    Thrashing about trying to sort out database encoding problems

    I wouldn't mind if the problem was that it doesn't work; it's that it works fine for me, but breaks whenever admin tries it. I've got every bit of configuration I can think of set up the same way, and it still works. Break, damn you, so I can work out how to fix you!

    ^ Shocking. can't get the apes these days. Quite quite shocking.

    X8 home this evening jiggety jig.

    It's still misty and raining.

    Got the cutlery that loaned to the new neighbours.

    It's been through a dishwasher so I'll have to wash it properly.

    Tea/dinner this evening was M&S battered haddock.

    I managed not to over cook it so it was rather nice.

    Also having read about The Latest Superfood, I bought some mushrooms (Morrisons, reduced) & fried some of those to go with it.

    I put the shirts in the WM, they should be finishing about now.

    The Spot on the Strangelove Arse was doused with further generous quantities of all the antiseptics I have.

    <interstice>

    Now attempting to find something to watch.

    The choice is so limited.

    <interstice>

    Which turned out to be "Minority Report (2002)" with that Tom Cruise chap.

    Minority Report (2002) - IMDb

    It was good.

    From a Philip K. Dick short story.

    Tea tonight has been a ribeye steak with the usual bits, and exceedingly nice it was

    Not sure if admin will be back for more database shenanigans tonight. Anyway, I'm going to follow the example of Dr. S. and find something good to watch, and I may well treat myself to a beer or so at the same time

    The entertainment started with a rewatch of V for Vendetta (2005), which really is an excellent film

    And then a further rewatch of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011), which is also very good; but as each M:I film manages to go even further in impressiveness of stunts and such, so each earlier one pales slightly. But I'm rewatching it and the next one as a buildup to rewatching the latest one, so it's good to be reminded of the increasing scale

    Goodnight all

    Can't be all that good I only bought it twice. :

    Dreary.

    Wet.

    Grey.

    Miserable.

    Windy.

    Both washing machines are on, one with the sheets, and the other with the remainder of the cottons.

    It should all be over by 12:30, then the drying starts.

    Thought it might be good to change the sheets this week since it's not been done for a while, however one might define "a while".

    Off down town shortly after my dump, it's tax the car day and off on the weekly dvd hunt.

    Lets see how many dups I can come up with today.

    It was 3 last week.

    <interstitial pause or hiatus>

    Another foot of dvds.

    Including "Harry Brown" to replace the expensive one with the read error.

    Afternoon all big dog walk earlier, now getting ready for the rugby.

    Had an interesting chat with the client earlier.
    Him: you know that test you’re doing on Monday?
    Me: Yes, the one we have planned for weeks, that I started work on last week and where you are fully aware that the environment I do the test in will not be available after the test is done.
    Him: yes. The question is, if we wanted to use that environment after your work what would we need to do?
    Me: A full refresh from another environment. You reduced the time for this test to such a short level, that with your agreement I cut corners and told you that I was only doing them to hit your timescale and the result would be a non-functioning environment, and you were happy with that.
    Him: yes, well, if we wanted to run some things through that environment, when is the latest we could take a backup of it before your test on Monday?
    Me: Two weeks ago before I started the preparations, as discussed and agreed with you.
    Him: Oh. OK. So there’s not...
    Me: No.
    Him: But could we...
    Me: No, you made the decision on the time. Your decision, now you get the consequences I told you about.
