Phoon

I've lived with TMJ syndrome for most of my life. I sympathise, but must confess that as I've aged, its become less painful less often - or perhaps my joints are just wearing out?

Work

Today we moved our office from the abandoned residential home they sold out from under us to a portakabin on a vehicle depot. There is no room for most of our secure and confidential data to be with us, and general things were badly planned and even the management didn't know what was happening. Spent an afternoon showing various top people around the new accomodation, and shockingly they displayed total horror and seem to be doing something about it.

Nevertheless, the trade unions are involved and at 8am tomorrow there will be a protest and possibly industrial action. It's been a long while since I've stood on a picket line (actually it was 1995 when I was arrested for fly-picketing a postal depot!).

Code

The shoddy mess which is gtkdial escaped into the world last weekend, and has been well received in general. I want to totally rewrite things next. My ISP is extremely unhappy with the bandwidth consumed by downloads - imagine how upset they'd have been if I hadn't doltishly misspelled the URL in the download link?

Music

My interest in music has been rekindled lately - partly by the new Kingsbury Manx LP, which I love very much. Looking forward to the UK release of A Silver Mount Zion's next effort...
