89.8kg the only part of the week that went as expected.  Weight down.

The job hunt is slow there just are not that many jobs to be had in any area I am interested in and competent to do.

I took a swing at finding out more about one job and it worked - I may still apply  have applied (*) but they are wanting someone like a McKinsey or Boston Consulting consultant.  It is a tough ask.  Getting past the recruitment level personnel may be harder than winning at an interview.

No guitars tuned, sound (jackd) still not fully functional on Desktop.  Books unsorted.  Insurance & superannuation still not re-assessed.  DVDs to watch & books to read.  This is roughly the priority order.  The latter items are mostly under control but an analytic & technical review at the end of the financial year of money stuff is always a good idea.

But we have a new toaster and pillows.

  1. If you've a spare machine, Ubuntu Studio seems pretty nifty. I had it on a netbook, on a HDD that's now failed (and I haven't got around to fixing). But the idea is cool... Mic to jackd to icecast via bluetooth/phone.

    1. Main goal is to get guitar playing recorded so I can improve.
      I have a USB doobrie (Yamaha something) which takes guitar (6.5mm) & mic's as input and feeds into the sound system. Haven't actually connected this to jack yet. TV Card (or vlc etc) to Audacity via jackd works - but can't simultaeneously get the sound out thru my speakers or headphones. Probably something stupid.
