How do you ensure the tripod of the level, is level?

Probably has a little bubble thingy...  Though how you know that is calibrated...... :whistling:

I usually find the human eye is sensitive enough and corrects for other stuff like walls/ceiling not horizontal etc.

Question is Craig, are you allowing the observers in influence your behaviour..... :ph34r:

The laser has a hanging plum bob thingy (call me Mr Teknickell) inside that self levels.  If the green light is on on the top, you're good to go.

I need two whiteboards to write up the network status (there's a job I'm dreading), and the layout lends itself to putting the work space down the back.  I'll be putting some skydive photos on the wall up the front where I can se it day to day.

I built a clock out of one of Buffy's side panels Alan, but its going in the garage.  The partners at work are already walking in and shaking their heads at the multi screen pc, wandering off muttering something about mollycoddling their tame nerd.

Day 40.

NzhVc4yRSAKiadhC+F7a4Q.jpg

Pulling up the van at home just before midnight. 15 hour workday after little sleep, with another to come tomorrow.  Been shuttling between 4 sites ripping the data out of an outdated and unsupported version of Exchange sever, and forklifting it in chunks up to the cloud.  Well tired, need to put out the flame at at least one end of the candle, hopefully the middle too.

A day spent immersed in full nerd mode.

Eh By Gum Lad when I started them there TV things would have been lined listing paper cello taped to the wall, and that key board thing your using was an 80 col hand card punch like this:

And you want stress lad, just try dropping a tray of 500 cards you have just finished hand punching on the floor!

Mind you we could chain smoke all day at our desks, and a two hour lunch break at the pub was the norm rather than the exception and management wouldn't utter a squeak otherwise it was "i'm off to another contract" Can still remember getting my first 80 col Green Screen Terminal with Editor software on the mainframe so we no longer had to edit programs by pushing a chad back in a hole applying a bit of sticky tape to hold it in place and then over punching the card. Its all gone down hill since those days!

:biggrin: Alan
Oh and you could  pat a punch girl on the Bum, and get a smile in return instead of needing to effect a £1M NDA........  Lets get on with Brexit and put things back as they were.:whistling:

Punch cards were once part of my skill set, as were triple carbons, band printers and Winchester drives.  

Its a lot better these days!

Day 42.

D69324E7-C87C-4C7E-A856-EC2754A0C27D.png

Senior management’s birthday, and after calling her to organize to meet for dinner, I pocket FaceTimed her.  While fishing the phone out of my pocket to figure out what the noise was, I managed to hit enough buttons to screenshot this.

A photo of her, even a bad one with a shocker of me in the corner is welcome relief!

Oh..... I dunno…….. there's some floor visible!  Might have to send you a broom though.....

Have similar problems and probably need to clear a car sized space for next week :ohmy:  The same car was there just a couple of weeks ago - dunno what happened to the gap it left!

Hello All

                 looks like my type of tidying(just pile it somewhere else)on/under the car etc

The problem then is it had been in that place since God was a boy and now you have no idea were it is!(so another 4 hours wasted looking for it!)

Thre three rules of luggage on a skydiving tour are pack light, take some more out, and pack lighter.

This little daypack, a credit card and my parachute are all I’ve got till Sunday night.
