Guess that Friend
Game over.
Learn anything?
That's right...
Never get involved in a land war in Asia.

Well, let me break it down for you:

You have a total of 5 friends
You requested to guess 5 entries.
None was skipped due to invalid content (surprising?).
You made 5 guesses.
You got 5 correct.
Doing the math for you, that means you got 100% correct

Maybe I should get a few more friends and make it harder for me.

Well, a quietish weekend. I got some cleaning done - thats quite important for me, when the house is a mess it means my head is a complete mess. Sometimes cleaning it up, even bit by bit helps. It has helped a bit, but not too much. Every little helps. Around my parents for Sunday lunch (if they have a roast then I get invited to ensure that it gets eaten) and also for a little bit of tech support (i.e. dad has messed something up by playing, mum just asks a couple of questions). This time it was a crash course in what a smilie is/does. Hopefully she has the idea now - we'll soon see.

One funny thing, my eldest sister was around my parents and she knew I would walk over. She took the dog out for a walk and told me she'd meet me at the nearby park - its on my way and adds a little greenery. The last thing she told me was to walk slower - I'm a fast walker, REALLY fast. I'm in serious danger of actually meeting up with them before they reach the park, and I had over twice the distance to cover.....

Anyway, today was tough, as usual. Work is busy, how do you get work done when people are constantly knocking on the door. I wonder if staff and students wonder how I get work done - easy, I stay late and try to arrive early. I have lots of computers to build up and install and I keep on getting other silly stuff added to my list. I think I'll have to do a Saturday one week to sort stuff out - not what I want to do, but that seems to be the only practical plan.

Well, tomorrow is hospital visit for the Nerve Conduction Test. We'll see what happens. If you hear of brownouts or blackouts in Derby, UK then the reason is because they needed more voltage. I've blasted myself with 240V mains current a little too much and will probably need more for a reaction.

Never did manage to blast myself with 440V - the voltage we used to run a ancient AS400 on at my old work. The best chance was when I was searching for a network cable under the raised floor. My manager said 'watch out for the 440V line' I replied 'is it live'. His answer (and typical of the conversations we used to have) 'I don't known, let me know if it is if you find it'.

With that, I rest my case.
