Been having fun with a-large-company-that-shall-remain-nameless. Trying to get their technical services team to do anything really teaches you the meaning of the word inertia. This is all part of the final project that my company will do before we wind it down, but it is all just taking soooo long.

The new web site for my much awaited open source project is coming along nicely. Also a little progress on my own site, undue.org.

Speaking of which, I should probably dig out the papers and have a go at my self-assessment tax return...
