new for old!

Spent I don't know how long rejigging my home network.
Typically, did things back to front

It al began when OH bought me a new tower pc and snazzy monitor as early Xmas present.

Several hours/days or do I mean 'daze' later, I have started using new pc and monitor. My original 'work space' was too small, so OH has constructed a bespoke work surface which fits on top of the original desk. Now, I can view the 22 inch monitor from the proper distance.

However, the age and construction of the house have defeated modern technology. I cannot access the www from the new dining room! Wi-fi will not work and neither would using plug-in via the mains. Too many iron brick walls in the way. Also, this building has at least 3 separate ring mains.

blast from the past

Came across someone that I worked with during my days of torment in previous 'life'.
No idea why I 'let on' and said 'Hello'. guess I was being polite.

Well, I gained an update on the past nearly 7 years worth of what's been going on in that place and momentous changes are afoot for 2009.

The old place, scene and witness to my years of torment is to be closed and demolished in 2009. Two people I knew have lost their jobs completely, the head will not be in charge of the new site, but she still has her snout in the gravy trough/

Meanwhile, they are busy on a spending spree, using up funds on such things as a jolly to Iceland by a guy that was my junior and a proverbial waste of space. Politically correct sycophant with no knowledge of geology or of the physical side of Earth Sciences.
