    Default Canon fired and ....

    .... it boomed !

    The Programme director of an ex-client sent me an email this morning asking for some "help".

    An Indian company called IBM screwed the run up to a major SAP functionality activation and he needs me on a short term contract for a month (probably to mop up and work with them). Offered £130 a day more than my usual rate, though the role is in Hammersmith ( ).

    Accepted and contract being prepared now. £130 pd extra + Hotel expenses included as a deal maker

    A month of punting in London can't be bad

    I'm not even an atheist so much as I am an antitheist; I not only maintain that all religions are versions of the same untruth, but I hold that the influence of churches, and the effect of religious belief, is positively harmful. [Christopher Hitchens]

    Oh _that_ kind of cannon. So it wasn't more Waterloo celebrations.

    Good work, assuming the "extra" doesn't mean "over and above nothing"
