The day after...

...a meltdown at the summit when the server went down and broke everything: telescope, instruments, sanity, but unfortunately not the phone system as well.

Several people were called. This was 3 o'clock on a Sunday morning. Some of us are used to this though but it's never pleasant.

Today I planned to watch a bit of football (the American kind) but found myself at work instead. We're back in business again otherwise I wouldn't be writing this, but needed a bit of a distraction this evening because I was annoyed and frustrated. So I visited Borders on the way home and bought the 4th season of Boston Legal.

I'm a bit of a BBC fan as I love British television and (usually) hate American TV. Well, tonight I've laughed as I haven't done for a long time and actually cried as well, all within 30 minutes. I can't say enough good things about Boston Legal apart from it's the most intelligent and funny series I've seen in years. It's a shame season 5 will be its last and will buy that season the next time my weekend is destroyed - well, as soon as the series is finished and the DVD is available.

Hi Tom,

It is great to hear from you again. Would you mind if I linked to your site?

I would be honoured! I've only just started the blog as you can see. I did have a link to yours earlier but I'm still getting my act together here and turned a few things off, but will re-activate that as long as you don't mind.
