300 days up and counting!

Oh yeah baby!


You have no idea how hard it is keeping the power on a machine that long, not when your wife unplugs cords to vacuum and trips breakers when ironing AND washing at the same time... When your UPS lasts only 3 minutes you get very well practiced in running to the power box and resetting breakers, regardless of how many spiders there are....

Now you're just trying to make us jealous...

I had the office downstairs rip out our triple phase on a sunday!You've never seen someone move faster accross London with a 20 meter extension cable....

At least I didn't have to contend with spiders ;o)
