    Morning denizens

    It threatens to be a bit of a sunny start out, though it'll get cloudier later. But the open skies mean it starts a bit colder, currently 9°C though expected to reach 18° this afternoon. And the barometers have rocketed back up at 1017/1025mB

    Finally, after several months of watching it on iPlayer from the start, we made it to the last 2 episodes of series 16 of Silent Witness tonight. We knew what these ones were, but it still hits home.

    Anyway, TFBSZ.

    The car earlier was the Land Rover Mk. II that I'd already seen them ruining a few months ago

    And the opal hunters had varied but mostly bad luck

    And then the latest episode of the Glasgow station programme, in which I learned a minor diagnostic technique for the information display panels at the end of each platform. I don't imagine I'll ever find this useful, but you never know

    Feeling quite tired after a reasonably productive day: for ClientGov, I finally got headless-browser-based integration tests up and running for the main service we work on (a thing I've been banging on about ever since I started on this team back in March). And for my 3D Möbius strip, I got it animating in a fairly trivial way. Next: using a Perlin noise map to provide a texture for the surface

    Goodnight all

    Tea has been sausages (the nice caramelised onion ones), chips and beans

    Did I mention the palaver over my finish date? I was supposed to finish on Friday September 30th, but then the consultancy found they'd miscalculated and it was supposed to be Thursday September 29th. Then they found a scrap of budget to extend, which they said was for ten days, giving Thursday October 13th.

    But it turned out (despite me repeatedly asking if everybody was sure) that what they meant was ten days from the original finish date, so Friday October 14th

    And as a result of this confusion coming to light last Friday, and people going off to have a look and work out what was going on, I have just signed a new contract for one more day of work

    I said all along, they shouldn't say things like "extend by x days" given how many times the contract dates have changed; they should just state the precise date they mean

    At least nowadays we don't have to fax this stuff…

    A brief but enthusiastic shower has been had.

    The pub for the 'after party' called to say they have taken a booking for the room I've booked so we'll need to vacate after two hours. I'm a bit grumpy about that.

    Lunch has been a roast pork and apple sauce bap, which was really nice

    The wind has died down a lot, but it's raining off and on - quite torrential earlier

    The sun just made a valiant attempt to shine through the clouds.

    Turns out chap at ClientCo now has covid so I'm extra happy the office visit was cancelled today.
