Now with pluses and minuses

Why is it now whenever I look at a McDonalds do I start thinking of boobies?



Pluses
  • Miss Minimouse has discovered baking and is cooking sponge cakes.
  • Only a few days to go before bank account recovery day (in theory)
  • Contract extended
  • Solved layout problem in last whine list. Using DOCTYPE to keep IE6+ out of quirks mode is a good plan.
  • Solved Oracle problem in last whine list. Was using a join which generated multiple rows for every event (this is meant to be good practice as it speeds up queries), but then forgot to filter them. Result generating 130million rows on an update instead of just a couple of hundred. Go me :-)
  • Bought two 26" LED Full HD TVs to add to TV mania. On buying them discovered these had both a satellite and digital terrestrial tuners in, which for £140 each was mega bargain IMO. That's mother in law (and our room at her house) stocked, plus 32" went to fathers spare room. My laptop now has a proper screen whereever I go :-)
Minuses
  • Due to a large amount of inattentiveness, my garden has been overtaken by a lot of brambles. Getting them out causes big scratches on my pawsies
  • Bogged down in second jawb. Needs sorting out over this week.
  • Contract extension is only for 6 weeks (and I'm two weeks in already). I think they'll renew it further, but I don't want to be biting my fingernails every month or so, so must shop for new job. Pissed that its a short duration because turned down possible London finance job to take it
  • Can't get the TVs to operate as 1920x1080 monitors - 1650x1080 seems as far as they'll display properly..
  • This diary is missing juicy boobies (unlike everyone elses)

1 TV, 3 monitors, 2 laptops which may or may not count.
