What did I do today?

I did a large number of things today and ticked off all these things from my to do list:

  • Finished GST returns for 3 companies and paid GST
  • Billed a client for annual email services
  • Followed up on a job that is being worked on by Bob
  • Sent an email to contracting agencies looking for some contracting work
  • Successfully downloaded and installed tinymce for this drupal 5.x website in preparation for needing it for a new client - downloaded for research some video content modules for same potential client
  • Researched and installed Windows Sharepoint Services 3.0 side by side with my 2.0 installation on our SBS2003 server for our intranet. Troubleshot problems and resolved. Blogged the process. Next task here is to slowly migrate what we are doing on the 2.0 intranet to the 3.0 version.

Running and The Terminal

Did a lot of running today - ran 2 kms in 12 minutes on the treadmill as a warm up and then about another 4-5km or so in jogging interspersed with short sprints. (more sprinting than jogging!) Corey was tough on us but its all good!

Jude and I watched The Terminal tonight - really funny movie. I was crying with laughter at the romantic dinner scene.

Insurance Fun and Games

Its all fun and games with insurance here.

In the last couple of weeks we have had 3 separate insurance issues to deal with.

First, we had a computer breakdown. We have a policy that covers this specifically, so we had emergency repairs to do and then wait for the cheque to come. that took 3 weeks and we were out of pocket $3500 while we were waiting.

Then we had the car that we had sold but not swapped over (short by two days) hit by hail and a lot of damage to panels. The car yard no longer wants to give us our agreed trade price and the insurers assessor has assessed the damage as repairs only. However there is a secondary cost and that is to the market value of the vehicle. The car yard have declared even if it is repaired they wont give us the same price, and without repairs the trade in is way less than what the insurance would pay out. I am in "negotiations" with the insurance company to honour their commitment to repair to original market value.
