Will you play my record? One-track mind!

Hi Mandy.

It was good to chat at the weekend, of life, and love, and other walrus things.
Actually, it's not at all complicated. More like non-existent.
Oh well. I have friends, and friendship is never complicated.
An old friend smiled at me the other night, for the first time in a long while.
And that was nice. It was too unexpected to react, and smile back, 'tho.
Guess I was a bit tired from driving Sydney to Melbourne and then Brisbane in 6 days.

Hope you're having a great time.
I'm still tossing up the pros and cons of going to LA next month, but still very busy.
Should be possible sometime in the next couple of months or so.
Maybe around Christmas, when things are quiet ?

My web hosts had a huge problem over the weekend, with the new cloud system that was supposed to mean better reliability by spreading the load via another, multi-host, company with a few different locations in Oz. Not much effect for me, as I'm still developing and on their own servers, but really serious for those with established e-commerce sites. One of their clients runs a security monitoring business site, and they were posting some rather vitriolic comments on the blog page. Result was the hosting company aborted the plan in disgust, and for fear of losing their customers. Good thing I want to get everything working 100% before I go live. (Fingers crossed  :) )

I'm getting sleepy. Already wandering into dreamland.
Must go, before I start mumbling about things I should only dream about.  ;)

Cheerzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

In the southern hemisphere, Christmas comes in the long hazy days of summer when everyone and thing slows down

Yep. People close their offices, forget work for 2 or 3 weeks, and eat and drink themselves silly.
A lot head for the beach, or away on a trip somewhere. Anywhere no-one can reach them.  :)

I got news for you guys.  Even in the Northern Hemisphere, Christmas can be quiet for those without family to share it with.

I'll be a loner at Christmas, too.
Hey, maybe we could get together a few brokies who are in the same boat, and I'll come on over?  :)
Christmas might be the only break for me for a while.

Want to progress at work ?

Do you think that Knowledge, Hard Work and Attitude will get you there ?

Well, let's see.

If we give a percentage number to every letter of the alphabet, as in  A = 1%, B = 2%, C = 3% ... etc, we find that :

Knowledge = 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%
Hard Work = 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%
& Attitude = 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

... Not bad.

But, hey !

Bullshit = 2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103% !
and Ass Kissing = 1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = a whopping 127% !

Sooooo. What are you going to try ?  ;)
