Working life

I have been summoned from Côte d'Azur because a well known client is concerned about their things. 
Update [2015-9-28 16:53:15 by georgeha]:Whoa, what page widening! Still getting used to my new phone, and it's massive pictures.


They have done the equivalent of forcing EBCDIC on an iPhone and are now complaining the iPhone doesn't work as well as it should. They need EBCDIC because it's a checkbox applied to everything, regardless of if it makes sense.

I'm not sure how long my days will be, and the local bigwig suggests not leaving my hotel in the Royal Docklands without a cab. There may no chance for any interactions.

At least I can complain about the high prices, and how the hotel bar only offers Guinness, Boddies and wifebeater on tap.

How long are you staying in the fair city of Londinium for? I work in C London so could meet up in Docklands.

Leaving Saturday by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #2 Wed Sep 23, 2015 at 04:01:33 AM EST
and I'm not sure if this will be one of those ten hours a day in a print room visit, or one of those run by banker's hours.

It should be against the law by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #6 Wed Sep 23, 2015 at 03:58:06 PM EST
to send a geek to a customer with the expectation that they might upload a gig of logs, and then house them in a hotel where it takes two hours to upload a gig of logs.

A-and, the hotel bar has Boddies, Guinness and wife-beater on tap.

But that was my evening, two hours of uploading, dinner at the closest restaurant, and more reports over Boddies.

Sorry.

A pint or so of flat, tepid yeasty ale in England by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #14 Mon Sep 28, 2015 at 11:48:13 AM EST
was on my bucket list. Since this trip wasn't planned I didn't bring any suspenders, so I feared I couldn't get any real ale.

Having a few beneath Big Ben only added to it, thanks so much.
