Seriously. It's a hard life

After a couple of nights in shithole hotels I managed to get a cheap
rate in malmaison. Pity I will only be sleeping here for 4 hours.
Bummer.

Cake

Some lucky kid is going to get this wicked cake for his birthday.

Mmm. Supper time

Shitty week at work. Followed by beer, jazz and a kebab. Hope to get
some sleep this weekend.

Son Foguero

A little walkthrough of the place we stayed last week. Really difficult to describe just how cool it was. Hopefully the video does just that.

Welcome Home


So this is how it feels, originally uploaded by RickHawkins.

After a week in the 30 degree warmth of the Med arriving in the UK was almost stereotypical. It took 1 hour 20 to complete the second leg of the flight from Düsseldorf, and then 1 hour sitting on the tarmac because rain had delayed everything from leaving so there was no room at the inn.

Then it took 45 minutes to get luggage, the bus delayed by 30 minutes and then a further 2 hours of crawling along the motorway in the pouring rain.

Marvellous.

Iliad eBook Reader

I finally got my Iliad a couple of days before going on holiday.
Seeing as I suggested them in the first place and Gunveer and Alex
have been using theirs for a month or more now I was a little late to
the party.

Holiday reading was a good test run out for it. The screen is a joy to
read from and the weight and size is perfect. It's a pity that all the
companion software so far is windows only but I will be gaining shell
access soon and start hacking. This week will be the first real test
of it as a note taking device for me. The other team members use it
for this but I am sure that I can tweak out a bit more functionality
than they are getting.
