implementing multi-tiered fault-tolerant web applications in my free time.

Gee, college is fun. The good news is that graduation is so close I can almost taste my diploma. The bad news is that I'm stressed enough to actually taste, and chew up, my diploma.

I really need to finish this project. I've been working on it for the last month, and I think that the design is all hunky dory. The only problem is turning what I know to be a correct design into working code, and then fixing all the parts of the design that were simply WRONG.


Actually, I think all my earlier prototypes weeded out the bad bits. Except the part where the design says "And then a miracle occurs."

Anyway, all is going well, when it's going. It takes a while to get into "writing code" mode, and it's hard to avoid being distracted in a house with two very active and imaginitive kids, a frazzled wife, a neurotic cat, sixty thousand llamas, the Royal Canadian Bikini Marching Band, and a carton of ice cream. (Ice cream's almost gone.)

Um, yeah.

So, kids, wife, and cat are all asleep now. Now I need to shift back into coding mode.


OK. Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more. gcc for Harry, England, and St. George.

You know it's time to get some sleep when your protocol includes messages like EAT_FLAMING_DEATH and PISS_OFF_HOSER.
