Seemingly it’s International TV Turnoff Week, National Depression Week, National Stop Snoring Week, and World Lab Animal Week. So switch off the television set, cheer up, lie on your front, and only use that smelly stuff you got at Xmas from the Body Shop.
As I mentioned it will be a quiet (ish) week here at Snowgoon Towers. It’s the ‘last week’ of the project, and the usual chaos is descending! Need to be on-the-ball, pushing the envelope… yadda yadda yadda. I even went to bed early last night to make sure I was properly refreshed. Of course I…Continue reading Monday morning
Only problem with working over the weekend, well ONE of the problems with working over the weekend, is just how tired it makes you. No respite at all. Of course I’ve got a bloody cheek to say I’m knackered, it’s not like I’ve run 26 miles 385 yards* today (I’ve barely walked further than to…Continue reading Knackered
Not yet got around to doing that book meme that is going round – been avoiding it all week until I’ve got something better than UML diagrams, or Security Model architectures as the nearest book. I will mention a gem spotted in one of the papers today – it was an article about a hotel…Continue reading For those with a black and white TV…

I don’t pay much attention to Spam, if they make it to my mailbox (which they do at work as they won’t let me use MailWasher.. pah!) I usually just Shift+Delete the buggers. But then I installed Office 2003, and Outlook has a new message notification thingy – it’s quite smart actually – which pops…Continue reading Spam
Five of us in the office, and I’ve only a couple of hours to go as I need to get home by 4pm (ish). We are off out tonight for dinner with Louise’s Granda. It’s a family thing and I’m not sure how it will be, but hey, it’s a free meal! Unfortunately the sun…Continue reading Lunch break
I like the office at the weekend. In a way. It’s so quiet, I’m the only one here. S’pos I’d better do some work.
So you wanna see my desktop then? If you can make it out on this resized screenshot – you’ll spot that I’ve got a different XP Style running. Rob mentioned StyleXP in a comment, which will let you do this and a lot more, but I didn’t like the 2MB (!!) overhead, and found a…Continue reading Customisation: Take 2
