Lad had face to face interview with Rational DB company in Brighton yesterday. Said it went well (again). Said the Team Leader is on holiday (again). Said we should hear by 'middle of next week' (again).

'a lot of the code we get submitted for the Tech Test is a confused, sprawling mess but your solution was neat and concise'.


@andyc fingers crossed for him; Brighton is a lovely place to work.

@Luke Bloody expensive to live though on £26k. Maybe he could come and lodge with you. LOL !

@andyc I doubt he could afford to lodge with me! How anybody can afford to live in Brighton, or the SE in general, can afford to start out these days is beyond me. He'll probably just have to live somewhere unfashionable like Saltdean or Lancing.

@Luke My lass (I don't call them 'lad' and 'lass' at home - dunno why I do so here) studied at Brighton Met for 3 years so she knows the cheap areas and nightspots pretty well.

Lad want to live close enough to cycle or walk to work. As this office is 5 mins from station, that may be tricky.

@andyc @Luke
I thought there were plenty of starter homes like this in SE England, no?

@fitheach @andyc I've seen similar in the local parks and they're occupied by folks drinking super strength cider

Only because you haven't got Minimum Pricing for Alcohol. Bye, bye, cheap cider.
