Scatalogical start to the day. Spent 230 quid in servicing & MOTing Mrs's car. But is passed the MOT.
Just eat a bacon and mushroom on crusty white and drunk a mug of coffee, listened to The Fall on the drive in, so I feel pretty damn good.
And its Friday, so no work for 2 whole days. Shit, I hate this job, I hate arsey Americans that make lots of excellent Brits redundant whilst keeping on arse-licking Dutch. Hooray for mediocracy for the mediocre are currently inhereting the world. Its what happens when we strive for a meritocracy. The people that suceeed therefore are not the best, they are the people who are best at stepping on other peoples heads to climb the greasy career pole. As is evidenced in this organisation, Qed, which suceeded because the product was the right one at the time, now it isn't so right anymore, but it tries to get on by garnishing its tatty image, and using cheaper and cheaper (thus worse and worse) developers to make new bits. I must get out of this area before long, and find work in another sector that has nothing to do with manufacturing, which is just about dead. Seeing as us Brits gave all our best ideas away to the Yanks, jet engines, fast helicopters, computers. Why, in 1989 I was working on a British built computer, with a British operating system running British software. Now I have not come across that for a long time. Because there is no British computing industry. ICL went many years ago.
Stop moaning, I just hope that David is able to make his way, which I think is likely, given his liking for money and cleverness.
