wanderings and mixers

Well, it's looking like another brief era of all the family being in one country is over, as of tomorrow. Mary (my youngest sister) and Roger are jetting off to New Zealand for a bit of a look around; it's an amazing country, so I'm sure they'll love it as much as Cath and Martin did (who moved back to the UK in the later half of last year).

I think there must be wanderlust in the blood, although Beth and I are saving our travels until the children are older/have left home.

Well, another working weekend is over - it's been quite a busy one, all in, with Saturday spend wrestling with Big Brother network monitoring system, which was doing nothing I was asking it to, and today down in one of the basement studios tracing a buzzing mike fault all the way through the studio wiring to the innards of a perplexing but wizzy digital mixer (it doesn't look nearly as gorgeous as the Studer desks that are going in the bigger studios, mind). All good experience for me, though.

Tomorrow and Tuesday are days off - we're popping down to Watford in the morning, to see Cath & Luke and take a wander through town, but other than that, I don't think we've got much planned (except to see Look Around You, obviously...) I like it like that. Perhaps I might tidy the house (for a change!)

Boring webserver update - I've managed to get the sound working, and now I can broadcast any internet radio station around the house (well, to my little cordless headphones, anyway!) However, there's still loads I could do with sorting!

Links of the day

  • www.netstrider.com/.../entity_list.html : for some reason I keep needing these for my blog - they're the HTML names for all the tricky-to-type characters like é, £, € and, erm, ℑ.
  • www.banana2go.co.uk : Put an end to bruised banana misery with a purpose built holder. No, really. You can even get ones that glow-in-the-dark - not that I'd know...
