I treated myself to a laptop, which arrived between Christmas and New Year. I have wireless internet at home and am typing this from the lounge. Technology can be great at times! I’ve not bothered with a laptop for many years now. The first one I had cost £1,800 and that was probably 8-9 years ago. This one I’m typing on – a Dell – cost £600. The main reason for treating myself is a new project I’m likely to be starting in the next 3 months. This will require a great deal of computer work but not much brain power. So I’m hoping that I can watch TV and work at the same time.

We’re going to roll out a few tweaks on the TRIP Database, nothing major, just a few issues that have arisen since the last major upgrade. With the new project not likely to go live till mid-2008 I doubt we’ll see any significant developments to the main TRIP. Although the specialist search engines are likely to see some activity.

An even more pointless blog than normal. I just wanted to post something using the new technology!
