A day of two halves

I had originally planned to head on over to InfoSec at Olympia at about ten or a little after. Server problems -- not mine but someone else's -- ate a further hour of my morning (and lost me some money into the bargain, grumble) and by the time I got on the train I was not the happiest of bunnies. My mood was darkened still further by bloody Silverlink cancelling the train I'd intended to catch from Clapham Junction to Olympia -- given the option of sitting on the coldest, draughtiest (and, given the combination of wind and rain, also fairly wet) platform in CJ or looking for other alternatives, I gave up and got a cab.

At least, by the time I'd wandered round Infosec, said hi to a few people, grabbed a fairly good selection of freebies and won half a bottle of champagne at blackjack (one of the stalls had a table set up...), I was a bit cheerier. I didn't get rained on on the way home, didn't have to wait too long at Clapham Junction for my onward train, and the world appeared not to have ended in my absence. Phew...

  • Gah -- "friends" page styles

    Anyone know how to turn off LJ's new "feed" style friends pages? Do not want. I find my existing 25-entries-per-page to be much more manageable.

    Merry winter-festival-of-your-choice, all of you!

  • Gissa job...

    No, no, not me, but a friend of mine is losing his retail job this coming Monday when the place where he works closes down. (Nice timing...) Anyone…
