# I'm taking this opportunity to say
that not only have i follishly called into work drunk after hours to get my bag... but...

I've gotten into the complex housing the entire Irish national grid not by showing security my legitimate ID, but instead by pushing an ignored buzzwer and asking for access.

After 2 minutes of failed access, i had to jump in the open gate with some young (18-20) yr old girls came along, and named apartments in the complex into the speaker. Apparently knowing government or board officials can get you free accomodation in luxury appartments in the same complex as the same fucking control over the entire national grid.

security after madrid? No thanks. But can my drunken upstart daughter bring her friends back because I'm on the board and get 200thousand euro off the taxpayer a year?

sure - no problem.

# Yay!
I was so tempted to make one of those, but instead I've been fiddling with IrfanView extracting frames from Tool videos. Not quite as thrilling, admittedly, but equally productive. Now I think I should start to think about getting ready to go out. Hmph.

# Lahv'ly
TJ: You may recall a while back, some bint from the BBC posted an invitation for us to be on a discussion about the BBC's place in a post-copyright, digital-revolutionised world.
Well it's on tomorrow night by the looks of it: Panorama

I love Panorama.

# I know what you're on about
But I have to disagree, the interview for that program are from 8th-12th of march so they couldn't have been done yet. I was going to go you see, but since it would cost me £48 to get there I decided against it.
Edit: Unless of course they decided to do away with the asking our opinions bit, then you might be correct.
