Had an interesting and I think quite fruitful week in Galway researchwise. Can't really go into details due to the nature of the work.
A part of that I had a quite negative experience with regard to the accommodation. Worthy of an entire post in itself as it does not suffice to say that the Travelodge sucks.
I was reminded of another post I had half written and not completed about the perils for some sections of the engineering community. Have to finish that and throw it out for consideration.
