Some time ago, one of the guys from the team talked to us about the Welsh Ambulance Service Community First Responder schemes. More recently, reading a post from Tom, I was reminded of the scheme and thought about joining. With the medical training the Mountain Rescue gave me, I have a reasonable knowledge of the […]

Wow, well, what a fun-packed weekend that was. I’m going to have to provide a summary version of recent events because my ‘net connection is currently not working. BT are, apparently, dealing. Joy. We had a debrief about the various callouts from last week on Thursday night, and an update on the Milford Haven chap […]

Well, it looks as though the gentleman we were looking for in Milford Haven has turned up, unfortunately dead. We were searching in and around the area west of Hubberston. We’d had a positive sighting of him here, and Caroline and I were searching the area between the golf course and the LNG plant, and […]

It’s 1845. I’m in the office. I’m writing, from scratch, the first piece of documentation on the core configuration file of our product.

The search on Saturday has made the BBC including a comment from Huw, the deputy team leader. The rescue in Aberystwyth on Saturday night also hit the news here. I also forgot to mention that we saw the archaeological dig that they’re talking about on the BBC site in Milford Haven. Shame they didn’t get […]

It has been a particularly long weekend. On Friday, we had a leaving do at work, so I popped out for a swift pint before heading back to the office to pick up my coat and bag and head off. As I was leaving, one of the project managers set off the alarm for the […]

You know how, as sysadmins, we often need to “fixor” things? Well, here’s one sure-fire way of making sure that whatever is broken is most definitely f1x3d.

Well, we just had an area call in Tonypandy, but it got stood down as I was on the way. So I headed back to park near the Fire station where I was originally (Hello nice firemen! Sorry about turning around in your driveway!). Decided it was far too warm and not enough rain to […]
