The poor old Pope has been in for right old stick over the last few months. Much of it is richly deserved too, but none of it is as funny as Tim Minchin’s brilliant Pope Song.
Note: before pressing play please be aware that there are many, many naughty words…
I love working here, even though the drive down to Coventry is a pain in the arse. When we first started working in this building I was amazed by the effort put into making such a great working environment. So much money spent on R&D in the UK.
I still can’t get my head around why they decided to spend all this cash then change their mind less than a year later and sell us down the river to China.
Well, I can imagine why but it doesn’t mean that I have to like it.
I like my job. It’s interesting, varied and pays me enough to get by. I just hope that, come September, I can find another job like this closer to home
Oh, M1. We’ve got to know each other quite a bit over the last couple of years. I’ve been up and down your grey lanes far too frequently since my job moved down to Coventry.
It’s not working out for me. I’d like to start seeing other roads, and I don’t mean the M69.
It’s nearly time to get my penultimate assignment in for marking. I’ve been leaving these a bit late for this course (T175 OU course) and it’s always a bit hairy whether I’ll get it done or not.
This time I’m almost done with a whole day to go before the deadline. Go me.
Onwards and upwards, though
Setting off to work in the day is never that much fun. However, we do get to see some nice sunrises.
Mark was driving today and I saw this golden streak heading up from the sun.
This isn’t much compensation for having to drag my tired arse out of bed at 04:40 though
First day back at work after our extended Cypriot adventure.
We use a lot of cables at work. Lots. We have fibres and LAN cable travelling all over the place.
This photo is the rear side of one patch panel. One of many. We have many ethernets
Back home from Cyprus.
England, I love you but your weather is somewhat disappointing
