    Lunch is the rest of the soup I started yesterday.

    Felt like an hour of my life had been wasted by being dragged into a Microsoft support call because their search facility for SharePoint doesn't work properly despite them saying the index crawling has been completed. I was needed to prove that search doesn't work even for non-Admin accounts and thus another line on the idiot list was ticked off.

    Apparently if you do bulk imports via their own API indexing is bumped down to priority 4 in the backend (and can't be re-prioritised by someone with god rights over the tenant) and it can take weeks to properly do even if the crawl log says otherwise. As we have live human studies ongoing and getting access to study documentation is paramount, we've built our own search facility in SSRS that returns accurate results with a handy link so the support team can work. We were tempted to sell it back to them as an improvement on their own offering...

    Morning denizens

    Early(ish) start never happened, as sleeping me apparently decided it didn't want to wake up and efficiently swatted away all alarms until it was sated. But I feel thoroughly refreshed by all the extra snoozing, so that's fine by waking me

    Clear blue sky and 6°C out; no better than 7° expected, presumably because of the sky, and rain expected tonight. Barometers are bouncing back at 993/1000mB

    Morning.

    Dry.

    Sunny.

    Colder in here at 13.1 deg.

    1002 mBar, 29.6 in Hg, 751.6 Torr, 60% RH.

    Thursday.

    Walk (unabbreviated) walked in the intermittent wan sunshine.

    Warmer than yesterday due to the lack of wind.

    Lunch: Heinz leek & potato soup with Morrisons multiseed bread, bramble jelly sandwich on same, red corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: Oz border thing: S3 E1 & 2: dreadlocked chap kicking up a fuss, Chinese "food" par excellence: particularaly nauseating with bits of snake, beetles, and what looked like a dried flatworm, along with shedloads of nuts & leaves & suchlike.

    Looks like the dreadlocked one is a drug smuggler. Kilo of coke: 7.5 years in clink.

    Civet cat coffee beans.

    Pissing down now.

    NZ customs thing: the usual tons of Contac NT, the orange leaf smuggler (strip searched).

    Morning all
    3o out, no wind, and the pre-sunrise sky made me want to stay out longer and not start work.
    Saying that, most things would make me not want to do any work, but our lifestyle won't pay for itself (yet)

    Morning all

    Whitish-blue sky this morning. Dry. Currently 4 degrees ('feels like' 2) with a high of 7 later. It will cloud over more as the day progresses and rain is expected from 6pm onwards. Barometer up to 1004 mBar.

    Electrician expected today to do things to bring the flat up to whatever 'code' currently exists following some safety check the landlady had done a while back. He was supposed to turn up a couple of weeks ago but caught covid. I think it's mainly all the spot lights are not safety rated and my washing machine is too close to a shower. Personally, I'd remove the shower as it's rubbish but then the flat couldn't be marketed as two bed/two bath.

    Today's Kantar diary facts are:
    'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' premiers in Los Angeles with a tribute to the last Carrie Fisher 2017

    English football club Newcastle United is founded 1892

    Also useful to know, as it suggests I should check which code paths are different for a non-logged-in user

    I went into ModCP, turned off "Display Reputation" and was able to get in.

    ONCE.
    OK, that's a helpful clue at any rate - I'll have to dig into the rep code

    So I tried turning off the thanks/likes and reputation panes and then I could see mine, but still couldn't see yours. Can you check (reload a couple of times, just in case) and see if you can get to it now? It might be different for you viewing it, both because of your mod status and because it's your own page.

    Interestingly, I experimented with turning thanks/likes tab back on and could still see mine, which suggests a problem in the reputation tab. At least that's my own code, so it might be a bit easier to work out where it's falling over
    No luck.
    I even tried 3 different browsers.

    Walk briskly walked in the cold afternoon, green ring closed

    Looks nice out there but there's a pretty chilly, if light, breeze
