Life on the VPN

Alex returned from his European holiday with a bad cold. Last weekend it turned into bronchitis: given my susceptibility I decided to keep well-away.

Yesterday he was off-work and in-bed; today he worked from home (pictured). Like the slippers.

Turns out you can get a lot done without interruptions on the VPN, even when you're ill and you're forced to work in Groovy (a weird scripting language about 30% as efficient as using straight Java).

I was with a client this afternoon talking about security and focused on staying healthy.
