      Did DHL ever turn up?


        Good morning all

        There's a pale wispy cloud/blue sky thing going on this morning. Dry. Dim while the sun continues its inexorable rise to its zenith. Currently 13 degrees, with a high of 17 later. It's expected to be sunny. Rain due overnight. Barometer down to 1013 mBar.

        Realised I didn't have an 'exit sub' if the user didn't select the import files, so I have to add that this morning. Demo at 1430. It's only for me and the other BA to use but it still needs testing as it'll be doing the first pass analysis for our data migrations.

        Today's Kantar diary fact is:
        Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner becomes the first woman elected President of Argentina 2007

          Yes they did, slightly unexpectedly. Followed shortly thereafter by a phone call by the supplier to check that the delivery had finally happened OK and to apologise again.

          Rather amusingly, I had an email from DHL yesterday morning to say a delivery was coming to me today. I couldn't work out what it was until I searched my emails for the reference number and realised it was Arlo shipping me a replacement camera. I wonder when that will arrive.

              Morning denizens

              It was quite sunny out forty-five minutes ago, but now it's back to grey and rather breezy

              Currently 14°C with 17° expected this afternoon, no rain predicted during daylight hours, barometers distinctly down at 999/1007mB

              The hand coffee grinder has produced coffee which, once brewed, tastes much as my coffee usually tastes.

                You never expect the Arlo Inquisition?

                I want to see the hand of history on his collar.


                  Heinz chicken soup with sesame bloomer toast for lunch


                    Breakfast was a couple of crumpets. Lunch was tomato soup.


                      Walk briskly walked, green ring closed

                      I checked the recycling bin on the way out, and it's got one bag at the bottom with very little in it. Even if I added my stuff, including Amazon boxes, it wouldn't be more than a third full. So I'm going to leave it this week
