Much has happened of late...

I really need to spend some time on my web site...or on the WhoNose scripts, really. But recent efforts have been directed towards GOVIA... We're approaching all-around functionality now, rather than just having a very crude search engine to see a dozen contributions.

The original XML format has changed a good bit; I'm not even sure the original crude search engine works as it should at this point. I'll have to re-fix it when we get other things more finalized.

Currently, we're focused (or are about to be focused...) on participant registration and getting the queue to work as it should.

Day Job
Difficult to get things approved by the right people and finalized... but the day job hacking project will probably be ready for use next week. Too much other internal training and meeting going on this week, plus I have a few things to change based on some up-the-ladder wishes.

Will be good when we start using it though... Rather than having over a hundred Word documents being emailed all over creation to wind up in front of one poor guy who has to cut and paste into another document to save as HTML, everyone will just go to a happy URL. Supervisors will have to approve the reports with the click of a button, and everything will be dumped automatically into HTML.

May be the first success for open source in my company, thanks to my "sneakiness..." :)

While I'm thinking of it... My Win2k box at work has been up over 80 days. I'm pushing it for a record and surprisingly enough, it's not letting me down! Of course why shouldn't it be able to handle browser windows, Outlook, PuTTY windows and playing some mp3's? That's about all the box does...

What's nutty to me looking at what I've just typed here, and considering what I've been up to recently, it's hard to believe it hasn't even been a full year yet since my first install of Linux...

As far as personal life goes, the recent dog-related bad/sad news was perhaps just a harbinger, as early last week my marriage came crashing down around my head. Crazy world.

well all of our friends baby / they're going insane now
