Technology, eh?

Friday comes around so quickly. Work's been bizarre - on and off all day I've been trying to break the server that's been causing me so much trouble this week, so I can email the errors to an expert, and it's decided to start behaving itself. Typical.

I think I might try and become a Cisco Certified Network Administrator - perhaps the exam I took (and passed) a month or so back has given me a new encouragement to study? I'm not sure how I'll fit the time in, though - Beth is working on an accountancy course, and she's finding it hard going. Why? Well, I quite like doing network bits and pieces, and I carried out a test on BrainBench* today to see how much I'd learned from working (and occasionally playing)with computer networks. I didn't quite pass, but it's encouraged me a bit.

It's worth mentioning in passing that Siemens Business Services have 'won' the bid to buy BBC Technology (my previous employer). This leaves me in as much uncertainty as before, but one way or another I'll be staying with 'the Beeb'. The ideal would be for a permanent position to become available where I am now, so that I can continue doing this wonderful job. Less attractive, as propositions go, would be to move back to my job in TV, which would be under the auspices of BBC Broadcast. I'm enjoying radio while I can, in the meantime.

Well, the weekend's here, and there's not much planned. That's just the way I like it - especially now the sun's re-appeared (if only briefly... I suppose it's only July!)

Here's what I've dug up on the huge and odd internet today, then... on a musical/political theme.

Tony Blair was in a band when he was a student... Ugly Rumours
So was John Kerry... The Electras

Have a fine weekend!

*Brainbench are doing a 'special' at the moment, where all the tests are free. This is only until the 11th of July, though, and there's always the chance that they'll harvest all the addresses and cause all manner of spam.
