Raising a nose from the grindstone

Urgh, horrid times. The universally reviled appraisal season is upon us at work, and of course there is no let-up with projects: m’hard-working colleagues are reeling as I type, muttering “you want a piece of me? Huh? Do you??”


Anyway, there is light at the end of the tunnel: the hours are letting up a little, the spring days we’re enjoying here in Blighty are gorgeous, the newsreader un-read count is in three digits instead of four, and I’m making it to the gym on occasion. So, do not fear loyal reader, normal service will shortly be resumed! Oh yes, and I’ve got some code to chuck out there very soon.


  1. Yep, I've goe through that kind of stuff recently. End of fiscal year and projects must be completed… *sighs*

    I hope it eases up for you quickly and smoothly. :-)
