Time flies like the wind.
Fruit flies like bananas.

How old am I?

I once built an astable multivibrator (using, as I recall, a pair of BC108s). My brother's comment when I showed him the bulb flashing on and off was, 'how old are you?'

So, I have now for the first time in my life redirected the error to null:

$ find . 2>/dev/null -name "" -print

Blimey. How old am I? :-)

public void MyUIMethodCalledFromWorkerThread(string message)
someControl.Text = message;

A new command: scdelete
This deleted a Windows Service and also cleans up its entry in Services plugin.
Huzzah! (My thanks to Jake Palmer for this useful hint)

2 Months In London

Rhymes with 'Last Train To London'

If only you knew.

Whilst we're on the subject didja hear Poor Edwards died. Death by bale. Harsh.

London, don't'cha know, is... Londonish.

Am 2 months into a 6 monther with a well known north american investment bank. Is v boring, just lots of Sybase scripts and back office extracts. Ooooh Matron.
