On Tuesday I threw a sick day. I felt like crap after all the business of Cama’i, and had picked up a nice chesty cough. Having no heat all Monday evening didn’t help. But, I picked myself up and was back in work today. I did have our Apple engineer threatening to wrestle me to the ground and give me a double wet-willy (he’s a big bloke, I wouldn’t have fought back) after spending an hour troubleshooting mobile Open Directory account synchronization problems off-site when the personal firewall is up. Bizarrely, log in sync worked, just not on demand, scheduled, or log out. A smile about April Fool’s didn’t cut it, but he saw the funny side of it, and was actually quite interesting and gives us more to poke around with as to when the firewall is actually brought up and if the log in sync runs differently as a result. Tomorrow I’m being allowed out the office again to head a few miles downriver to Oscarville to deploy their new Open Directory replica which should be good fun.
This evening was the K300 Kids Race, a 20 mile round trip race up river to the Hoffman fish camp and back, with a 30 minute layover for hotdogs, beans, and juice. I snagged a ride up in a truck with Bev Hoffman (I promised my chiropractor I wouldn’t bounce and shake along the river on a *snowmobile*, didn’t mention anything about a *truck* ), and got some good photos over the layover whilst grabbing a hot dog and juice to boot. All the kids had fun, and I’ll try to get some of my photos up here tomorrow. Have processed most of them and passed a few on to Casie for the K300 site, but too tired to edit them down for here tonight.
But, was quite weird tearing along the river in a truck, first time I’ve headed on to the ice road other than on a snowmobile. Was good fun, even with our little spin! A few miles down to Oscarville tomorrow should be cool too.
