I'm glad that's over

We moved house in the latter part of January. I was looking forward to getting an office again. My last office was converted into a small child's bedroom after a prospective buyer of our old house was heard to mention "There's nothing but computers in there!". Abby was so happy with her hastily arranged new bedroom that I couldn't bring myself to kick her out again.

So for the first time in about 3 years, we have an office. It still looks like a bomb hit it, but I have been able to do some blogging. Now that the broadband is alive again. We changed phone and broadband providers with the house move. A week with no BT line. 40 days and 40 nights (literally) with no broadband. Thank you, as yet unnamed telco. It's amazing how inadequate dialup is. Especially when you've just had to hand back your shiny new Mac Book Pro to your old employers and need to set up a new computer.

I can sympathize with Warren Ellis.

This weekend I did manage to upload a new CruiseControl Best Practices post. I'm publishing on Build Doctor at least in the interim. I'm not sure what the deal is for ex-ThoughtWorkers posting on the ThoughtWorks studios blog. There's another in the pipeline, too. I also finished a couple of other new posts for build-doctor.com as well.
