I have been tremendously busy re-arranging a bit of furniture and trying to get my 'pooters set-up (Physically arranged) in a more logical and convenient manner. I've also been trying to figure out why my FTP site wasn't letting others logon, but that one has finally been cracked.
Silly as I am, I'd forgotten that standard users can't logon to Active Directory domain controllers. D'oh. A few security policy changes later, and all is sweet. I now have to check the security settings to check that the people with ftp access doesn't have acces to stuff they shouldn't see\delete...
Last weekend was quite fun with much drinking and general carousing. Thursday it was my former boss' leaving do, and a bunch of us went to bewildering array of trendy bars which was surprsingly good fun. It must have been considering that a colleague had to remind me of where we went towards the end as the memory had kinda faded away. Work the next day wasn't quite so much fun though :)
Friday I went to see a friend who had come up from Brighton or Bristol (I can never remember which is which) and surprisingly a hefty alcohol intake commenced. Again, jolly good fun was had at The Brewery and The Warehouse.
Saturday was spent first at The Swan Inn playing cards with felch_02 and various assorted people of dubious character. Amusingly I was taught two new card games and proceeded to totally own the people who had played it for ages. Always remember: Age and treachery will always triumph over youth and ability :)
Afterwards we went to The Krazyhouse as felch_02 and sistercarrion were participating in a DJ Competition. scioptic, sterroneous, jasedenton and possibly others I cant remember showed up.
It was fun for a while, but KH is an inherently annoying place so I left after a few hours to meet the friend who's up from the south.Eventually I found myself at one of her friends' places and fell asleep.
Sunday I got home, rested and went to the Southport fireworks show with a number of people which included the kuchisake_onna and pjwitch. Good fun, but christ trying to herd people is difficult...
