I am in this odd phase of a holiday all booked which is in only 9 days, 18 hours, 0 minutes, and 26 seconds away. Oh, do I have a countdown app on my phone? Maybe... I'm sort of putting off work I should do until after the holiday now.
Got a message from one of my cohorts today...
"Cagney's" is one of the restaurants on the ship. It seems I am not the only one "winding down".
If I was a normal employee, this would be a couple of weeks of very low productivity for my employer. The irony is that I will get work done whilst on holiday too.
I also have a list of things still to pack, and keep adding to it - latest being my hat, which will be needed assuming it is sunny. I even listed passport, just in case I am so tied up being careful to pack what is on the list and I forget some of the basics. Yes insulin and needles are on the list too!
Is there a word for "fear of forgetting something". I bet there is.
Even so, I expect to do the new FireBrick release before I go. The latest alpha has been tested a lot and very stable, and the last bits are just about ready. Lots of work on the true random number generator in the FB2900, and the entropy from other sources for key generation. It has taken a bit longer than expected but it is important to get it all right. The ACME stuff is very cool and easy to use now.
