The quick and the dead
MT: The FWi Sudo-Cow Invitational Challenge Cup took place this afternoon. Some whopping times had been laid down in qualifying, and the event was greeted with a monstrous amount of anticipation.
Here we’re the results:
1st place – Mr Foodchain, 7 mins
2nd place – Mr FWi, 10 mins
3rd place – Mr Allen-Stevens (representing the users), 12 mins
DNF – Mr Land and Farms
Hmmm … have to say that I’m a tad disappointed not to be today’s Sudo-Cow King. There have been some whisperings of questionable tactics (eg. playing on through the cake break), but I’m sure they’re just rumours … eh Sam?
I can already see that this is set to become a regular feature of the daily grind in FW Towers. Please feel free to send in your times, but be warned, if they’re implausibly quick I just won’t believe you! (my ball, my rules!)
TR: Even if the assistant was updating the events calendar, I reckon working on a website is still a sexy job compared to some of the mind-numbingly boring jobs a lot of us have been lumbered with as a student and as a new graduate. Days in grain driers, supermarket shelf stacker, van driver and estate vermin control (co-ordinator, nonetheless!) were among my early career low points!
Surely other people had their share of dire temporary jobs after they graduated? Or was it just me, unable to secure any more meaningful form of employment?
MT: The growing popularity of our Sudo-cow game is evident both inside and outside the office. On the outside we have traffic figures for the

Anyway, inside the walls of FW Towers, the competition to be crowned Sudo-Cow King is hotting up. Yours truly laid down the gauntlet with some inspired number work this afternoon, conquering the beast in record time, but Mr Land & Farms and Mr Foodchain both fancy themselves as the young pretenders with faster fingers.
The net result is a head-to-head Sudo-Cow play off tomorrow. The pressure is most definately on.
Cometh the hour …
Monkey see, monkey do
MT: We were lucky enough to have a young graduate helping out on the site over the last few days.
Our huge backlog of tasks requires the frequent presence of whatever dregs of temporary employment we can scrape up for the peanuts offered up by Mr Farmers Weekly.
So … being the benign and gentle leader that I am I put this particular offering to work updating our events calendar. A more thrilling and rewarding way to spend two days (which surely must have flown by) I stuggle to imaging.
Anyhow young Tom has done a stirling job (feel free to browse the full listings of the SAC agricultural calendar – i’m sure you will) as our temporary web monkey and really has laid down the gauntlet for future web monkeys. I’m thinking of setting up a league system.
