Fired up an Archimedes emulator. Ah, the joys of * commands and Elite for the Archimedes. Such a cute OS.
eliot: weather in Australia
The weather in Australia is different depending where you go. For example, in Sydney at the moment, it’s a glorious spring day, the late afternoon sun shining on my front porch, warming the furry belly of my cat Meebles.
Check out Bureau of Meterology, or one of the more pleb friendly sites, like ninemsn.
Due to a horse race, it was impossible for me to organise several meetings or get people to go over stuff for tomorrow’s status meetings. I’ll have words to say about that at tomorrow’s meetings.
Wednesdays are looking more and more like “do nothing” days. I have a 1 hr meeting at 0900. Another 3 hr meeting at 0900. A 1hr status meeting in another part of Sydney at 1300. A 1.5 hr vendor presentation in Sydney city at 1430. And butting up hard against that, I need to be back in North Sydney for 1600 for our group’s status update meeting. In Debugging the Development Process, Steve Maguire states unequivocally that these sort of meetings are counterproductive, useless and should be eliminated or simply do not attend them. I cannot agree more. But I am a contractor, and I don’t have enough power to cancel these things. Oh well.
