late finish...

Woo.. it's been a long day. You can always rely on things breaking down an hour before a shift ends - unfortunately, I'm still one of the 'experts' on some of the systems, so it was up to me and my old colleague to see what we could do to get it back up and running again. Suffice it to say, after three and a half hours of cajoling, rebooting, doing some rather heavy handed fibre-optic plug pulling (oops) and waiting for the server to display exactly the same messages as before, I thought it would probably be wise to cut my losses and go home. We're probably not going to be able to replace the bit we think is broken until Monday anyhow, and it's kind-of working at the moment.

It's been eerily quiet in London today, although still generally positive; I suppose it doesn't help that the papers are plastered with full colour photos of the devastation of yesterday (does it warrant such publicity? Is it an appropriate tribute to those who lost their lives? Discuss...) but the conversations in the office soon turned to more mundane matters, such as dance mats and buying cars off eBay.

Enough of my yabbering - to the links:

  • themightyboosh.blogspot.com : An exciting new development in the world of telly - the BBC are trying out their first broadband TV broadcast, and what better to do it with than the second series of The Mighty Boosh? See it on-line before it goes on TV ... it's the way ahead! (Or has been, ever since the days of UK Nova!)

  • www.eastanglianambulance.com : This seems like a fine piece of common sense - adding an "in case of emergency" number to my mobile phone contacts list. (thanks, Tamara!)
