testing to see that all works :-)

A working day

On Thursdays I have teaching ALL day and so will try to put some updates and pix here as I go along. I’ve also been invited to support a student at an event she’s involved in after work. So it’ll be a long day and might not get documented until the day after. (especially if there are drinks after the event :-) )

first session

more XSLT and then off to the computrer lab! Pix to follow :-)


A quick bit for lunch while reading notes for the afternoon then off for the next session with a ‘guest’ speaker!.

Reverse engineering

Thursday is my teaching day and I had very little time to post anything but this is the update.

The working day starts with checking email on my phone on the tube to the office! It means I lose 20mins sleep (what I used to do on the tube) but gets me off to a start. And also gives the advantage that I can ‘think’ about my response before I sent it. I try to avoid replying to emails by phone as they always seem so short. A quick Google chat with my friend in Moscow – the only one online at that time due to the time difference! She has already been at work for three hours and so welcomes the distraction.


Boot up computer / drink coffee / reply to email / gather thoughts and class notes / drink more coffee (it’s a long day).  What have I left behind?
