Weight and Stuff Report – 24 September 2017

Weight: 228.6 pounds (16 stone 4.6 pounds, 103.7 kg)
Steps: 4,519

Well, I thought yesterday’s low weight would be one of those temporary wossnames, but apparently not, as today’s weight is even lower. So that’s another new low for the year.

I had more fun with phones today. After more conference calling, where a more technical technical person diagnosed the general nature of the problem, which was of the “this will take time, effort and cable tracing to actually track down” variety, it was agreed to stop trying that, and I’d get on with setting them up manually, which I did. This took something approaching two hours. Towards the end of the process, I found Something Odd, not to mention Deeply Wrong with a side order of What the Photon. In a meeting room, someone had taken a cable connected to the data network and plugged it into the “computer” port on the phone (this is intended to allow a computer to be plugged in to connect to the network through the phone, not to be connected to a wall port. I’ve no idea who did this, much less why, which is probably just as well[1]. Removing that cable fixed the problem that an embarrassingly large number of people had been working on for far too long. So, I undid the manual configuration and put the phones back to automatic. Which worked.

Shame I didn’t start at the other end of the office, really…

But hey, never mind, etc. Only 11 hours in the office this weekend, not to mention the 5 hours working from home on Friday evening…

On a happier note, here’s a photo of Hylton Castle’s chapel:
