Week ends

This week has become noticeably busier. I've gone from 3 to 12 phone calls a day during the week, and lots of emails are coming in. Another academic year rises out of the primordial ooze, and off we go.

It's a nice way to ease back into work, actually. Matinee Idle gives way to speakerphone, Wikipedia is replaced by multiple Moodle admin screens, and out come the tools of the trade; text editors, Excel, LDAP lookup and so on - there are several more databases involved. It takes a level of skill that comes with practice, so a steady buildup of calls has been good revision.

My wrist is a lot better, but it will probably be a couple of weeks before it can take a full load. I've sprained a ligament on the outside of my wrist; Voltaren and time will fix it.
