Been busy otherwise

Oh, faithless me ...

I've created another blog

For a good cause, of course :) As well as in a quite different language and for a very distinct purpose, most likely only interesting for a good two handfuls of people.

So there's no need to look sullen...


Morning consideration

"The average, healthy, well-adjusted adult gets up at seven-thirty in the morning feeling just plain terrible." (Jean Kerr)

I can relate to that! But - getting up at five-thirty as I do (and don't ask why!), does that make me all the more allowed to feel plain terrible or does it disqualify me as I'm not well-adjusted?



Make the chain.

Never break the chain.

Now there's a thought....

Credits: well I'm sure y'all can figure that one out for yourselves... ;)


Microsoft's anti-virus software plan

According to a Reuters's news stor, Microsoft is planning to start selling anti-virus software, to -

"protect personal computers running Windows against malicious software, the worms and viruses that have plagued users with data loss, shutdowns and disruptions in Web traffic in recent years" (quote from Reuters)

Erm, excuse me for a minute. Wouldn't it make a lot - maybe even a whole lot - more sense to work on improving the security in Windows, IE and Outlook rather than start selling an add-on to protect against the shortfalls???

I, personally, think so. Very, very much think so!


Now with certificate!

No, not the blog or the site here - but yours truly is very happy indeed to boast the ability to claim being a Certified Associate Project Manager :)

The well-deserved beers after the exam on Friday really, really tasted good!


A question of taking precedence

Real life just does that at the moment.

Let me just say that I am seeing a lot more of the PMBOK than I am of the web...


An urge to write

I just know that I have it. Confirmed - easily - by the fact that I had to do a lenghty post to day at H2G2, even at a silly hour.

I can live with that :)

I even think I know what my future, real, blog will look like. And be called.



The posting? This one.


Vade Mecum

From my Bloglines account of Dictionary.com's brilliant Word of the Day service for Friday June 4, 2004:

vade mecum \vay-dee-MEE-kuhm; vah-dee-MAY-\, noun:
1. A book for ready reference; a manual; a handbook.
2. A useful thing that one regularly carries about.

Oh - a towel!!!

(check www.towelday.org or just about any volume of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy if you are not enough of a sassy frood to know what that's all about...)


Monday morning music

Here is where you'll always find me
Always walking up and down
But I left my soul behind me
In an old cathedral town

The joy that you find here you borrow
You cannot keep it long it seems
But gigolo and gigalette
Still sing a song and dance along
Boulevard of broken dreams

MMmmmmmmmmmm..... :)
