Well I've been working for an old boss for about six weeks now. He set up his own Dynamics CRM consultancy business. It's only about five months old and there's just him, me and a developer guy in Bangladesh, so it's all a bit of a risk joining up, as I need to help bring in new business and also re-train myself on CRM so I do the tech support for it, but it came at a good time for me as it meant I didn't have to go out doing interviews. Plus I get to work from home as well for the most part.

Worse case scenario, it comes to nothing and I have to go job hunting again, but with a bit of luck, it'll work out. :)

A few friends came round last night to play some games and eat some pizza. We dug out my old PSone memory cards looking for a Tekken 2 save file andwWhile we were rooting through, I found my old Music compositions for the game of the same name.

It turns out that I’m quite the budding DJ!

I also had tons of time on my hands too as I actually made videos for some of the tunes.

I’m going to try and get them off the PSone somehow to upload to YouTube. I’ve got at least 3 watchers lined up that’ll love them I’m sure!

They're flying the rainbow flag in place of the county one over the castle bit at work today, which was a good surprise.

If you can get work to stump for flights on Singapore Airlines (which is generally the nicest way to fly out there), then sign up for Kris Flyer. There should be a Krisflyer Amex you can get out there which gives you a decent amount of airmiles too. The benefit of this is that Singapore Airlines can do your long haul to the UK as well as the local flights in SE Asia, so you're not splitting your air miles across different schemes. Used to be the case, anyway.

That's basically standard for a first offence of that type. So you're going to have to try to overhaul sentencing guidelines.

As always, see The Secret Barrister for details.

I'd rather that those that stab people aren't walking the streets.

We will pretty much exclusively be flying Singapore, so yay!

Might be worth looking at Star Alliance membership - Singapore are a member and it's one of the biggest clubs for miles.

Whilst he does give a fair bit of context at no point does he say or imply "that's pretty standard for stabbing someone for the first time".

If I 'mute' a group chat in whatsapp can the creator and members see that I'm ignoring it?
