So it turns out WordPress converts html code to characters. Guess the joke in my last post didn’t work. Oh well, live and learn.
We returned from our holiday a week or two ago and have since got back to work. As I half expected I didn’t get time to write or learn while we were overseas, I had far more important things to do. It was a holiday after all!
On the work front things are changing. My position has been moved from the Service Desk to the “Administration” team within the service centre, basically meaning I am one of the primary administrators of our ITSM tool. It has been pretty interesting in the day or two where I have actually been able to “administer” the system, but the transition project is at a point where we can’t do too much to the system, so I am helping out some other areas currently.
While I was away I had an idea for an app reinforced, but I am struggling to find time to learn how I would be able to go about starting to create it. By the time I get home from work I’m basically spent, and on the weekends I will spend them with my Patrice or relaxing. I’m considering trying to save time at work and take a whole week off, and use that week for productive things, but I know if I did that I wouldn’t actually get anything done. It’s a tough circle.
Once again I’m going to say how I would like to keep the blog more updated. I’m really hoping that getting a laptop I can take to and from work will help out with that, and, well, I am writing now aren’t I? Maybe I’ll make a habit of it. Fingers crossed!
For those of you who don’t recognise ridiculous unicode references in HTML, that stands for Less Than.
We leave in 44 hours or so, and it’s very exciting. We have got some Euros and some GB Pounds (as we discovered there are other types of pounds, such as Gibraltar Pounds), and have pretty much packed our bags. The animals have been around a fair bit and they have been very sooky, almost like they know what’s going on. We are definitely going to miss them.
Now all that’s left is to actually go.
I am posting again on my blog. It has been a long time and reading some of my old stuff made me cringe. It is funny, however, that at the end of the second-last post about OSX I mention not getting a new laptop, and that’s exactly what I have done. Oh well. (Thank you Patrice <3)
Lots has changed since last update, most of which I don’t particularly want to write about. Coming up however (9 days, 23 hours, 33 minutes, 42..41.. seconds) Patrice and I are embarking on a trip to Europe, and I would like to chronicle some of that here, in everlasting digitalness. I can’t promise photos, or that anyone other than us will read it, but hey, blog maybe?
Work hasn’t changed much, but it may in the future. With my ServiceNow admin credentials I’m looking to transition away from the Service Desk to the Service Management Project / maintenance of the application / development of new modules perhaps, so that will be interesting.
That’s all for now.
