    So what's everybody up to ?

    Me, well, done my job trawl thru' the ads already and later this morning I'm seeing a friend about designing some business cards for her photography work, then doing a functional CV for a speculative job via a contact and I might do a bit of studying this afternoon or just relax for a bit.

    What's everyone else up to ?

    Oh and set the seat up properly:biggrin

    Havent ridden a motorbike for over a year now. I would love to get another but its just not practical at the moment

    After a week of moving and installing 800 odd monitors and setting them up, taking it a bit easy today. Just programmed 12 or so new switches ready to install in the next few weeks for so.

    Getting used to our new leased line giving the school 100mb of internet power :D We'd maxed our 8mb line out ages ago.

    tonight, I shall grab a bit to eat when I get home and then drop the kids off to sea cadets and then pop over to play squash with the lads. Perhaps a beer after and home. Nice quiet weekend planned with some F1 viewing. Oh and squash again on Sunday.

    Today is also quiet here, so am doing some helpdesk calls that were tagged as non urgent, as well as pulling together some reports as our head office might be moving so we are starting to plan just in case.

    Tonight will be a quiet night before it gets busy on saturday as I am heading over to Sheffield to get some Vibram Five Fingers and if possible see an apple Genius about my iPhone, then across to Bradford for a double session of Gracie Combatives, then home and changed before heading out to a Burlesque evening that is being run by a friend.

    Sunday, will be some fitness stuff and watching the British leg of the Moto GP intermixed with some studying.

    Have you had a look at The Gracie Online University The lessons are very good and you can submit your grading videos from there.

    To be honest I bought all of the lessons from there as I can't always make it across to Bradford but I also use them to get it straight in my head before the session - really really well thought out ciriculum.
