- ADMiSSeS is sick, and that is *not* good. :(
Found a not-so slight problem with my research database (which I'm using as a prototype for a project I intend to release under the GPL later). Fixing it will likely break the 1 kloc of SQL I've already written to do my thesis calcs, but...
So far, the main data table's been fixed, but all of the tables linking to it have to be updated. Rather than tempting fate and trying to fix everything at once (while hungry and distracted), I decided to take a few hours off and go downtown. Walking through my usual haunts just north of downtown usually clears my head. Had dinner downtown at a little deli, bought a book of poetry (a first) written by a friend (his first book), then headed up to the grad pub for an hour and read. David O'Meara's Storm Still is a wonderful book, btw (insert shameless plug here).
Alas, it looks like tonight is a wash for database work. I've had a couple of pints of beer this eve (Hey, do I turn down a friend offering a pint of Guiness?? I think not! :) and coming in the door tonight, my housemate hands me a glass of Jamaican rum.
So much for productivity.
Given that DROP TABLE queries don't forgive, I'm off to bed to sleep off this feeling, and perhaps I'll find tomorrow a better and productive day. My copy of Desai's Intro to DBMS awaits.
