Technology’s great! I’m a big fan. It allows me to send you useful emails regularly, for example. Imagine if I had to hand write and post 7,000 odd letters? Yeah, I don’t think so…
But technology’s great up until the point it doesn’t work…
Yesterday was day one of the LBD challenge. Day one’s always a bit manic, as you can imagine! Everyone has orientation, then we need to weigh everyone in and calculate their body fat percent, get them all set up with their eating plans, choose their teams… Like I said, manic. ?
We actually split it over two days for that reason. In fact I’m going back into the studio to do it all again in about an hour.
Yesterday was the day that technology decided it wasn’t going play ball. Yesterday was the day the internet connection decided to be about as reliable as an indicator on a BMW.
Of course everything runs off the internet these days… Our body fat calculator, even our check-in kiosk. So immediately we were on a go-slow with one weigh-in taking nearly 15 minutes!
I also needed to set up for the morning’s MCX 30/30 workout. And guess what? The MP3 player got half way through the first track and died. Kaput.
All the electronics had clearly had a meeting that morning and decided it would be a laugh to prank Punshon….
