Back in Barbados after two weeks in "road warrior" mode.

I don't know how people work with only one screen. Seriously!

I know a couple that work from home with multiple screens (each has 2 wide screens, and they have a spare on site). When the go on the road, they have plug in USB screens that they hook to their laptops as second screens.

When I was a lad we didn't even 'ave screens. We 'ad to listen for the screams of a young boy being poked by a lever when the program finished. And we 'ad that boy count the rotations of the shaft to tell us the answer.

I was that boy.

Shockingly, this is still how some error coding reporting solutions work - see Step 5 and after here.

I can attest that this is actually true. I ran that sequence. Don't laugh - steps 2, 3 and 4 are precisely true.
