Software-d. Again

Software and computers. Can’t live with them, can’t live without them. Sigh. This almost didn’t get written this week (and? I hear you cry. Might even have been a positive!). Earlier in the week I had a major “issue” with my antivirus product. Soon after a Webex-style interaction with my main accounting system software support…

Man flu again

Man flu. Can you even call it that when the wife goes down with it first? Firstly apologies for nothing last week – (i) we were away and (ii) man flu… Lorraine took time off work last week. On its own not an earth shattering statement but that woman just doesn’t take a sickie. Previous…

A doing week

This week has, in the main, been a doing week. After a couple of weeks with wall to wall appointments it’s been a novel experience. I have of course been softwared a number of times… I’m sure you know what I mean. Depending on when one week starts and finishes we were expecting to collect…

Are your team gruntled?

It’s a question worth asking. It – originally – came about because of a news item earlier in the week saying that a significant data breech was caused by a disgruntled employee.

If you’re expecting a travelogue…

Procrastination revisited

Inside my head is a big Domesday clock, ticking down to our holidays in a little over seven working days time and on a small piece of paper is my to do list. And I am doing my utmost to not do any of the urgent stuff – procrastination as an art form – because,…

Burning the candle at both ends

is bad enough but when the candle starts burning in the middle you KNOW you’ve got it wrong. There is something mindbogglingly negative about starting the day at an 07.00 networking meeting knowing that the last appointment in the same day is at 19.30 – over twelve hours later… Especially now – half way through…

In the doghouse again

Actually she hasn’t mentioned doghouse (or that I’m in it) but we blokes self-house (if there actually is such a thing) to save our spouses the bother… Have just got in, completely forgot she is going out tonight (actually not all that surprising, day-off Friday so a short week and waking up yesterday convinced it…
