The current state of play -- meh and urgh.

So ... what's going on?

Slouch yesterday was good. alexmc, aeglefinus and Sarah, hddod and nerosmaster joined me in wandering around Southend. There were supposed to be fireworks at 8pm, but with the rain and the general tiredness most of us abandoned ship and set off home before they started.

Slept on the train.

Got home, and there was no Internet. All the little lamps on the cable modem were fine, the firewall got an IP address from the ISP, but I couldn't get any traffic out at all. No clues on the NTL recorded message either. Swapped network cards in the firewall to no effect. Swapped them back. Still nothing. So that was all a bit urgh. Traffic on the Lan was fine. I missed scarlatti's phone calls because I was in the server room with all those fans going, so that was urgh too.

Internet came back sometime this morning.

I slept far too long. Missed Church. I wonder if I'm still on US time? So that was urgh as well.

Shoulders urgh. Head urgh. Throat urgh. Left knee double-urgh.

Not being with scarlatti is very urgh indeed.

Back to work tomorrow, and the fridge needs defrosting too. Meh.

Lasagna and Chat now. Life improving, but too slowly to be useful.
