Children [Aug. 24th, 2005|02:55 pm]
Listen in, listen Ian!
Children are great. As a rule, they are happy, smiling and funny.

But there's a time and a place for everything. This lunchtime, when I was trying to get through one of those annoying big revolving doors was not the time or the place for someone to let their child play in the door so it kept stopping. FFS, keep your spawn under control.

Two days of extensive debugging (ie chucking a load of System.out.printlns into all the Axis source has shown that my SOAP issue is on the server side. Incidentally, SOAP is a great acronym for a computer thing isn't it, because you can keep making jokes about having to learn all about SOAP and similar things. The hours just fly by.

See, this afternoon I saw a girl dragged at by her hair as her mother screamed that she wished she'd never given birth to her. A little harsh I thought.

And then I remembered I was in Essex and it's pretty much par for the course.
