Nice

Well myself and Robin are currently in the sky in a orange metal tube laughing in the face of evolution. Who says humans can fly? Pah!

We're heading to Nice where we will hopefully manage to catch our ferry to Corsica. There is not much time between our scheduled arrival and the ferry's scheduled departure and we didn't do ourselves any favours by sitting in blissful ignorance in the coffee shop while our flight went to final call! We were last in the plane but still had to queue to get on so thankfully we cannot be blamed for adding any delay!
(update from the future - we made it!)

This week is a bit of an experiment. As our company, Tribalogic Ltd, is a web development firm with our office telephones using VoIP, our physical location often does not matter. So myself and Rob have packed one of the hardware phones into a bag an are heading off to meet our colleague Gerome in Corsica where his family have a holiday home (with an Internet connection obviously!).

We should still be able to answer calls and deal with customer support etc. But time will tell if the theory matches the practice!

If all this works successfully it will maybe make me think more seriously about spending a winter season in a ski resort somewhere. I'd be able to help out on the phone and speak to customers from a little base in the alps so the only problem would be how it would affect our small team if I was away for a period of time. But before I get carried away with myself, we'll see how this week works out technically!

  • Hope you enjoyed working from Corsica, all you need to do know is to fix the VoIP phone on your snowboard 🙂

  • I bet Colin is secretly thinking of a way to do just that….
