The Longest Possible Day

I post here every day - or I try to at least. What is the longest possible gap between posts for me to leave, and still achieve that? Well - it's 48 hours and I'm very close to that today.

Not that it's been quiet - in fact I had my head down yesterday, taking a whole lot of pages that we transferred from the old server like the Open source Quiz pages and updating them to something more recent (quiz index, a quiz replacement page and some of the old questions), labelling images on pages for images searches at www.wwuu.co.uk, and loading Truetype fonts into our PHP installation, and enabling the necessary functions. This has allowed me - amongst other things to add dynamic wording on our First Great Western Train Running Diagram so that users of The Coffeeshop can see what's up at a glance, even on a day when there's a lot up. The we found that there were some sluggish responses from our server, which co-incidentally (?) always seem to come from at times when certain visitors are around. So they had to be looked into and dealt with on top of everything else, and as a matter of some priority.

Today has been "just" a Linux course - well, I say just a course but it's been fabulous fun as usual, and a great group of five, and it carries on tomorrow. Really rewarding course to give. Plus this, plus that, plus the other. But that's all lead to a gap that's going to be around 44 hours by the time I post his.

I was musing on the hotel side as to our longest gap between checkins. We have a lot of hotel guests from the USA, and they often arrive at Heathrow on morning flights before coming to Melksham, checking in to the hotel as early as 10 or 11 in the morning. If we know ahead of time, we're quite happy with this - especially at the start of the week, for a week's stay. And then at the end of the day, there are the people who spend a full day at home or work before travelling to their Melksham Hotel, perhaps not realising just how far it is for them - or guests who come in to Bristol Airport n the last flight from Dublin ... which then gets delayed. Again - we're quite open to this (we wouldn't be in the business if we weren't) but it can make for a mighty long day. Longest gap between checkins? On a Sunday - around 12 hours!
