Actually started working more on SPITE last night and
quickly got entirely too frustrated. It's hard for me to
code when I have a throbbing headache and I'm depressed.
Somehow I still have to tie together 3 combo boxes and a few
text boxes so that when you change any of them the rest get
updated. Ick. sigh Some days i just feel like a
frustation and loathing
It occurred to me today that what annoys me most about
windows is the magic involved. I have about as many windows
skillz as I have unix skillz and I've found that under unix
when something doesn't work there is a logical answer.
Under windows there often isn't. For example, I've had two
brand new machines today that couldn't see 'Network
Neighborhood'. One of them was fixed by adding NetBEUI as a
protocol, which is weird because nothing else on our network
speaks netBEUI...the other one randomly fixed itself after
about 10 reboots. Like I said, magic. And not the nice
kind, either, totally wild magic.
