Good morning, Self.

Good morning, Self! Not the greatest nights’ sleep last night, as Jules woke at an ungodly 3:30am. Luckily (for me) Danielle took care of him ’til circa 7am, at which point we swapped and she crashed. An hour and a half (and breakfast) later, I put Jules to bed and rode into work – I can only hope he’s let her sleep in some!

Lots to do today! I need to send over configuration specs to a customer, write up an initial project plan/todo and pass that to all, get some more test data into our VMs, read up on Hadoop FS a little more.

Riding isn’t getting any easier. I wonder how much of it is my bike, and how much of it is me? I had the idea to ride the “loaner bike” home one evening, but Shannon’s just pointed out that it’s a fixey (single-speed). Perhaps Dyon will let me ride his road-bike, in the interest of science?

It’s 8am on the first day of the month, and despite the usual late night, I’ve been up for hours. Jules has been an early riser for years now, and it has had the effect of training me to wake up at 6am each morning — for no good reason, since he’s pretty independent in the morning these days — and so here I am.
