Lull

I have a pretty much clear desk today as far as engineering consultancy is concerned. Reports and designs are all out and awaiting comment.

I'm expecting a call from site today to tell me if the sewage treatment plant at the Indian restaurant has started behaving now that the owner has started using eco-label products instead of the highly alkaline industrial cleaners he was using before. Initial anecdotal reports of absence of distributor blocking and clear effluent from the grease trap are hopeful.

My students at Nottingham have been set a knotty troubleshooting problem, but they seem to be rising to the challenge. More of the same for them next week, as we suspend normal lectures for week eight of the course for them to attempt a suite of practical problem solving exercises.
