I love sudden technical problems any time past 4pm...

All over for another day, well done everyone.
Time for tea and biscuits. Well, crackers anyway. I don't have any biscuits :(
Lunch is a pasta dish designed to be eaten cold. I'm heating it in the oven. I like hot pasta. I'm not a bad person.
I've cracked my head really hard on various wooden objects every day for the last three days. Wood has it in for me, it seems.
Oh no, not that again...
