Everything comes with a disclaimer

We used to have a cafeteria in our company, back before our old CEO nearly ruined us and laid off 85% of the employees. At that point the cafeteria couldn't make money so it closed. When we were taken over by a company with some money and vision, we got a sort-of-cafeteria back, with some fresh stuff but mostly pre-packed salads and sandwiches, and very stale pretzels. That's gone too now but in its place we're getting something genuinely useful : a fitness centre. Cool. The official opening announcement email arrived this morning, and in my view was rendered instantly ruined by the inclusion of a release form that we have to sign if we want to use the facilities.

Busy few days

Its been a busy few days for my alter-ego as IT person for the store where my wife works. They've been setting up both the new point-of-sale system for testing, and a remote site to the old point-of-sale system for a big event.

Try to get that to talk to a remote site over the internet - I dare you. Anyway, it's all up and running now and I've finally got the rest of the weekend to myself. ie. sunday afternoon. Time to spend some quality time with the Playstation.
