      Morning all

      It's damp out but drying up. Warmer than previous days at 6 degrees with a high of 7. It'll be mostly cloudy with a little bit of sun poking through all day. Low chance of rain. Barometer up to 1008 mBar.

      First coffee being drunk.

          Morning.

          Very grey.

          Grey overcast.

          Warmer at 14.6 deg in here.

          Dry.

          1008 mBar and 60% RH.

          Wednesday apparently.

          Very Reithian in here at the moment.

          Hush!

          Zeity might be listening!

          <hiatus>

          Walk walked.

          Still quite cold out there.

          Lunch: scrambled egg and poached tomato on Morrisons sunflower and pumpkin seed toast, bramble jelly on Morrisons wholemeal sunflower and spelt bread, red pippy corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

          Sadly there are no Randolph Scott films to watch this afternoon.

          <hiatus>

          More potching undertaken in the shed, another bag of concrete mix bites the dust.

          Dunno how successful this bit will be but time will tell.

          <hiatus>

          Late afternoon entertainment: "Trucking Hell" on Paramount, Two eps.

          Tea: the rest of the roast beef (still meh) with carrots & onions, so hot the lack of flavour wasn't obvious, stewed apple & custard, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

          Entertainment: Tudur Owen's TV Flashback with Tudur Owen and another fine selection of stuff from the BBC Wales archives.

          Now: The Repair Shop since "The Tudor monastery farm Xmas" started off with how to stuff & cook a pig's head and nothing much else appealed particularly.

          Interspersed with bits of "Filthy House" wherein a crushed mouse (skeletonised) was found under a desk.

          I think we've all been there one way or another.

          Now watching "The Holcroft Covenant (1985)" with that Michael Caine chap, this deriving from a Ludlum book of some seven years prior apparenty.

          I've seen it before & read the epic & have no recall of it whatsoever.

          It proved amusing enough, Mr Caine giving his usual good value.

          Now watching "Cymru Wyllt Gudd" on S4C.

          It's rather good.

          Though the subtitles needed turning on.

              Morning denizens

              Grey, dry, 6°C day out; and so it shall remain, apparently, with no variation predicted until nightfall, when the moderate possibility of rain arises

                Could be worse; could have been a Linux desktop

                  If they are using Office365, etc, then just use your Mac for that, leave the other crud for connecting to their network.

                  On the other hand, if you've been given a Thinkpad (or similar) that has a USB-C charger, then you've got a >60W power supply for charging your iPad or other USB-C devices. And we all know that not all power supplies get returned at the end of contracts.

                    Got one of these on the way from Client B. ready for starting on Monday.

                    I also just found out that they are a Lotus Notes operation. I know banks tend to run a lot of legacy stuff but I'd never have taken the gig if I'd known that

                      My client uses O365 but you need a token to access it from a device that isn't theirs and they don't give those to externals.

                      Good call on the power supply... I may have to lose mine when the time comes.
