Both the kids are sick, Lisa with a cold and Jack with a dodgy tummy (or possibly a virus) so Marilyn will have them hone tomorrow. Off to Sydney on Thus morning for a few hours. Customer needs help compiling a DLL to work with Dimensions. Should a laugh. I have also started a Free software project on Sourceforge for Software Engineering Requirments (it's called RequireFreedom in a pathetic attempt to continue with cute project names!). Not a lot of activity so far as you can see. As part of this I am also trying to get to grips with UML and OO design Patterns. This is proving hard to do from books :-(
