Working away from home during the week inevitably that the weekend proper gets off to a slow and delayed start.
Generally I am so pooped on Friday evening that I am incapable of doing anything remotely demanding, and 24 hours later I am just starting to feel like myself again.
This is how it was last weekend.
Then there is the lawn mowing, plus doing the same for a neighbour who has had the misfortune of having had a heart-attack recently.
The band had a gig too, so that took care of Saturday.
Then there is the paperwork. You have to be very careful working away that things don't get missed, credit card bills and the like.
What I am trying to say is that, even though the transistors for my TS-180S had arrived, I never got round to fitting the replacement into my PLL WBA.
However, a chance conversation with a colleague about a really neat application from the Sysinternals people (now assimilated by the Borg (sorry, Microsoft!)) called "Desktops" which allows windows users to have multiple desktops in the same way that Ubuntu users have been able to for quite some time.
This little program was downloaded in a trice and installed almost as quickly, and WOW it really is great!
If you do bizarre things with PCs like I do, then this little gem is a godsend. However, my rather bizarre setup involves having three PCs on line (one is remote in the shed, the other two in my house "radio room") and as all three PCs how potentially have four desktops available at the click of a mouse, then you can guess how confused a fatigued brain can become.
