Today's day...
Well, I recorded my journal throughout the day onto my calculator (yes, it has text. It's a programmable calculator, which has color, and menus and things. Us Maths geeks are obliged to carry them with us). Here are my reports:

Switched moisture oven on and fine tuned valve to 100ish
Read about the 8500 Permeation Instrument
Theorized about presence of Hydrogen in Nitrogen supply
Messed up the tuning
Retuned to 100ish
Read confusing and complex schematics
Read about thermocouples and their use in supercooling
Drew up plans for a new test process
Found odd dip in ambient temperature at 13:00 yesterday - odd...
Flow at 99.60 - as close as I'll get
Gerry asked what we actually do in Research and Development. I try to explain, and fail
Waiting for 1pm to arrive
6 minutes until lunch (plus 15 minute walk into to the town)
Ate lots. Now helping with MS Excel.
Suddenly realised how lonely my life is
Decided to ignore my life in favour of the moisture levels in the XDT/D. Bet even that gets lonely sometimes.
Spoke to Bryan about test ideas - he says we should get a bit of kit costing a grand to knock H2O levels down to PPB
Spending 5 minutes doing things, followed by 25 minutes of waiting for accurate results
I was right about the hydrogen, and the expensive tests. Considered a car over PC. Then realised how silly that is...

Well anyway, that's my day, as it happened. More later :o)

The DoE aren't as ineffective as I thought.
That's worth my vote in the next GE alone.

Shame lunatics can't vote then... :o)

Re: You have a job ?

It is, isn't it ?

I have to dictate this stuff to my nurse, y'know.

/goes back to Renfield activities...
