well one of our remote servers
has stopped responding
, it refuses to even accept a ping
. Our current best guess is that becuase E started the backup
in the middle of the day, it is just too busy
to recieve any other network traffic
. We'll find out for sure when the backup is finished.
I got home a little late
r then usual as the bus driver
took a wrong turn and we went about half a mile out of our way. He didn't charge us extra
was easy to fix
, just a matter of plugging the network cable back in, E had kicked it out by accident.
Dad seems to have lost
some very important paperwork that I need last week, I hope I can make do without it.
