You know you’re back sharing the internets when uploading any file bigger than 100kb will take almost an hour! My brother claimed he’s innocent, but the jury is still out on that one. Day 17 in the visa waiting game and lo and behold I am actually starting to enjoy it. Perhaps after being screamed at by multiple people to just relax and there’s nothing you can do, I finally lost the will to stress out. That being said, I am likely to take up the tense past time once the 40 working days period is over…but we’ll cross that bridge once we get there.
Incidentally, if you ever wonder how many people does it take to process the tens and thousand of visa application sent to the British High Commission, the magic answer is not 42 or even 7, but 5. It boggles the mind that with over a million pound in surplus from the BHC activities alone they haven’t actually used that money to invest in more people or streamline their system. Then again, what do I know?
In the meantime, I am learning the art of zen from the family dog. He’s mellowed down quite a lot since he turned 3 this year and is quite happy to sit close to me and nap the day away. On happier craft related news, Paul Mietx Egli from Quilt2Go has confirmed that the long awaited Knitminder is finally out! I blogged about StitchMinder last year when the application first launched, now there’s a 0.2 version to update to, but more excitingly with Knitminder you can now keep track of all your knitting projects. There is no integration with ravelry as yet, but I won’t be surprised to see something happening very soon from the sound of things.
