So, its been a mad few weeks...

I have:
  • moved 3 times in 9 weeks
  • helped my friend move
  • had two job interviews in a week
  • come back down to where i moved away from to do some more work on the Fine Particulate Screen control software
The moving was annoying, but more annoying was the necessity of having to move.... I don't like that i'm in this situation, and I'm getting sick of being rejected for jobs.

The friend move was actually kinda cool... i got to meet her parents again and one of her cousins, plus his other-half and their (gorgeous) baby... although I think I also screwed my back up a bit helping her dad get her sofa up the stairs and into her flat....

Of the interviews, one was last week and they got back to me today to say "no thanks" (no reason given, so i've emailed asking for feedback), and the other was today and I think it went really well... and i kinda really would like this job... its doing PHP devel and its quite a cool sounding thing that i'd be working on... so here's hoping it goes my way!

WRT the Fine Particulate Screen, there are a couple of annoying nigglybugs in there that need the whole 'search-and-destroy' thing doing, and then I want to try get the new version of the software into testing (after incorporating the s&d bugfixes)... the new version is much more production-system-oriented than the current version... it adds in things like attempting to restart the system after a power failure if the plant was running when the failure occurred and a "three-strikes-and-you're-out" fault/fail system whereby it needs three of the same fault to occur (that is, with a reset-resume inbetween) for the machine to be failed by the software, which should eliminate issues with transient conditions but should still ensure that the plant does fail if something is actually wrong with it.

Anyway, today's been a long and tiring day, but I thought I'd make the most of having the Internet available (its been a rare thing for a couple of months... I've been having withdrawal symptoms!) and post an update on LJ.

I'm gonna go chill for a bit now then get an early night!

Hi Jo! So I remembered to look you up on here after all the alcohol on Saturday, I'm quite impressed with myself! Anyway, just thought I'd say hi and I've added you if that's OK? Hope things improve for you on the job and front and if there is anything we (well Michael really as I have no idea about puter jobs!) can do to help give us a shout, we have quite a lot of friends working in IT round here if you want people to keep an eye out for you. Hopefully see you soon and we'll give you a shout about the Wendy House, Helen x

LOL my kick was pretty awesome I reckon, esp given I've never made such a thing before! Was a good party though, I don't think I really recovered until Tuesday...
