Waiting at the airport..

I am sitting at London Heathrow airport waiting for a connecting flight to Boston.. The first flight was delayed for over 2 hours because of a technical failure in the air conditioning/pressure system.. Finally after trying to repair it for a while the tech staff decided they need to change the plane. Duh. On the other hand it is good that they take security and mainteinance seriously :)

I shot some photos while wandering bored around the airport.. I wish Advogato supported linking of images somehow.. Maybe raph doesnt want to have us fill the harddisk with random holiday photos, but I wish I could even link an image from a remote server.. On the other hand that would allow the use of Web Bugs(tm) to track you, dear readers (are there any? Hello? :) and I wouldnt even think of committing such a horrible crime! But nevertheless, I think it would be nice to have a possibility to add an image to the diary every now and then. Hm.. Of course linking to images via a hyperlink would work.. I need to think about this.

Ok, they are starting to board the plane finally, gotta get in the big aluminium bird!

..and finally at Helix Code. After a nice cab-ride from the airport I arrived to the office and met the hard workers who were still hacking. We decided we were hungry and went off to Kendall Square to get some protein units. The first chinese restaurant was closed, but the second one was open. I remember eating shrimps and chicken, but I was really tired.. (the time was around 5 am in Finland at that time) So off to bed. The "barracks" turned out to be an excellent place to stay, very nice apartment with a nice, comfortable bed.. YummyzZzZZZ....

. . .

Ok, now I feel good! Got some nice sleep and it's a beautiful morning, the sun is shining through the windows and I am sitting in the living room writing my diary and waiting for the other guys to wake up.. One tends to wake up in strange times when changing timezones :)
