Friday and Saturday

A presentation in the morning about the future of Risk Management, followed by the farewell lunch of the Business Analyst Institute. One well attended, one less well attended. By the evening, nothing to do, though I did who a game of Empire Earth for the first time. Today was mostly taken up by the Diocesan seminar on the Church's response to homosexuality. Chatham House, sorry. Tonight we were boyless, with C at a ergo's house and D and M at a church social for supper and watching ROTK. That is all.

Pentecost

An odd sort of service today. The chairs and tables were set out like a cafe today and coffee, tea, cake, juice and, later, bread and wine were served. After the service, we came home and played Mine a Million, which Matthew won, narrowly beating me. After supermarket shopping, it was time for chicken. After that, the evening seemed almost over, except for stori

I hate it when it does that

one false click and you're nobbled. ... except for storian and a couple of episodes of Joe 90 before bedtime. Storian is a Bislama word meaning slightly more than chat, conversation, social interaction, not quite translatable. There are words like that. Stamba is another. 'Stump' isn't right, not even nearly!

Southern Star

Sitting waiting for the boys, listening to Southern Star because ZB is the only other station I can find on this dodgy car radio. No doubt the boys will have finished at youth group soon. Local news: we should be prove to live in Stokes Valley because a nutter there has sent more than 80,000 txts in the last month. Yes, we're all impressed. I would guess that he is unemployed, to say nothing of in serious need of a real life. Cost in May, unlimited txts: $10. Cost in June, 500 cap, $15,910.

Email clients too clever by half

Pretend my PIN is 1234. I should be able to send mail to ringbark+1234@post.livejournal.com and have it come out here. Oh no, a clever client knows it can't be right to have a + in the middle of an address, so I just get 'you have entered an incorrect email address' and that's the end of the game. TPC fax addresses aren't welcome either, though they are admittedly very ugly. An example would be remote-printer.ian@4448708311915.iddd.tpc.int but without one of the fours. Xtra's wap client hates it.
