A data centre’s progress – drinka pinta milka day

new data center for Timico in progress

It’s coming along as you can see if you click on the header image. It always amazes me what one bloke can do when he has a few tools to help him. I guess it is the same in farming. Along came the industrial revolution and everyone left the fields to be replaced by machines.

Today has been spent entering industry awards. I assume it is the same in the farming business (to continue with the theme).  “Why is your pint of milk better value than your competitors?” I suppose you can brush up your best cow and take her along and have something solid for the judges to evaluate:).

I have had to sit through some long hot tedious awards evenings, usually run by a magazine eager to reward its biggest advertisers. They can be useful to win though as we  have found out when we got Highly Commended in the Best ITSP (Large Enterprise Category) at this year’s ITSPA Awards. Independent Awards can be quite prestigious.

I’m not going to tell you which awards these were today in case we don’t win – you will have to wait 🙂 – and my advice to you is to “drinka pinta milka day”.  It will make you a winner.

I should think that by the time I put up the next photo of the new build the walls will be complete. Btw I have been asked if I can put up an artist’s impression of the new building but I’m sorry to say I don’t have one in electronic form. I will ask the builders if they have one.

    Yep, that was me!
    I’ve heard that some high-tech firms have invested in something called a SCANNER! 😛
    I appreciate it’s bleeding edge so you might have wait for ‘bob the builder’… 😉

    HmmmUK

  2. Hi Tref,

    “there is an app for that !”

    My iPhone has an app called scanner pro, it is brilliant. It takes a photo of whatever it is that needs scanning, turns it into a PDF and uploads it directly to my Dropbox account. Pop round with your artists impression and we will see if we can get an image with a high enough resolution to look nice on your blog.

    Couldn’t you have just taken a picture of the current building? From looking at the build each day, it appears very familiar.
