Uninteresting Trivial Facts

My wife just pointed out that I have two massive eyebrow hairs sticking out.  Another sign of advancing age when hairs in certain places decide that they're no longer happy with their previous life-long length.

CKN, spotted yesterday...

Very poor management. Being left alone for that long things might actually start working properly. 

 

Time for some disruption.....sorry change management/organisational review/role re-definement/right-sizing/restructuring/etc....

It's so shameful that they've managed to save enough money by failing to reorganise that they can afford even more of "Sturgeon's Death Stars".  Just think how many hospitals that England have luckily managed to not build because of their much needed reorganisations.

Utter b*stards, have they no respect for tradition!!!

 

There is no place in the United Kingdom for modern shiny nice hospitals....apart from Private Hospitals for people who can afford to avoid the NHS.

Did you know that the last government provided £3.8bn in transformation funding for the NHS.  That's nearly 4 of those super-sized hospitals they could have funded outright.  Again, thankfully they declined to do this and are giving all that money to people to transform butterfly-like from underperforming organisations to these wonderful modern healthcare beasties, no need to show much improvement though, just transform somehow.

 

Ahem... just remembered that this is uninteresting trivial facts and was about to delete my posts but then realised that to politicians this really is uninteresting and trivial.

Nope, I had no idea.

 

What a marvellous waste of money, and to add to that it's hard to put a value on just how demotivating all this constant change is for the poor people who have to work in the NHS.

 

I love how they appear to have missed the qualifier that the transformation should be positive and considered an improvement and be measurable in some way.

 

I really wish I got projects to lead that had insane budgets with no clear goals, limited over-site and pretty much an open agenda to do what I want.

In Season 1 of the Sopranos they used to pronounce Mikey Palmice's name as "Palmisi" sometimes and then "Palmeechy" at other times.

I have just started working on a new project that the company I work for are doing for NHS Scotland. 

 

The striking thing about the Wail article was the implication that spending more per capita on things like the NHS was somehow a bad thing! :unsure:

Uninteresting and trivial: I just edited the metadata on about 350 albums on my hard drive.

I assume because it was trivial that you used one of the nice tools out there that does it for you?  I did my entire ripped music and DVD collections using the iHomeserver app's auto-tag function.

Autotagging still creates work, as the online databases are made up of data submitted by the lazy or semi-literate. I do sometimes use cddb, musicbrainz etc., but then I have to go through and correct plenty of it before it is usable.

 

So a bit of automatic looking up and a bit more manual work. There weren't any tracks without artist, track or album tags, but a lot was missing release dates and/or correct cover art.

 

Foobar allows you to write metadata to filenames and vice versa, so once it is all correct, I rename the files, then do a dynamic range scan and apply replaygain.

 

The Discogs site is useful for getting information on most titles.

The real trouble is the bootlegs and other unofficial bits'n'pieces. Those, and the compilations, can be real devils to track down.

Genuine generation gap conversation this morning. My 10 year old was doing something distasteful as 10 year old are wont to do. I said "You're sick!", "Awww, thanks Dad!" came the reply.

I've got a new mobile phone. It's an LG G3. I'm rather pleased with it so far.

 

That is all.
