Gnarly weekend in a lot of ways. The week ahead should be plain sailing by comparison. Back to coding tomorrow night I hope.
Now have Zimbra running on a VM at home as the production MX for three domains. Hope my ADSL doesn't die.
Spent the weekend wrestling with Zimbra and various flavours of DNS. Now all tamed and running smoothly. I am the master of my domains.

Listening to it again, making a tTotal of 5:36 of sheer perfection.
Listening to Ace of Spades. 2:48 of sheer perfection. One of the mandatory full volume songs - good job the house is empty.
Tweetdeck 0.32.6 isn't remembering my accounts. Groundhog Day every time I open it. Seesmic Desktop here I come.

How do I get a table of integers from a MySQL query to a web page and format them as currency? Nested loops? Really?
is writing nested loops. In 2010. For some reason.
My rule-of-thumb: if I'm writing nested loops I'm doing something wrong. There's got to be a better way.

Graeme Smith kneed in the head. At last.
The short stature, the guileless face, the air of not being comfortable at the highest level: Ian Bell is the Sammy Lee of cricket
Current run rate 1.98. Required rate 5.5. Colly & Belly FTD!
Hostile spell from Steyn & Morkel. Time to man up.

Today we find out if Ian Bell is man or boy.
