    .... sun's out, prospects good for the weekend so what's everyone up to this afternoon ?

    Me, I'm head stuck in CCNA stuff, munching some yummy mint choc chip ice cream and waiting for the company I paid a fortune to last year to call back at 3.30 to redo my CV for me (well it was paid for already so why not ?!).

    What about everyone else ?

    Revision :( - CBT Nuggets and MS Press book... woo....

    Got my 70-272 booked in for Monday and I want to smash it into a million pieces so I've been going overboard with revision as of late.

    Oh, and beer. Beer is good. :)

    Its the last day of my weeks holiday, apart from the weekend, so I'm spending it working through an ASP.Net book, and then having some takeaway and a couple of drinks in the garden with the family.

    I have been on a track day at Donnington, it was a gift from a client who I built a couple of PCs for.

    I got to drive an Aston Martin DB9 which I almost crashed as I hit a puddle of oil whilst going around a corner. I managed to recover and avoid the woman coming behind me in a Nissan 350z.

    Then I drove an Lambo LP40 without any problems (was my favorite) a bit twitchy when pushed.

    Then I drove a Ferrari 430 which was a super nice drive.

    All I need now is to win the Euro lottery tonight so I can buy all 3 :D

    Think I've lost a couple of stone as it's been very hot and with driving cars like these then air con etc is switched off 8)

    Well i say Data centre more like 14 servers routing switches and the like. that of course doen't include the "new toys" for the VDI, blade servers and a stonking big SAN. I work at aprivate school near Peterborough.

    Jealous .....

    Although I did spend most of the day driving around in the sunshine in my MX5 with the roof down. Probably not quite as quickly as you though GBL.

    Is the Lambo L40 a new green version then GBL with 600 HP's removed? :)

    Last Friday I was in Tokyo, more specifically shopping at the AAFES Exchange at Yokota AFB. We took a mini-vacation for the Memorial Day weekend up there to catch some nice sales at the exchange and eat food we can't get here in Yokosuka like Burger King and Pizza Hut. I know boring stuff to most, but a vacation to us none the less.
