6:15am (gmt) and I want to visit one of my favourite places, fogcreek.com the home of Joel Spolsky and Co. There are two reasons, the first is that Joel writes great things which make me laugh and provide me with a regular inspirational boost. The second reason is that I wanted to revisit copilot, the remote control software.
I thought my connection was playing up when I couldn’t get to any of the fogcreek pages, but then found the very useful fogcreek network status blog which was bang up to date with the emergency maintenance work.
So it was my misfortune to need the site at just this time, but refreshing to have an explanation during the event not after it.
