At home today

At home for the second time this week. On Tuesday I worked from home on purpose, as things in the office were quiet and I needed to do some stuff on a side-project web site.

Today however, Isaac woke up with a whopping 39.5 temperature. This managed to coincide with the work computer system being very ill indeed (database refusing connections: “No. I’m not going to connect you. I don’t like you. Go away.”) Thanks to some medicine the temperature has gone down somewhat, and thanks to some DBA magic the database is being nice again, but I’m home for the day.

Thanks to the miracle of computer networks and modern telephony, I am able to do a large proportion of my work from home. Sometimes it’s a curse, sometimes it’s a blessing.
