The ol' 9 to 5

Though I'm in fact not 100% finished with the staff activity report web app, everybody's getting training on it today. I even received a couple of changes last night after 5pm, so I actually worked on it a bit at home. Reworked several things while I was at it; think it's a little less kludgy in places now. And my, how much easier it was to actually get some work done at home!

At any rate, no doubt I'll have some tweaking, fine-tuning, bug-fixing to do with it in the next couple of weeks, but I'm just relieved that it didn't blow up this morning. I wouldn't have enjoyed looking like an oaf, and I'm sure my manager (conducting the training) wouldn't have either. Furthermore, the iPaq it's running on is handling the load beautifully... Not that the load is that great, but it had been a concern, simply because I hadn't the foggiest idea of what hardware would really be necessary.

Now let's see if someone here develops some interest in how some freaky-looking kid in tech support did this with free software and a spare machine. The doc root index lists what I'm using, complete with links to the main sites and license information. Even threw the uptime in there... And the page title? LAMP Light @ [my company] :)

Hmm... there was more floating around in my head earlier, but I'm not sure where it went. More later, I guess.
