Well, that was fun. We just had our annual review of emergency procedures. What to do if the fire alarm goes off, a safe and secure alert, or emergency weather. We actually practiced the weather drill, going into designated shelter areas.

As soon as that ended, the students were all told to start the self-paced Chromebook tutorial. That means 2,500+ computers suddenly hitting the network all at once. So I tried the test again. This time I got 94.73 down and 81.16 up. And now a third test gets 94.87 and 95.96.

That server at MK isn't exactly fast.

Better use the Peterborough Cambridge Meridian Acadamies server to test with. It'll come close to my actual speeds.

Just as a reminder, they are:


Fun ones to test are those at Paolo Alto in California.

As for my Mom, things are looking up. Tonight she'll get the last bit of antibiotics, then tomorrow they'll test whether the bacterium is still there. If not, or in low enough values then she's fired from the hospital, directly into a revalidation centre where she'll have to learn to walk normally again. Or more normal than she does so far.

And perhaps that at the end of that we'll get good news about the nursing home. Although I may no longer want her to go there, because of the costs.

I just heard something that I have to look into, as I didn't like what it was. To be continued on that.

Anyway, just home from the hospital, going to make dinner. Behave all.
And thanks all for the best wishes. It's appreciated.

Definitely hasn't been here in ages with that broom of his. What's he doing with it, sitting on it?

I'll probably have to force him to choose, next...

Red or blue?

Nope, they iz safe Mark :-)

As a responsible employee, it's all these unpaid IOU's in the corner of the bar area that I need to bring to the attention of the management. Free beer this place ain't!

I think I am all paid up.
Just a tall OJ for me, I have to go to work in a couple of hours.
And, please, another round of kibble treats for the kitties.

Sunday night on PBS, I saw "Sherlock: The Reichenback Fall." Just now, I had a thought about Benedict's portrayal.

He plays Sherlock as very intelligent, but with little or no regard for human nature and the social niceties. I don't think this is in keeping with the way Doyle wrote him. Holmes was very aware of human nature, since it often figured into the solution to the crime. He was also very much the gentleman to almost everyone, excepting only (and only sometimes) Watson, Lestrade, and Mrs Hudson. Sherlock may be a more psychologically realistic persona, but I think his lack of social awareness should also be a bit of a handicap for him in his profession.

Einstein is down, too!!!

If this is for them to update to the dreaded Drupal, expect a walk-out on the forums when they return. It's not beautiful stuff.

@all,
My Mom is doing all right, I guess. She's getting to terms with the information that she has to stay in the revalidation/rehabilitation (what do you English call it?) for ... 6 months! At least. Perhaps even longer.

If you think that the load on me has halved or more since she got there, forget it. It's even tripled. I'm completely exhausted and still have loads to do. So much to arrange, so much to move from her house to her room, so many changes. Eventually the load will get less, I know that, but not for the next 2 weeks.

So, if you don't see me as much, it's because I'm probably sleeping. I was the past hour and a half. :-)

Einstein is back up. It was kind of exciting having a double outrage.

Well, gotta run off to work now.
Looks like the kitties are enjoying a comfortable snooze in the corner.
When they wake up, tell them Dad said to trundle off back home, won't you?

Meow.
