Not a lot to report work-wise so far this month, just the usual fun and games in the lead up to a code freeze. Testing, bug reports, all the stuff you always think your test team is supposed to be doing rather than your designers and engineers.

There are piles of French and Germans and Americans and Scandanavians and English and Russians at Sun who are always hanging around in the corridors together and having a bit of a laugh. And the women do much the same thing because that's just what women tend to to. It's the same when you wander out of the office for lunch... the walls and benches are lined with all manner of Europeans nattering away in their own fair tongues...

...but where am I supposed to go when I need to speak to someone who knows the subtle difference between mockit and clarty, and understands that a choob isn't for keeping your Smarties in and a stoater isn't a cat who's advanced from catching mice? :o)
