    I'm in work and thats about it really.
    I've eaten all my lunch, all my tictacs, drunk all my milkshake and all my Gansters are in hospital, so I have to wait 5 hours for them to heal before I can do any thing else with them.
    I'm off to look for more Android games.

    I like looking at houses and then viewing them.
    Almost as good as the day you move in.

    I've been looking at boats, houses, cars and motorbikes.
    Boats to live on, houses to live in, cars to sell and bikes to ride.

    Yes bud it looks mean. As soon as the actuator is sorted and the map, it'll be a beast.

    I've been looking at something different with my brake setup. Trying to do brembos on a budget :ninja:

    To be honest I dont remember them being that much different to mine but to be fair we didn't do any high speed braking.

    Talk to James at Redish-Motorsport.co.uk.
    I think he can get some. He builds BMW race cars.
    I'm not 100% sure what he can get but he all ways has loads of Toyos R888s at his place.

    Connected to a client over the net and moving a load of historical data for a client as the server it was on is failing.

    So flicking back between ASN and an RDP session into the new server (over a VPN tunnel).

    IT contracting?
    I contracted for the last 10 years on and off, no job security and I hated that part of it but the money was very good.
    I could never spend it fast enough at the time.

    I've offten thought about setting up my own business, had a couple of ideas and some oputunites (SP) but never liked the thought of having to deal with customers or the hassel that goes with setting up a business.
    I perfer getting up working, getting paid and going home again. Its simple and I like it. :)

    Wish I was doing bugger all sat behind my desk. Instead I'm rolling down the m40 on way toa job at Heathrow. Them it'll be back on the road pointing north. Looks like a long day ahead.
    Moral is low at our place between the techi lads. Boss thinks it's ok to pay top end installers who have been with the company over 10 yrs less than new trainees with local competitors Who are currently advertising. And I'm not talking a few hundred quid... I'm talking 7k! So the lads have finally had enough and the cracks are starting to show.

    Well if I could be arsed I could open the lid on my laptop and use it's internal screen as well.

    The current docking station has limited monitor outputs, but when I replace it (next couple of months) I will make sure I have one with a min of two DVI ports.

    IT is not as fun as it use to be.
    I find it boring as hell at the moment.
    Nothing ever happens any more and I'm dealing with old tech. :(

    My mate works for a law firm and they all ways play with the cool stuff.
    I'm stuck with with a company that has no money to upgrade or replace faulty kit and we are stuck with MS software from 2003. :(
