An interesting day I feel, with several interesting ups and downs, so several cuts to avoid spamming people.
The noble and forthright process known only as xwrits passed away sadly sometime between Friday night and Monday morning. Xwrits lived in a large Unix box in the in* region of the town of .lancs.ac.uk. It is succeeded by no child processes and died before its one grieving parent process and several grand-parent processes. Neighbours in the process table were said to be bemused, having not noticed the passing away of such a useful member of their community.
Xwrits was known for its sterling work as a reminder for users of the system to take a break, its work will be continued by a relation (PID 18724).
Well as you can tell my RSI break reminder program karked it at some point over the weekend. Sadly I was in the office all afternoon feverishly hacking code on Monday and didn’t notice until I was just about to go home (after a straight 4 hour typing spree) that I’d not actually taken a single break. It does show however that my arms are doing much better than they were at the start of Winter.
In other news I spent the weekend running hither and thither in all sorts of fun activities, a fine LAN party where much shooting occured (after a suitable amount of beating of my system, damn you XP Home) then on Sunday a pub-lunch, game of Go with Dodge (hes getting better) and some roleplaying in the evening, much fun.

Well another quite enjoyable, if long day, I thought I’d chop the stuff behind two cuts to try and save peoples Friend’s pages from being swamped by ramble, largely its broken into two sections, first a technical ramble about work (and Perl) then a non-technical ramble about posture mainly.
