A useful person to have around

I spent the weekend setting up a network. I’d been looking at a particular problem for six hours when my friend Ben wandered over. I give him a quick description of the issue, and he says ‘oh, that’ll be the switch’. And it was. I like to think I spent six hours honing the problem to its basic characteristics, that I was too deeply embedded to get a proper perspective, and there was an alien sonic befuddler implanted last week, but the truth is Ben just rocks.


Also, here are some scratch and sniff postage stamps.
