    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.

    210 Deg at 15kts is full 15kts crosswind (runways are 30/12) so just within limits - crosswind limit is 17kts for small aircraft. However gusting to 35 due sometime soon plus it's overcast and generally miserable looking out there.
    Just grabbed a coffee in the kitchen and checked the anemometer which was showing 8.2 m/s, that's calmed down on overnight. Visibility at ground level is sub 200 metres.

    Morning.

    Wet. Very wet. Very very very wet. Otter's pocket wet.

    Grey. As grey as a 's arse grey.

    Sunless.

    Warmer at 17.6 deg in here, 19.5 deg in the kitchen, 14.5 deg in the leanto.

    1000 mBar, 29.53 in Hg, 750.06 Torr, 14.5 psi, (down from 1006 last night), 74% RH.

    Wednesday apparently.

    Pondy might not be flying but I certainly am: world feels as if it's not quite connected to me at the moment. .

    Meanwhile back in 16th January 2019 NF was spending £700 on fixing the brakes on one of his cars (not the Orion), while I was irritated with the Esteemed Customers, so no change there then, other than the one who reckoned he wasn't getting enough help despite getting more than anyone else in the group. It was ever thus.

    I wonder if the little git graduated. I suppose he probly did last summer or this summer if repeats were required.

    The rain stopped. The wind hasn't.

    Lunch: scrambled egg and poached tomato on Morrisons soya and linseed toasted crust, a yog (or did I? I think I forgot the yog), bramble jelly and marmalade on slices of "toast" (in this case a bit more like warm bread, could have done with longer in the toaster), 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Sun came out and a walk (unabbreviated) walked in the afternoon sunshine & semigale.

    More work done on the component list: stone me there's some obscure stuff on there.

    Tea: meatballs with rice n peas, a mini Xmas pud with custard, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: Wheeler Dealers S13 E7: Landrover Series IIA 1967. Another of those WTF? eps where it's turned into "the ultimate bugout vehicle". Aside from not having a gun rack of course. .

    The Repair Shoppe: toy locomotive, kite, peculiar painting.

    The Body in the Bag on 5: the chap from GCHQ found in a duffle bag in his bath back in 2010.

    National Park Mysteries bollox: already watched.

    Dr Pimplepoper: ditto clip show.

    Skin A&E S3 E11.

    Windy - 17 mph with gusts up to 37 mph (15 / 30 kts) from the SSW. There was some blue sky amongst the fluff when I got up but that's gone now. Currently 17 degrees with a high of 18 forecast. Rain expected over lunchtime.

    I was supposed to go to the office today but the chap I'm working with decided it was too much hassle with the rail strike so at home I am, and this time there will be no mad dash to the office.
