July 3rd, 2002

It's raining, so I got to work very damp. However, knowing where my towel is, drying off and changing into another pair of jeans was the work of a couple of minutes.

Slept like shit last night.

Cow-orkers are all talking complete bollocks, the thread about naked wombles being the most coherent.

Tired. Bored. But I have a doughnut; soon I will have coffee.

Europe's largest TV set-top box manufacturer Pace (PIC.L) yesterday warned that pre-tax profits would fall £1.7m ($2.6m) short of target for the year ended June 1 and £8m behind forecasts for the year to June 2003. The announcement, the third profit warning in four months, forced Pace shares down 40%, or 28½p, to 43¾p, and resulted from a contract with BSkyB (LSE: BSY.L - news - msgs) (BSY.L) where Pace had been forced to sell set-top boxes to the pay-TV giant for less than it cost to make them. Analysts said that BSkyB 'clearly had them over a barrel', and it seemed to be 'just one thing after another'. Pace reports annual figures next Tuesday.
