Today I handed in my notice at ANT and signed on the dotted line at Bango.
It was a tough decision, with many contributory factors in both directions. (Which I’m not putting here! You’ll have to wait for the autobiography for the full story.)
Naturally, the hardest part is leaving behind people I like (and easiest/dislike, of course). I’m sure I’ll keep in touch with some of them.
The Bango job is Head of Customer Interface, sure to be universally known as HOCI. I expect to be interfering in all sorts of areas, as is my wont.
So, a weird few weeks then. I’ve never resigned from a job before…
The next few weeks will be… weird.
No, I haven’t suddenly started fancying women.
Last season of The West Wing to be shown on Channel 4: season 4.
Last season of The West Wing to be shown on C4 spin-off channel, E4: season 5. That was before E4 became available to everyone for free on Freeview.
The West Wing is now moving to More4, another C4 spin-off, which starts on Monday, and is also available on Freeview. First season they will show: season 6.
So unless you had E4 before it went free, The West Wing skips from season 4 to season 6. To compensate, there is apparently a 30-minute “catch-up” before the first season 6 episode is shown next Friday. Half an hour to cover an entire season.
Yeah, I know Sorkin left at the end of season 4 and it’s supposedly rubbish now, but that’s not the point!
Memo to self: BitTorrent.
…lighting fork handles in his memory.
Turns out I’m not going to Paris this week, or to Hong Kong next week. At least, that’s today’s thinking. It might all change again by the time I get into work tomorrow.
That’s Rome done then.
My photos, Chris and Melanie’s photos.
Not shown in the photos:
- The moment when Chris had his wallet nicked, and then later returned by the thief as Chris didn’t have any money in it.
- The many and varied ways in which a Rome restaurant can forget to deliver part of your order, typically vegetables.
- The contents of the Galleria Borghese, including a room full of Caravaggios.
- The stuff that’ll have to wait for the video, including, but not limited to, a drunken few hours on the Spanish Steps.
Andy wrote notes about where we went when, so expect those to appear on his blog with his photos RSN.
