Sat here in the lab on a Sunday morning, coding and playing with an ocilloscope with the mother of all fecking hangovers.

I used to be able to handle it.

I've tried two cans of "Red Devil", two packets of peanut M&Ms, two Toffee Crisps and a bag of Salt & Vinegar "McCoys". Why does my head hurt so much?

Lord!!!! Why hast thou foresaken me?

Just drink water and nothing else.

Before you go to bed after a night on the lash sink a 2 litres of water and a few more when you get up.

Job done.

SP's is the most important advice. I tend to take a couple of nurofen before I go to bed...

Bollocks. Try drinking in moderation or shut the feck up. Cant stand people whining about hangovers. So childish.

A glass of dioralyte before bed is the way forward.

But, if you're sober enough to remember that you need it, then you probably don't need it.

I thought it was "Red Bull" that gave you wings...

Where do I get said miracle cure?

Also, I think it's about time I flushed my kidneys. Water is boring. What's that stuff that sends your urine a funny colour, and don't say lager!!!

If it is of any consolation you probably won't be old for a long time with this lifestyle.

I've got quite a good lifestyle. It just happens that there's feck all in the vending machines and the canteen is shut.

I don't need a lecture from a steroid pumped italian arse bandit.

I don't think so. Just dehydration. That and the fact that I was starving.

Should've had a fry up for breakfast. T'other half is working so I thought I'd pop down to the office rather than make myself a proper breakfast.

Ah well. I'm feeling better now so off home for me.

Early start tomorrow - supporting one of my engineers who's gone out to Shanghai for the week. so a week of 5 a.m. starts for poor little old me.

Note to self, do not get pissed tonight!

Do something interesting like switching on and off different lines on the serial or parallel port from your software and connect it up to the oscilloscope.

Don't do the drink two pints of water before you go to bed thing unless you want to piss the bed.

I learned this the hard way.

That's what I'm doing. Timing some code.

Gosh.

Do people still do that?

I do.

Not only that I count processor cycles when I write assembler...

I once had great fun with a scheduler for a simulator. It was supposed to kick off different chunks of code 20 times a second, 10 times a second and so on. I was able to see how long each chunk was taking and how the whole scheduler was behaving. Was able to improve the scheduler based on the visual cues provided.

Yup, it's a great way to see what's going on.

When I used to write computer games I used to change the background colour at the start and end of chunks of code so that I could see how long they took.

Those were the days...
