I only just noticed that you're in South Wales. I was born in Bridgend, although I was only there for a few months...
You're welcome Orpheous, before getting the tonic water I'd drink salt water to ease them especially if it was the middle of the night and I didn't have a banana, which are also good for cramps.

You don't really know much about the area then if you were only around for a few months

Windows 7 x 32 bit

Today I logged on to sevens forum for the first time in ages...

How is everyone??

I have been away on holidays and loving it. Back to reality now.

Still don't have my computer but at least they have admitted there IS a problem.

"the problem appears to be associated with the graphics card. We are uncertain at this stage if it is because of software or hardware"

well, duuuuhhhh! I told you that a MONTH ago. LOL.


So how is everyone?? Miss me?

This morning I had a very unpleasant meeting with accountant. One of our biggest customers has filed for a bankruptcy Friday last week. At the moment it's not clear how much we are going to lose, but it's going to be a lot.

This is especially bad because of the business model we have. We are quite a small company making quite a big turnover by getting jobs basically too big to us and then buying resources to do the job from other companies. This means over two thirds of our turnover goes to pay other companies for doing our job.

It means we already paid a lot for another company to help us with this customer, and we have to pay for that. But the customer has not paid a cent since Q3/2009 and today we learned the guarantees we had from their bank are worthless.

Sorry, I'm just so pissed off I opened my office bottle an hour ago and am already over the legal limit, and don't want to go home to show my wife how the husband is drunk already before midday (it's 11:45AM here). So I'm just sitting in my office, door locked from inside, drinking and surfing.

Oh God how I hate Mondays!

Oh crap Kari. That's not good news at all! Any chance you will get SOME money back through the insolvency process? I hope your business can survive this crippling blow.

We'll survive, that's not an issue. It's just that we lose so much.

I might have to fire one person. I have nothing against firing people when somebody really doesn't fit in to our group, or does not the work as expected, but it's not nice when the only reason is that we've lost a customer. Everybody we have now are hard working, nice guys and gals. It's going to be hard to decide who has to go.

Sorry about this drunken rant.

NinaJay, yes, we missed you.
Belated Happy New Year.
Hope you get your comp back soon.
Good to have a holiday, eh.

Kari, sorry to hear about your non-paying customer, causing issues at work.
Sure hope the loss will be less than expected.
Sadly, these type of things seem to happen on a regularity, all around the globe, unfortunately.

Today I think I'm going to decide if I'm going to take a road trip east or west so I can start planning my vacation for this year.
