Lost…

Well it’s taken nearly 5 years, but I’ve finally gone and done it… I’ve lost my car key! I have a II with one of those credit card keys and sometime in the last few days it has dropped out of my pocket. I may have put it down somewhere, but I’ll be jiggered if I know where.
Now, it wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t for the fact that the spare key is in the car… yes yes, you can stop laughing now… the reason the spare is in the care is quite straight forward and stems back to when I first got the car and the initial unreliability of the keys.
The card has a special hidden emergency key built in, which looks pretty much like a normal key and there is a place on the car that you can use it to unlock the doors. Well early on I had a few problems with a number of the keys losing power and thus not working (design fault I believe), however with the emergency key you could always get in the car and thus with the spare key I could drive my car to the garage to get it fixed!
The keys have since become pretty robust but my habbits haven’t changed. I was only thinking the other day that I should remove the spare from the car and put it back in the house.
So now, the only way to get into the car is for a special emergency key to be cut for me by Renault in France and that takes 5-10 days. Then I can get in the car, get the spare, drive to the garage and have the car reprogrammed for new keys. All at the cost of £150! Not to mention 10 days without my car…

Art Attack

Rebekah - Art AttackRebekah went to bed last night and obviously couldn’t sleep… it’s an afliction she seems to get from me, we are both night owls. Anyway, we heard her moving around in her room for a while, so she was obviously up to something. When we went in to check on her later in the night we were greated by this…

Now, just in case the picture doesn’t do it justice, it’s two people lying under a parasol at the beach. You can see the beach and the sea with some sea creatures, the sun in the top corner, and she has arranged the clothing accordingly to create the people.

Without You

Without You

It’s nearly 1am
as I drink salted frozen margaritas
in the bar
on the 39th floor
of the Fourth Street Marriott
in San Francisco
I search the live cityscape
for the Bay Area stars
lost in the sparkle of lights
through thousands of windows
And although I know that
the morning plane
will bring me thousands of miles back home
I can’t help thinking that
this beautiful moment
Means nothing
without you.

Looking for work…

Well as of today, I am officially looking for work. I’m not unemployed per se, but I need to supplement with some contracting work. I’m really after very short term work that I can do from home, or longer term work that I can do at home with hours that suite me ( not asking for much I know! ). Ideally placed for development of databases and Word or Excel apps. Also ideally placed for tools for Game Development – I’ve done a bit of that! 🙂 I can also write technical manuals, specifications… Hell – I can do pretty much anything!

Anyone stumbling across this post who doesn’t know me, I am a more than capable programmer who has been in IT Dev for almost 20 years – shudder! Contact me for more info.

Anyway, I’m hitting the agencies today… watch this space…
