Tiki Bar

It seems like our house move is one stage nearer completion having agreed terms based on the surveys.  As such it seemed a good time to open the Tiki Bar for a cocktail or two after hours.  J and A recently bought some strange exotic liquor back from Hungary (Unicum) which seemed like a good idea - until you tasted it.  Amazingly bitter and the sort of aftertaste you just cannot get rid of.  Seriously - it is now some 8 hours later and I can still taste it - uck!

SatMap 1.42

There's a new firmware version for the SatMap and an upgrade to SatSync.  They fix some small bugs and add a few new features - the best of which is the ability to recognise newly imported routes without a restart - nothing major though.  Link in the title...

New Job - Week 3

So, I am in week three of my new job - just starting to find my feet - and loving every minute of it.  I have a team of 8 in the UK and 3 in Singapore split between new client projects, enhancements/fixes and QA.  They are all dedicated, professional and fun to work with - qualities which run through the rest of the organisation also.  What I am most happy about though is the refreshing change of moving from an industry in decline to one that is growing.  Photo is the one sent around company-wide to introduce me - oh dear :)

Kris has decided to sell her Smart Roadster - so, if you know anyone that would like it pass this on to them.  It's black/black with ALL the usual Smart toys (flappy-paddle gear box, auto roof, air-con, elec everything...).  It's a 55 plate, MOT Sep, Tax Feb, full Smart service history (last in Nov) and has all keys, receipts, etc.  There's more info on Pistonheads (link in title).

Snowed in

Got to the train station this morning to find it all snowed in.  Eventually a train turned up (30 mins late) but was so full no one else could get on.  They then started canceling other services.  So, I went home and dialed in to the office for the day instead.  Turns out to be a good choice - we've had much more snow since and it looks like all trains might be canceled coming back out of London!  Here's a pic from my front door webcam.
