10 Dec

Ann is in Paris with her mate. I’ve been finetuning her (friends) laptop and then today I spent 5 hours setting up a router and wireless network for Matt’s friend. This week I went to Brno in the Czech Republic and had a very productive meeting with our partners CDV. Nice city, nothing fancy but nice Mittel Europe with a castle and churches and stuff.

I am very tired, I’ve been burning the candle at both ends trying to catch up on my work after the 10 days illness I had (see blogging below). Until Nicolas starts in the New Year I am the only one in my section of NewRail so if I am ill then it all just piles up. I am interviewing Tuesday for another Research Associate, so hopefully next year I shall have two people to help me and an admin person. I cannot wait.

Must go, got to see if I can get Alcohol 120% to work and the read some more of Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson, it has me gripped..
