  • Pro tip: Just skip the root canal and go for the titanium screw option. Not bad at all. Only snag – I’m now on my 4th antibiotics course and I have a whole bag of meds including pro-biotics and steroids – which I think are to help the bone settle around the screw.
  • Friday, up early, network configs, walked to The Yard and had lunch, drove back to Cape Town, braai with Wouter.
  • Two types of jobs: 1) doing things others don’t want to do, 2) doing things others can’t do. If you are not in engineering, you are in support.
