Had a good time watching Eurovision on Saturday evening although there was nothing really weird this year and I didn’t much like the winner… but good to see old favourite Ruslana in action in the interval! (shiri na na etc.etc.)
A quiet day yesterday recovering (!) and I’m making progress with my book too. A giant spreadsheet is coming in handy. Colour-coding may be involved 🙂 I now have quite a good idea of who did it and why, and am working on alternative theories and red herrings. It’s amazing how three hours can whiz by when I get into it.
I hope our IT is working today. We weren’t affected on Friday, but about four hours after the thing happened, our IT dept got round to letting everyone know and shut down external emails as a precaution. Hopefully that means fewer emails today! To be honest, anyone I know at work could have told you our IT is hopelessly outdated (the default web browser on our computers is Internet Explorer 7, which brings up error messages from most websites, so we’ve had to illicitly use an administrator’s password in order to put Chrome on them) and the hospital management is more interested in exciting gee-whizz projects like visiting the US on a “fact-finding mission” to look at electronic patient records or my boss’s current favourite, hanging out with household name software companies to talk about artificial intelligence, rather than the day-to-day stuff of keeping the network secure. Such is life! Once we’ve handed the keys over to the robots and this happens, we’re all screwed aren’t we? No wonder all the tech billionaires are buying hideaways in New Zealand for when the apocalypse comes…
So, on that cheery note, let the working week begin! I have a wine tasting and a (separate) wine dinner this evening which is the worst timing ever as it’s our big quarterly meeting tomorrow. Argh!
