Getting ready to go vote, and spending some time with a MetService tech (our radar died at work last night, seems that the MetService upgraded it to high priority, someone's coming down the country this morning to have a look).

Staring at my router's control panel thinking "Holy crap, when did we get cabinetised - wasn't connecting at 20Mbit last time I looked!", and also watching a spacewalk on NASA TV.

Can't wait for the data to actually be let loose :D

Well, After taking the dead bird out that the cat brought in and burrying it, then filling up the pool because it wasnt sucking water up (bad things happen when that happens) I have gone upstairs and emptyed the container which is catching the water dripping from the tap because it didnt get a cap put on it when the dishwasher was taken away because it had broken down (again) but no one had noticed the dripping so it kind of flooded the kitchen a bit.

Hopefully that makes sense.

Oh and Mum and Dad are away - always handy when these things happen.

now I shall go clean up the feahters in the hall....

RedJungle: By the way - this is exactly what twitter is for folks!

(Side thought: have you looked at integrating twitter with the GZ 'Status' stuff Mauricio? could then let people have their twitter status beside their names or something?)

Just a note, follow-up from this earlier post: if you don't know yet folks, I've worked with Redjungle to deploy the Geekzone <-> Twitter integration.

And now I am going to have lunch...
