Umm, yeah.

I'm silly and giggly and I've not even finished my second can of beer, but whatever, happy is good ;)

I spent most of today ringing various bits of our hosting company's accounts and customer services departments ... hopefully having escalated to customer services I might get somewhere ... I'm speaking to people with surnames now ;)

Had chinese takeaway for dinner, it was good :) Had London Pride to go with it - don't think I've ever drunk it before but it's nice ... even if it has made me tiddly.

I'm using J's puter and he's using mine coz he's doing mix CD creating stuff, and I'm the one with a CD burner (he has a DVD drive). The way this puter is set up is lousy for my mouse arm and my back. I dunno how he copes given his RSI.

Nothing more to say. Well, nothing to say in the first place, but whatever ;)
Current Mood: drunkdrunk
Current Music: Stuff I can't tell you about coz the mix CD lineup is secret

Can't you, like, move the mouse?

To a different position?

It's coz the monitor is diagonally across the back left corner, and the keyboard is also diagonally infront of that. So being right-handed the mouse needs to be by the right of the keyboard ... and that's not possible as there's not enough desk, so it's kindof infront and to the right of the keyboard. So there's more arm movement to get from keyboard to mouse, and more twisting of my back due to both the position of the keyboard/monitor relative to the desk and the mouse relative to the keyboard.

That won't make sense I guess. But I'll point it out next time you visit.

Ah, that explains why I lose at Quake in that seat.

Also, why is your post dated tomorrow?
Margaretpling on January 18th, 2002 02:34 pm (UTC)
Coz I forgot to change it. The javascript that sets the date screws up with Mozilla+Linux+GMT and sets it a day ahead. God knows why, I don't ;)

Changing it now.

Scott (housemate) and I went to the pub tonight and I said to him "You know what's really good that you can't get here? London Pride". I had a Caledonian 80/-, a Tetley's, and a Killkenny to make up for it though.

You can get Tetley's in cans here now, which is cool. I think that was what we consumed much of when I was visiting. I need to take another trip to the UK soon :)

Yeah we got a crate of Tetleys when you came to visit. Given the off-licence sells London Pride, we could get a crate of that when you next visit ;)
