What is that?
It's a duck pond.
Why aren't there any ducks?
I don't know. There's never any ducks.
Then how do you know it's a duck pond?

The Salmon Mousse!

Or in my case, the Chicken with Cashew Nuts.

Bleargh.

'Scuse me.

It Never Shines But It... Something

It seems that I have broadband again. In stereo. I decided to get two ADSL connections at Pixy Central Mk II (via two different ISPs), because what with MuNu and everything, I'm online about 28 hours a day and just can't have outages.

Problem: I only have one working ADSL modem right now. Darn. I guess I'll just have to make do.

Too Tired To Blog

Good: Found the controller for my sound system.

Not so good: It was in bag number 15.

Not good at all: Fell down the stairs while carrying a box of books and landed on my head. Good thing I don't keep anything important in there...

Crapdoodles

You know that rat's nest of useless old cables you threw away because you didn't have the time to untangle and pack them? Recall that odd-looking black thingy caught up in the middle of it all? Well, that's the controller for your 4.1 channel speaker system. Yes, the good one, the one you carefully packed and moved all the other parts for, the one that won't work at all without that controller.

Where is it? Well, it's in a white plastic bag. Which is in a black plastic bag. Which is in the garage, along with 17 other identical black plastic bags. Which the nice men are going to take away tomorrow afternoon.

Oh. Oops.

That will make for a fun start to your day, won't it?

Now Blogging From An All-New Undisclosed Location

The move was a mitigated disaster (the movers did a very good job, but I wasn't ready in time), but at least it happened, and I am now up and running - ish - from Pixy Central Mk II.

I'll be busy for the next few days (now I have to go back to the old place to clean it...) but after that it's all MuNu all the time, excepting short breaks for my day job and sleep.

P.S. I'm still on dialup. Dialup, Pixy says, is slow, really slow. You won't believe how vastly, hugely, mindboggling slow it is. You may think it's slow when you've gone over your monthly download limit, but that's just peanuts to dialup.

P.P.S. Multi-purpose appliances are great until they break. If you have, just by way of an example, a combined washer/dryer, it's really good because you can put dirty clothes in, turn it on, and come back later to find them clean and dry. But if it breaks down, you end up hand-washing everything and then hanging it up to dry in the bathroom.

I Aten't Dead

Can't be. Still twitching.

The ironic ambience will return from an all new undisclosed location next week. Until then, why not try one of these fine blogs:

Eek

Just got the written quote from the removals company.

Bloody hell.

Uh, can I change my mind now?

Update: My boss is friends with some guys who do removals - they moved our office - and they can do it much much cheaper, probably about one third what I was quoted.
