the christmas wind-down has begun. we are just doing minor bug fixing and people have started to disperse off to their various destinations for the holidays.

i think at the last count there are 2 people in next monday, and then after that noone will be around until 2003!

from my point of view this hasn't come a day too soon. although it is going to cost me quite a bit not working, i really need the break as i haven't had any time off since june (and then that was a semi-work trip).

it's likely that tomorrow we'll go to the pub at lunch-time and not come back so roll on friday!
