office warmth

Another sunny day in Central London - the weather people predicted showers, but I saw none. It's actually perfect out at the moment, with a cool breeze, some wonderfully fluffy clouds and enough shade to avoid sustained sunlight. If there is a downside (and we Englishmen are experts at finding something to complain about!) it would be that the hermetically sealed office in which I work seemed to have had air-conditioning failure, so the fans were blowing warm are about, and everything ended up a bit muggy.

My boss and my opposite number are both on holiday this week, so I've got my fingers crossed that no major crises arise... I have my spares at hand in case of emergency, and a couple of keen colleagues who I'm sure would bail me out of trouble if everything went horribly wrong.

It's been an uneventful day so far, though, with a few things needing to be organised and some broken bits to be tested, packed up and sent back to Germany.

Annoyingly (although probably not unfortunate in terms of my productivity, given my irresponsibility!) MSN Messenger hasn't been working all day, so my usual brief recreational conversations with Beth and various other on-line friends haven't distracted me from the task at hand. I daresay I'll get home and it'll work perfectly.

Quick links for today: ChangeDetection might come in handy - it checks to see if a web page (like this one) has been updated, and will send an email to whoever subscribes to the service. It's free, too, although - as usual - I wonder how they are sustained. I found it at the Half Man Half Biscuit website, a band who've been around for decades making unusual yet amusing music (John Peel has often featured them on his show).

I played this game for a bit, too... fun, certainly for a while. I'm terrible when it comes to computer games - I try to avoid playing them if I possibly can, especially if they're long and involved, because I can neglect everything to get to the end!

Nearly home, now; Tuesday tomorrow. I could never get the hang of Tuesdays.
