Today was hot. Very hot!!!!! I am very glad that I could work in shorts and slops otherwise I do believe I would not have made it through the day. Was at a client this morning working on a PC and the aircon in his office was not working….. That was not pleasant at all. Finally worked out that for some reason Corel Draw 12 does not like Windows 7 at all. So mercifully a short visit as the client now needs to upgrade his software to a version that Windows 7 does actually like.
Back to the office where I sat at my desk beneath the wonderful aircon unit and enjoyed the cool 16degree breeze . Have been trying to set up a WordPress site that can act as a technology news related blog for my site as well as be a project management and invoicing system from the backend.
Found some promising looking plugins which I have downloaded and will install and test in the next couple of days. I am very big on being able to run all aspects of my business online including staff management, client management, accounting and marketing.
Went out for dinner to the Cape Town Fish Market in Big Bay. It was one of the worst meals I have had in a long time. The food was terrible, the service was shocking. It took over an hour for them to prepare 2 Sushi Platters and they were by far the worst platters I have seen. The food was not good at all. Odd tasting and the consistency was just not good.
Also, the restaurant itself was like a sauna and when asked about the airconditioning we were told it was SUPPOSED to be fixed the day before but didn’t feel like it had been. There were loads of flies on the windows towards the ceiling and two or three large moths running rampant……. I would not recommend a visit to this particular restaurant at all.
The weather is still warm and its time for bed….
