we released a new version of our software at my current contract site yesterday. it was a fairly chunky bit of work and the only time we could get to do the release was at 3pm during the week which is less than ideal but it seems to have gone rather well. past experience has taught me that everything that can go wrong during a release normally will but yesterday was the exception which proves the rule... i hope.

so with the golden jubilee long weekend coming up i can have a relaxing(ish) few days.

contrary to a lot of reports i think quite a lot of things will be happening to celebrate (it is a good excuse after all). i have got my brother and sister-in-law coming to stay and we are all heading to mum and dads for a jubilee party on monday which should be pretty good fun as long as the weather holds out.
