Russell in his temporary network office
Suffolk Networks and a Short Wander Around Eye - 27th October 2005
One of the great joys of being able to work at home is the ability to stagger working hours a bit. And so it was, the day after the Norwich Beer Festival, I met up with Suffolk County Council chum Russell, who was working up the road in Eye connecting a new (or rather re-built) office to the Suffolk wide-area network (WAN) and sticking in all the building networking. Trading in for a late finish allowed an hour off to have a look at the works and to wander around Eye for a bit - even exploring some parts I've never yet been to, despite having lived around "these here parts" for nigh on 15 years...

Newly-plastered walls in what was the Social Services building (and what will be a new 'one-stop shop')
