Second Christmas Meal

Tonight is my second Christmas meal, the first was last night which was the Grocery meal, tonight is the Warehouse/GM meal.

The meal last night was alright, they give out big portions of meat! And then I piled on the vegetables! I only just managed to finish it!
Before that there was a starter, I chose the soup, and for after I had the Christmas pudding.

The soup was alright, vegetable I think! But the Christmas pudding was only a small square on a big plate, and the piece I had was rock hard, I couldn’t even cut it with a knife!

Tonight I’m having the same, but I chose a different pudding, apple pie with custard!

I’ve done a bit of Christmas shopping, I managed to get something for everyone! But I’ve not entirely finished yet!

I’ve now got 15 minutes to get ready for the Christmas meal!

Till next time,
Merry Christmas

Its December Already!

Its been two weeks since my last post, so whats been happening?

For a start I managed to get search working on Linux Links, so thats all well and good

I have also added a couple of other features to the site.

The first feature is being able to browse by hostname, unless two or more pages in the database come from the same host then there is no way to access it, and that’s deliberate!

The second feature is a status checker, which basically checks if the page can be accessed every day, and the results of that are displayed on the url page.

Its Sunday now, I started this post on Saturday but had to go out before finishing this post!

Now that it is December I’m working more hours at work. I am now working six days a week and have Mondays off.
That means that I’ve got Christmas eve and New Years eve off, so that’s a good thing!

It’s December which means that obviously I haven’t even started Christmas shopping yet!
And like usual I don’t have the foggiest what to get anyone!

Staying with the Christmas theme, one good point to working out in the warehouse is that I don’t get to listen to the endless Christmas songs repeated countless number of times throughout the day!
Also, I’ve got 2 Christmas meals to go to this year, the first on the eighth is the Grocery Christmas meal, and then on the ninth is the Warehouse and GM meal, at the same place!

Thats it for this week!
See you next time!

The past week

Friday was Children in Need, and the big waxing took place in ASDA.
Unfortunately I missed Scott getting his legs waxed, but I have been told he chickened out and only had one leg waxed!

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I had an email from Schmap saying that one of my photos had been nominated to be included in the forth edition of their Bristol guide.
I got an email from them Saturday saying that my photo was included.
You can view it here.

Now for more news about Linux Links, I was working all day Saturday to try and get search working, but it just wasn’t going right!

I was copying code from phpBB, and from a couple of tutorials from the Internet, I was even using the MySQL search functions, but none of them produced the results I was after.

I now feel sorry for the pigeons working at google!

Search is still not working, but I have a new plan to try, it involves splitting the search string, searching for each word separately!
I’ll keep you posted on how it goes!

Till next time
See you!

The night after the night before!

This is the first night/day after the last day of working nights

We finished working at 6am, and went to bed as soon as I got home. Woke up about 2pm, and I was feeling tired all day.
I was also feeling tired all evening, but for the past hour or two I’ve felt wide awake!

I’ve done a little bit of work on my website and blog, and have added a few touches to my Linux site, I’m now going to try and get some sleep tonight!

I’ll post again sometime this weekend!
Till then

Good night!

Getting ready for nights!

From Sunday I will be working from 9pm to 9am for the next four days. This is to help with the refit that is going on at the moment.

It is 5 o’clock in the morning and I’ve been up for and hour now! I’m going to be going back to sleep, if thats possible, at 4pm and then waking up again at 10pm so that I can then hopefully stay awake all night!

I will be taking this free time as a chance to update my website as I have a list of tweaks and fixes to do.
One of them is a subscription to this blog so that casual visitors and readers can receive emails when I finally write a new post!

I have already added the plugin, subscribe2, to wordpress, and now I’m just testing it out with this post!

I’ll post again tomorrow night.
Until then, stay awake!
