Today at work Ahmad (funniest mofo the world's ever seen) mentioned a couple of funny names of the real people he once knew. One of them was Sheik Mahboob, which sent me rolling on the floor for at least 3 minutes, the other one being something like Doug Zheet.

For one reason or another, it wasn't being done at the time. As a CVS user and admin, I wanted to set up CVS but decided to explore other options as well, including Perforce and SVN. Well, the choice between those 2 was easy: SVN is completely free while Perforce allows only 2 licenses with $800/license beyond those 2.

So a couple of days ago I finally visited London. The train from Cambridge takes about 1h15m, and the roundtrip ticket only costs 13 pounds due to some promotion. I ended up walking around a lot and taking the hop on – hop off tour bus. One day is obviously not enough to see all of London but it allowed me to see lots of famous things without entering them.
Here are the pictures: 2006.07.08 London.
