Sunday 4th December, 2022

A very odd day characterised mainly by modern interweb woes. I had put the majority of Sunday aside to catch up on some school publishing. It didn’t get off to a good start when I was locked out of three sites.

I contacted the host. They confirmed some overnight DNS issues. I was told that these were now resolved.

I waited for the modern interweb to trickle down with all the caching nonsense. I pressed on writing a Buzz masterpiece for the morning instead.

A couple of hours later and I was still left knocking on the login door for the school sites.

Oh dear.

We’ve tried pretty much everything with the host. It’s a bit of a BALL ACHE tbh. In the end I settled to sleep on it. I’ve had too many modern interweb tech sessions running into the early hours. There is nothing that can’t wait until a fresh perspective in the morning.

Elsewhere and Sunday was pedestrian. The early December GLOOM felt like daylight didn’t ever begin.

The Rock ‘n’ Roll Routemaster was back with Robert Elms for the first time since pre-Covid. He had a brilliant potted history of music bootlegs.

Elms also played Michelle Shocked’s Anchorage – one of the top 10 singles of all time? I’m still trying to pick up a copy of the Short, Sharp album for a decent price on CD.

Football closed Sunday, plus some cricket planning for the summer months ahead. It looks like I’m going to be around for all of Surrey’s home Championship matches.

C’mon the ‘rrey!
