Had a truck driver screw us over by not answering his phone over the weekend. He shows up 4 hours earlier than we need him, waits around, then decides he's too tired to do the drive and that he totally didn't know a 7 hour transit each way job required a layover.

 

Panicked over that, eventually called another company at 3 o clock, had another driver lined up in an hour.

 

Every day is a crisis day at this job.

Obliged to take time off due to working long hours in preceeding weeks.

 

Evening session with boys, beer, brandy, whisky, port. Played Munchausen.

I wrote a 11,532 word business proposal for a current work project recommending we modify an existing design by replacing the planned 171 site layout with a 155 site layout by replacing the planned Andrews dipole antennas with Kathrien Planar antennas. The central argument being that the vertically polarized Kathriens have a 120 degree h-Plane beamwidth that allows a better coverage arc and a lower thermal expansion coefficient since the elements are enclosed in a fiberglass housing. This is of particular concern since the customer is located in Illinois. However the plan does save the customer the costs of constructing 16 sites but it means reworking the existing designs because the Kathriens use DIN connectors and the current sites are all using N type. So they would all have to be reworked and the Kathriens have more weight so there is static stress on the mounting structures and additional wind load reinforcements to consider but all of the additional costs are more than offset by the savings of constructing 16 fewer sites.

 

It's no better than even money it will be accepted since municipal projects are financed from multiple "buckets" so to speak and a net cost saving will not necessarily be embraced if it benefits one "bucket" more than another. Besides, in my experience governments seldom concern themselves with saving the taxpayers money. When the waste all the wool they just go shear the sheep again.

 

After wrestling with that beast I took my wife out to dinner and a NBA game.

:lol:  Nah. If they buy it they buy it. If they don't they don't. I'm just a consultant. My paycheck is the same either way.

Th neighbours will have heard the outraged bull like wail of an educated grown up watching the Dr Who episode.

 

What the name of the nine names of **** is going on with the writers? Can the BBC really not recruit someone who can be arsed to write episodes that actually fit together and have internal logic? It's not as if there aren't _literally_ millions of hard working authors out there, desperate for a chance. Hell, we've got two or three on these bloody forums who could do a better job than this drivel.

Fun client meeting today, just listening to them rage at their boss. Also have our big bosses in town, so that means some painfully forced socializing at a bar.

My advice is have a drink at the bar, its never to late to start drinking and I honestly think it will give you  a more positive outlook on life :p

I don't have one now? Alcohol is pricey and just resulted in my being thirsty. They seem to be alcoholics here though, several go drinking heavily often.

Get them to buy you drinks? That way you don't waste any money :geek:

Maybe you should avoid watching children's programs Wals.

Maybe that's why I completely lost interest in this show after the Peter Davidson era. I've tried watching it recently a few times but... meh
