    Ah, so the grey clouds are real. I was wondering whether the window tint at clientco was messing with my colour perception.

    Given our proximity to it, quite possibly!

    Should be there in thirty minutes or so, if the radar is to be believed

    Always reassuring to grab something you need off GitHub and find, on first using it, that it contains a syntax error which prevents it running at all. I mean, you don't have to go full TDD, but this thing couldn't even have worked on his machine

    Yeah I am close enough to smell them too!

    Nobody seems to be sharing though

    Well i just popped out to Tampopo for some noodles and it was still pretty pleasant - if anything a touch muggy.

    Mundane laundry - t-shirts and such - done. Now on to the tea towel wash.

    Tea towels done. And I remembered that I wanted chips for tonight's tea, so a large batch of them has just been brought to Phase I, and is now drying off.

    I may not have time to freeze the ones for tonight, but never mind

    Caught the X55 this evening at 17:15.

    It must be said that it's a lot calmer at that time of day after the rush has dispersed a bit.

    Tea was lentil <pffffft> soup which was as bland as bland can be but palatable enough.

    Followed by stewed green gooseberries and custard.

    Yum.

    Only another 2 hrs 50 mins to go.

    The aspect ration looked a bit odd at the start, as if it was 16:9 squashed to 4:3, but later on it looks ok at 4:3.

    3 hours of very tall people might get a bit wearing and neither the tv nor the bluray player seems to be able to correct it, despite much pressing of buttons.

    The Brian Brown takes the Fred Astaire part, with someone I've never heard of doing the Gregory Peck thing.

    Apparently the 1959 version upset Neville Shute so much it killed him.

    Apparently there's a storm coming.
