Nag, nag, nag…

Even Bu’er is nagging me to update (does this mean she’s blogged recently?)

Been a great week – Monday in the office, Tuesday & Wednesday testing down in (not so) sunny Bournemouth – this was the first time in all the years I’ve been going down there to test at FR Aviation that it’s not been beautiful weather. Shame really, I’ve just had some modifications done to the test rig and wanted some nice pictures for the new website (which will be going live in the next week or so to replace our static html site).

I’m still getting the ‘Error 500 – Internal Server Error’ thing here, so even adding a post is a pain in the arse – can’t add post tags, do any kind of formatting to the text (unless I add the html tags myself), adding images sometimes works…lemme try and add a pic of the rig:

Pffft…had to add it manually 😐 but you can see the amendments: the cradle to hold the load cell (saves having to lug that onto the jack EVERY time – at 20kg, it gets old very quickly), the pins either side to make height adjustment simple…I’m very pleased with it πŸ™‚ it’ll get a full test when I go up to Prestwick to test all of their B737 jacks in the next couple of weeks.

Best get on with some real work now – ciao.

EDIT: Woohoo! got rid of the error – WordPress wanted to update but said I was using PHP4.4.9 and it required PHP5 – logged into my control panel, changed the global PHP to 5, successfully updated WordPress automatically and everything is good again πŸ™‚ I’m one happy bunny…

Busy, busy, busy…

Since we got back to work after the break, it’s been non-stop with testing here and there.

Halfway through the month and I’ve still to go to Prestwick (that’ll be next Thursday), then off to Skavsta (Sweden) the following week. After those 2, I should have a bit of a break (by break, I mean be office bound for a month or so).

Just had an email regarding the schedule:

Drive to Prestwick?! OMG – 800 miles round trip with a shitload of work in between? um, I think I’ll fly thanks πŸ˜‰

Last time I was in Skavsta, it was July and the weather was beautiful. This time it’s the beginning of February and it’ll be COLD, so I might need to take a jacket πŸ˜› For Prestwick – well, it’s so mind numbingly boring up there, I’ll need valium or something 😐

EDIT: Just got my flight details through for Prestwick – I even get an overnight out of it πŸ™‚ (woo, great…nothing wrong with Scotland except for the fucking Scots – 1 in particular…). On a bright note, I’ll finally get to try haggis.
