Monday, November 05, 2012 error in my Amazon product upload file (a Non-Breaking Space in the Product Title, my fault) caused this error.

REALLY?!  ARRRGGGHHHH to half-a-job Harry programmers (you know who you are!)

On another note... a couple of Consultants at work were installing some newly GA'd software of ours when they ran across an error message that had 6 'Bangs' after it!!!!!!  We are compiling a new appendix where the severity of the error is indicated by the number of Bangs - if you see twenty, its time to hide under the table with a tin of tuna and play Ultravox's 'Dancing with tears in my eyes'......

(Yes, It's been an 'angry day', hence my overuse of the 'apostrophe').

Dennis has started posting again

Sometimes, I get into the habit of seeing Flickr simply as a repository for the occasional photo. I always keep an eye on Franc's, or Pete's or whoever's pics for a variety of reasons, but I seldom remember that other people have a view on MY life any more...

Decisions, decisions.

Does Google+ replace the Blog?

Decision made. I decide not to decide.

Company Org charts

A few people (Frasch and Chirag) have reposted an article about 'Secret' Microsoft - basically an excuse to change sides and hurrah for the underdog now Apple has fought its way past MS's lawyers and bullys (and innovation and marketing savvy and fit-for-purposeness).  Personally, I think thats just lazy bandwagon journalism, but the inclusion of this image was genius.

Which type of company do YOU want to be?

Hello Adam

I've just realised that I haven't blogged in a long time, and I think I'll try to re-ignite the habit. More importantly, I realised that if I didn't write this, or any subsequent posts, my latest child, Adam Joe Bean, may look back on this site in years to come, and feel sadness at not being mentioned.

Now, even if I never blog again, he'll know how much I love him, how proud of him I am already, and how pleased I am to have him in our world.

Welcome Adam.
