The other day, I was so drunk, I was almost about to drive home*. I was only prevented by the fact that my car was already at home. Should I lose my license anyway?
Anyhow, enough of that. My lovely Athlon 64 seems to be dead. Investigation (and IRC suggestions) point towards the PSU. Wondering whether I should contact the company that sold it to me or try the PSU out of this machine first (and if it is that, just buy another). How much does a decent PSU run to these days?
Not too sure about the spine - and the experience - of new manager on Crap Project at LCC. One of the team leads pointed out to her:
- No, I don't agree with the estimates. We cannot do all that work by the deadline.
- Getting people in less than two months before the deadline will not help to achieve it.
If they do can the project now, it would be a little silly - more has been achieved in the last 3 months than in the preceeding 18. By a factor of lots. There are hitches - like the pure use-case driven approach frequently means re-writes of "working" code as new features are added. Also, people come up with stuff like today's: "By the way, some external suppliers need access to some of the features". And yes, that "small feature" is in the end of May deadline (Citrix, anyone?).
I actually think that temperature variation may have played a part in my poor chilli germination record. I left the propogator in the conservatory - which is south facing. In the sun, it gets really bloody hot in there. Once I've moved the successful seeds out, I may move it inside and have another go. I must have purple jalapenos.
Can't decide whether to spend the evening trying to diagnose by 'puter or go to the pub quiz. The fact that I've got the day off tomorrow points towards the latter.
