I find our IT team make me smile. 

 

I've been locked out of my "everything" all morning. 

 

Got hold of the IT team and despite it all being my fault, there were no fingers pointed, no harsh words - in fact nothing but pleasantries and friendliness. 

 

Bloody rock stars.

I fixed a bug today.

 

This problem has been sitting there for years. Until today.

 

The world is now a tiny bit better.

"Hello IT"

 

"My system doesn't work!"

 

"Have you tried switching it off and on again?"

 

"Oh yes - now it works! Thanks!"

 

"No problem. Have a good day!"

 

(With thanks to Moss and Roy).

That's largely how it went. 

 

I'm still baffled as to how I haven't been thrown out of Geekzone after all of these years of not knowing anything.

This made me smile today. 

 

 

 

I'm a huge Foo Fighters/Dave Grohl fan anyway, but this was cool (to me).

I made my first Hackintosh today. It was remarkably easy and (almost) everything works.

How did you guess ;)

 

I've ordered a compatible wifi card - it's one of those things that is handy on a laptop.

We went for our first walk for a month today. 6:45am and the weather was a nice 30 degrees and amazing. I've really missed being able to get out.

Knowing that Level 3 means I can (should I so desire) behave in exactly the same manner as I have been for the last 4.5 weeks.
