Home > Uncle Biek > Foggy


The weather forecast for today in one word: foggy. It started out this way when I left for work this morning and when I walked back to the car at around four the sky was still grayish. During the day the sun was able to penetrate the clouds only a few times so for me it was a perfect day for work. :-)

Only one day left and then it’s time for the weekend again and I’m really up for that after this week. It’s no fun when we have mail servers going down by the bunch day after day, leaving us no options but to tell the customers that – yes – we know and – no – we can’t do anything about it but wait until they are back up again.

Our mail environment was rather stable for a reasonably long time but something like this week and the one before is worse than anything I’ve ever had the fun being in the middle of. *grin* Oh well, we’ll live, and I’ll cope.

It’s just that I’m sensing that a lot of the customers are beginning to loose their patience a bit (a lot actually, and quit frankly: who can blame them) with the whole situation. And that is very bad news since we’re going to have a huge migration on our hands (from our mail system ironically enough) by the first quarter of two thousand and eight. Trust me on this, we’ll need all the patience we can get from our customers, and this isn’t helping. At all.

    My day was nice and easy so far. Did a bit of repairs in the shop this morning and was doing some reading online the rest of the afternoon. I’m not sure what I’ll be eating yet, probably some pasta based dish. :-)

    Hopefully you’re not still working now, you should have a few nice evenings before going on a trip again. And I wouldn’t dare messing with your marriage, trust me. :-)

    Have a nice evening kiddo.

    iam leaving home now, but still some stuff to do after dinner :-)) have a nice evening too. you would not dare or you would not like? LOL

    Dare or like? I just wouldn’t, period. It’s just no fashion messing up other people’s marriage. If (and that’s a really big if) I knew you both a lot better and had the idea that you two are absolutely no match or if (another big one) I was under the impression that he was just no good, than I would have tried to talk you either out of it or at least had you thinking it over a few times.

    But since both big ‘if’s’ do not apply I’m in no position to be the judge on what’s right or wrong so I trust your own judgment on things and just stick to wishing you both a happy honeymoon and nothing but good things for the future.
