(There are swear words.... )
No need to blush at all. I am up shit creek as well so I know how you feel. F***ing nightmare actually. (This is like that e mail in some article of yours ... Yes, I read it.)
God it is so hard keeping up sometimes. I am on study leave soon and to be frank think it will remain just as bad. You did not sound bossy.
And yes, how do we do the blogs??
I am sitting feeling relieved for two mins though as I have just now averted a disaster. ....
I was sitting doing my effing e mails when my computer
made loads of beeps and crashed.
(Actually at first I thought the beeps were the smoke alarm. That is how alert I am.)
the screen went dead, the buzzy hum of the cooler thing (fan?) stopped. It was as if the slave's master stopped hitting him with whips and the slave looked up and said - 'but what do I do when the whipping stops??!'
After looking at leads and checking they were joined, all was still dead.
Got out the manual.
No luck there.
Checked leads again.
One was unplugged.
have not lost all work since 1966 after all.
Back to the whipping.
I now feel a bit ashamed as my study leave will cause my colleagues work and I am very grateful and will work hard and will enjoy it really. I am just a bit scared i won't manage it that's all. (Stress stress stess.)
