I brought some sort of flu thing home from Slovenia, so I was under the cosh from the moment I got back. Yuck. Did a few days work, and then packed to go to Signatopia in Rotherham. They had done so much work setting it up, that it was sad when nobody came. (sigh).
Still, I got to see some old friends again, so I didn't waste my weekend entirely. Came home to find that ntl had gone down. Blamed myself, blamed my router, etc. When I rang their server status line it didn't admit any faults, and when I rang technical support they said they were shut for the Bank Holiday, but why didn't I visit their website (!) [expletive deleted] would if I could!
Generally feeling sorry for myself, and my friend Jules, too. (Hi Jules!)
Back to work today...

I just got back from Slovenia after an extraordinary week. 3,500 jugglers in a field full of big tops and little tents. Blazing hot on day one, then three days of rain that tried to turn the site into Glastonbury Fields Forever, but failed, so the sun came out for three good days - then one final hit of rain sent us on our way.
