May the fourth be with you

Yes, it’s unofficial Jedi day. So it was up brightand early and off into Gloucester city centre to go and replace a PC on a retail site. The job went straight forward enough. Simply swap the guts of one PC in to another. Everything booted up ok, so the job was declared a success. With that out of the way the next job came in for a receipt printer causing merry hell on a retail site over at Usk. so after parts were sorted out for that I made my way over to the site and swapped over the printer. Again the job went as it should and worked fine. it goes to show that I’m approaching most of these jobs with the air of that they are going to mutate in to some thing more complex. So far so good.

I’ve already got jobs lines up for tomorow, but that’s another day. So time for an early night me thinks.

Gremlins in the till

Bank holiday Mondays. Why do they feel like another Sunday? No one in a hurry to get anywhere. Very few trucks on the road. It’s an odd way to start the working week. Only the one call to deal with. A retail site over at Caldicot. Over the last few months the site has been having an intermittent problem with the magnetic card reader. Various bits and pieces have been checked and replaced. So as the fault hasn’t gone away it’s time for the blunderbuss approach. Replace everything. So that’s what I did. The till, the screen and the magnetic card reader all swapped out. Fingers crossed that it works. Once that job was done and dusted, all that remained was to drop off the bits in Bristol and then head home. The only other job that came in was for a retail site in Gloucester city centre, but it’s not actionable until tomorrow morning. So that’s Tuesday taking shape all ready.

Just enjoying time off

After the Friday night Frag Fest I had every intention of going to bed. Unfortunately I stumbled over the TCM channel on TV and found “Army Of Darkness” playing. So much for an early night.

Saturday was filled with a long lie in and then some domestic stuff. All in all a chilled day.

As for today┬áI just couldn’t get going. I had some how found a comfortable position in bed and just didn’t want to get up. But eventually I did manage to haul my carcass out of bed. So the fish are now happy, now I finally changed the water and cleaned out their tank. So the remains of the day lay before me. And ten days of work lie ahead. Time to do very little and enjoy my time off.
