    sounds like a winner if your contract is up. Take a few months if the war chest allows.

    I think that's possibly one of the rare times when a new ankle biter could be considered 'convenient'

    I used to use DynDNS until they started charging an arm and a leg. As it's been at least five years, and probably longer, since my IP address changed, I just use that.

    (Also, I'm not sure how well a DNS name would work in a PHP XDebug config file on an EC2 server. I daresay it'd be fine, but adding DNS lookups to the process of enabling remote debugging on a here-today-gone-tomorrow server just feels vaguely fragile to me.)

    I think Virgin Media Business offer them, but I'm just with plain old Virgin Media.

    Last time it changed, they gave me one that had previously been geolocated to some remote spot a few miles north of Neath, so that's where Google Maps insisted on starting for me for a few weeks

    It's come over awfully dark. I think that forecast rain is on its way.

    Oddly it went really dark then got slightly lighter but no rain.

    Two bloomin' spot lights in my kitchen have just gone. Good because I can swap the halogens for LEDs (after much will they/won't they work debate) but bad because I absolutely detest the getting up ladder, balancing on a work top / clinging to a cupboard activity. It's all very unsafe and I don't like it.

    The contract is up in April but I've already told the client I'm having a few weeks off.

    We've just had the awkward call. Mr Third Party Expert is going to spend three weekends looking over the cabling contractors' shoulders and making sure they're doing it right. He won't configure anything or do any actual testing, he's just coming along to gee people up.

    Lunch, after a hard morning of incantationisating, has been a Herta jumbo frankfurter, on a finger roll, with French's yellow mustard.
    and earl grey tea.
    very nice it was too.

    in other news, it's gone a bit black over Bill's.
