In this posting here: http://www.f-secure.com/weblog/archives/00001506.html there was a confusing message, it says not to post the address "firstname.lastname@example.org" anywhere… can’t think why… woops.
I would like to publically thank (as much as I can here) the company "Learning with Linden ".
They have sorted me out with the brackets for a projection screen that was delivered in a poor state by the vendor. The vendor has been difficult to deal with on this problem, but looking over the delivered package I noticed a name on it that included a model number. By googling that name I found "Learning with Linden" and from there I was able to find the product.
I was able to call them, explain my situation and after they verified I had purchased the product they said they would send me the brackets tonight in the post! Wonderful, well, I will see and perhaps update you.
To update you, it went up, it doesn’t look great, but then again you get what you pay for in life, and it didn’t cost much.
Looking at the news that NASA may support the UK plans to launch a Moon orbiter I couldn't help but chuckle at a comment made by Alan Smith of the Mullard Space Sciences Laboratory:
"We've got to get our ducks in order, but I think the plan ticks all the right boxes and it's extremely likely that we will have the first British mission to the moon launched in 2012,"
Should someone from Mullard use the phrase "Ducks in a row"? Mullard? Mallard? Oh dear.
Over the years I have travelled a fair bit, more than my fair share and I have no intention of stopping now I have started. Luckly my work keeps me on the move and I should average about once a month out of the UK. I have also made a habbit of socialising internationally from college to present day. I have played with many languages over the years: French, Japanese, Spanish, German, Polish, Swedish, Norwegian and now Greek, none very successfully however but I tried for love and money.
Combining these two elements I have drawn some conclusions about different countries approaches to language…
So I continue on with social networking, it's something I have taken to much better than blogging if I confess. But I am prolific, I have a linked-in account, a Facebook account and an Xing account (the latter of which is rather stagnant at the moment). But I begin to realise that my business is now more and more about conglomerations of business contacts than it is about the company I work for.
Today I was asked about how someone would setup a particular broadcast network, then another time I am asked about if I could help someone with some other activity, then someone who would have been considered an arch-rival in business until recently calls and asks if we can provide them our technology (of course, at a price). It is all just contacts and clouds of people working together to achieve someone's goals.
But the networking is not just virtual, some of these deals happened on-line, others were the result of meeting someone at an event, but it's all just networking. Someone sees the potential in you and despite the traditional barriers they ask "for the good of my business I can work with this person".
