Tonight was good and happy, thankyou to all. I was distinctly non-corporate and enjoyed myself thoroughly. I even told Nick that Perl sucked, and he was either sober enough to agree with me, or drunk enough to agree with me.

It looks as if I'm going to miss the next B-Movie. I'm not sure, it might be managable, although I'm supposed to be in Cardiff at 8am the day after. I'm a bit annoyed at that since B-Movie is good. I could do it, but then I'd get almost no sleep before the Sunday. On the other hand, I could sleep Saturday, and the last B-Movie was so good that I'm tempted to just go and travel really late.

I must get more music that I actually enjoy listening to in the car; I'm on a diet of Orbital, Sisters, Robert Miles and VNV Nation at the moment. I will be getting more bits for the car and hopfully replacing the breather box, some intake stuff, and a gasket fairly soon in the hope of getting the air pressure right inside the crank case. Right now it's still positive pressure. It's so reassuring that I have no idea what I'm doing, and no instructions, but I'm assured it isn't hard.

As I get home, I discover that our Java processes are crashing on a UML system. This is not a huge surprise, since the last time I used UML, sendmail was crashing. It is a pain though. I have challenged the team to reproduce the crash on any non-UML box before I investigate. I don't particularly look forward to debugging a SEGV in JVM internals.

Work tomorrow. It's been suggested that I don't bother commuting, but ... If I had network there, it would be much easier and I could do my research. There's a limit to how much I can produce without research. Perhaps I can "borrow" a terminal.

    Nobody in the USA has heard of Flanders and Swann. If the country had an editor, I would write to him to express my unmitigated disgust.
