Something is different about you…

Well, some things change but other things stay the same.

After a number of years I’ve moved a number of my sites away from Lypha and am now with OVH. There’s no major reason for this save that with the work stuff we’re uploading bigger and bigger files and as the price is comparable it seemed a sensible move, especially considering that with the OVH option we’ve effectively got root access to a box so things are very much “can break / will break” as well as “are broke / can fix / no wait”.

As you can see I’ve totally changed the theme again. I much prefer this as I think that people like to read things more when they’re broken up a bit and it doesn’t hurt that the theme isn’t horrifically ugly to boot. So, much respect to the author who’s link can be found at the bottom of the site.

So what’s staying the same then? Well, everything else I suppose, the same old rubbish shall be typed, the same 3 (if that many) people shall no doubt read ignore it and I’m sure at some point some stupid script kiddie will fill the uploads directory with shit… (no shocks there).

Rubbish, rubbish, rubbish

Well, it seems that it’s the time of year for the businesses annual Quality Assurance external audit.

Past few years we’ve got through them with no problems. When it comes to this years inspection, I’m not so convinced all will be so smooth.

Think it’s something to do with things coming in 3’s, be they bad or good.

After some thinking, it’s my gut feeling that I’m due 1 more from the chain of 3 (first two being: 1] single & 2] insurance).

Something going abysmally wrong at work would pretty much do a tip top job of rounding off the trio.

Let’s hope I’m wrong!

Cold Coffee

I’m sick of having drinks go cold on me at work. Every bloody time I make myself something to drink, I then get to do something for two hours that means I don’t get to take even a sip. Upon returning to a realistic “Mug from Arm Distance” the inevitable always occurs… sip, cringe, spit.



This week I have been mostly having problems with:

  • Women (don’t ask)
  • Getting a sensible mortgage application in place (due to being “partially” self-employed-ish… it just gets complicated)
  • Starting a mobile contract with T-Mobile (which is annoying because I’ve had an orange contract since I was 18 and now I want rid of it I fucking can’t escape!)
  • The hot spell (I’m not good in hot weather, I used to drink like a fish all day long and I still can but now it makes me feel like a bloated camel)
  • Convincing people that BotF is a fucking good game! (yes Chetan, this means you!)

More than anything else though I’ve been finding it really, no actually impossibly hard to do the following:

  • Get some time to myself!

I don’t know why the last one is becoming so bloody difficult. Actually to be fair I do. I need to tell people to fuck off and leave me alone more. I think that’ll be my ‘thing’ for the week to try and tell one person (who absolutely deserves it) to fuck off.

By the way, why is it that when somebody says “Excuse me, can I get past” (no please, obviously) and you reply with something like “Just a second, i’m just picking up my bag” that they take that as a signal that its ok to barge you out of their way. I’m starting to think that with the heat, this will be the week I snap on the way to work and deck the next person who does that to me.
