The Week Ahead 020809

with one comment

The week ahead for February 8th, 2009.

At work, this is the last week of development in the current Scrum before we spend next week testing; we will release our latest application version on the 20th. Our versions are subnamed after cheeses and I don’t think I am giving away Company confidential information by saying that the next version is named Oaxaca. No, I didn’t choose it. The big big boss from England is coming over for reasons unspecified but it’s highly unlikely I will have any contact with him, and in these economic times I probably don’t want to.

Flying-wise I have two early morning bookings on the schedule this week in the hope that one of them will work out. Weather needs to be decent although shaking off some instrument flying cobwebs in the clouds also works. It is hard to get out of bed for flying at 7am though. If I make it I’ll hopefully have my first video from the cockpit on the new camera, so that should be exciting.

Of course I’ll be driving the MINI on it’s regular weekly 400 mile commute. This week I need to order some front brake pads and get someone to install them for me (yes I know it’s easy but I have no tools for it). Also this week we’ll be booking our trip to AMVIV. We want to do the Mount Charleston run but that’s going to require an extra night’s stay or an early start. I suppose we’ll decide that nearer the time.

Other than that I am planning to mess around with Drupal for content management on my websites but am also interested in Code Igniter. Maybe I’ll have something to show by the end of the week with that. Or maybe I’ll just sit watching CSI reruns instead.

Whatever your week has in store for you, I hope it’s a good one.
