Work is fatally quiet. Free lunch off the boss at the local Wagamama, which is enough to make any day a good day. Having trouble getting a decent chair out of them, though - some ruckus will have to be raised, I fear. (Though, of course, I would never imply that a certain purchasing person will be discovering what it's like to be wearing the red shirt in the BOFH stories. That would be terribly unprofessional. Probably.)
Prospective new PC: 150 quid for a Compaq Deskpro PIII-866, 128MB memory, Ethernet, 17" monitor. (Ex-work, and in fact the same thing I am writing this on.) Does this sound like a deal? I have no idea of UK going rates on last year's model.
