Good, good, down a bit today. But that might be a thingy.
The day didn’t start too well: I was just heading for the shower when the phone rang: power failure at work, all servers down. My colleague Aaron was on the way to make a start at sorting things out, and another colleague in Leeds got in by remote control to assist, so by the time I arrived, most things were behaving, apart from one server which was having a bit of a sulk until I rebooted it. Everything was restored to working order in good time, so that wasn’t too bad. Well, we could have done without it…
What with all those fun and games, I didn’t have a chance to go far at lunchtime, which accounts for the low step count. And the weight may be related to me missing breakfast, mutter, mutter.
Anyway, today’s photo is a nice bit of architectural detail from Corbridge:
I had a day off today – partly because I had a couple of appointments in the morning, and partly because a break after the long weekend seemed like a good idea. I didn’t do all that much – did some food shopping, went into Newcastle then the MetroCentre, where I bought some more supplies.
Today’s photo is the other side of that sign in Corbridge. Lots more history, and a lot easier to photograph with the light behind me…
And here I am, finally back from Manchester after a long and largely successful moving operation. Today’s weight is up quite a bit from last week, which may be related to eating out and having hotel breakfasts…
This is a sign at the edge of the marketplace in Corbridge. Lots of history there…
And that’s the Manchester move pretty much done and dusted. All the toys are working, and people will be able to work tomorrow.
My colleagues Aaron and Neil are on their way to their homes, and I’m here in Manchester for one more night. This wasn’t the original plan, but due to this and that, I decided it would be better for me to remain to deal with any issues in the morning.
What with changing my plans, I’ve run out of previously prepared photos, so here’s a link to a silly video. Warning: may include Les. Enjoy it before the ad campaign expires:
No comment on the weight, as the scales couldn’t be bothered with following me to Manchester. Today’s work involved moving servers from one place to another place, connecting things together, and uttering the traditional curse on all beings involved with telecom companies.
This evening involved a free drink in the hotel bar and an excellent meal at the Sawadesh Indian restaurant next door to the Novotel.
Today’s photo shows just part of the Corbridge Roman site:
