6. Think you need to be a techie
You’ve heard me talk about crash-only programming, right? It’s a programming paradigm for critical infrastructure systems, where there is — by design — no graceful way to shut down. A program can only crash and try to recover from a crashed state, which might well be impossible. I came up with a term for the human version: beef-only thinking.
Spare a thought for your humble blogger – surrounded by techies and Scots, I blame myself you know. As for health, yep, OK for an old codger apparently, next decision blog, decision after that boat.

Imagine what they’re going to replace him with …
3. Health and Death [via Chuckles]
Some have told me not to make light of death; my view is that of Kipling on Triumph and Disaster:

Hours, days, years of pleasure. Any takers?
1. Lampshade time
Weird nine hour sleep, can’t recall last time [Years? No wisecracks]. Slept right through till Wednesday dawn. This is the great advantage of this format, it’s like opening a live blog container and can add to it as and when. Mighty handy – set up the post mechanics, go and do the morning reading, covfefe etc., come back and blog, reformat as one goes.
07:51 – still not dawn out there, so that puts the lie to me sleeping right through till it.
[No doubt there’ll be something from the boys further up]
