Quality Software

The image is a screen print of the properties dialog box of a workflow process in Adobe LiveCycle ES Workbench. It's good to know that they are looking after my welfare by making sure that I can't accidentally save my property changes by pressing "OK". Unfortunately, I also can't deliberately save my property changes either.

Just in case you are wondering, if the process was open in an editor, the OK button would still be missing which is unfortunate because the dialog box is modal so I have to cancel it in order to save the process in the editor.

Saint Totteringham's day

What, you may ask, is Saint Totteringham's Day? Well, Saint Totteringham's Day is the day on which Tottenham Hotspur can no longer catch Arsenal in the league, which is to say the day on which the total points available to Spurs is lower than the number of points Arsenal already have. It's entirely possible that the day doesn't happen in a particular year, if, for example Spurs actually finish higher than Arsenal (mercifully rare, last time was 94/95), or if Spurs are in the wrong league (77/78).

So, this year I am tracking progress towards St Totteringham's Day. As can be seen from the graph, the current projection is in the middle of March. This is probably tempting fate quite badly, so expect to see a massive improvement in the fortunes of Spurs and a disastrous run for Arsenal. However, it also provides me with something to blog about on a regular basis.

Note that the projection currently shows Arsenal with less than 70 points at the end, which would be very bad, and Spurs with about 30, which is well into relegation territory.

A Little Bit of Politics

Alex Salmond, Scottish First Minister is claiming that the UK should make more money available to Scotland. For all I know, he is right. Perhaps the UK should release the money to stave off recession in Scotland. But Alex Salmond is also the leader of the Scottish Nationalist Party and he wants independence for Scotland. Well Alex, independence includes independence from UK financial subsidies. I think the best thing you can do is f*** right off.

It looks like In Our Time has moved away from Radio 4.

How cool is this!

Naturally, I'm downloading it as we speak. I'll post some screenshots when I have it working.
