    Just found (and fixed) a data issue prior to a demo this afternoon...

    Will need to check the scraper after the demo to find out what the cause is (seems to be a race condition where it returns some updated values to their original versions in some circumstances. I suspect it's going to be a bugger to identify and fix).
    merely at clientco for the entertainment


      Lunch, by the way, was M&S Southern not-fried chicken drumsticks left over from the other night


        Walk briskly walked, green ring closed

        A while ago, actually, but while I was out a Teams alert popped up on my watch. A rather interesting problem had been uncovered. But I investigated when I got back, worked out what had occurred, and decided there's nothing to be done about it tonight

        So I'm watching the car programme, which is about a Humvee, and TBH not that interesting - I like the bits they usually have about rebuilding engines and gearboxes and so on, but this one is about dull stuff like fitting a water heater in the back so you can go camping in it


          Tea has been chicken casserole with chips and peas, and very tasty it was too

          Accompanied by Trucking Hell, because there was a Crouch Recovery service van stopped at the pedestrian crossing at lunchtime, which reminded me I had a few episodes of that still in the bank


            Bit of gardening, dug up some concrete blocks amongst other small jobs. Now TFBSZ
            …Maybe we ain’t that young anymore


              Further viewing has been part one of House of Maxwell and my word, what a singularly unpleasant person the Bouncing Czech was

              Wonder how the happy wanderers are getting on in Monaco? They clearly can't afford the Internet access over there

              Goodnight all


                Morning all
                CBS, etc, although it was only 7oC when we went out on our walk, but it looks like it's going to be a warm one
                …Maybe we ain’t that young anymore


                  Morning denizens

                  Rather grey start, but mild enough for the time of year at 7°C with 13° and slightly sunnier conditions expected by lunchtime. Barometers are still heading up at 1015/1023mB

                  I was woken (well, about 80% woken) betimes by an unsettling dream. However, as soon as I achieved a modicum of consciousness, I immediately worked out what it was about; just fretting about some fairly trivial household admin I've been putting off. Seems a bit of a waste to concoct such a perturbing confection of symbolism over such a minor matter, o subconscious mind of mine

                    Entertainment: Y&Y on about ATMs, cash, magick phones that pay for stuff, & things like that.

                    Oooo, post #349449. Wot a thing.

                    Shopping trip to Morrisons done, dusted, washed, dried, sanitised & put away.

                    When the fun stops, STOP.


                      Lunch: Scotch broth, with a mix of leftover wholemeal crusts and a slice of multiseed

                      Turned quite sunny out now
