first real entry:
We'll have to see if I can get into this public diary concept. I have kept a journal here and there before, but this is... interesting. It will probably suffice as a way to keep track of my day to day activities sans private stuff. Anyway...
Monica goes home:
Saw Monica off to Ohio early this morning. She'll be gone for 10 days... I have a bachelor pad for 10 days!
need more sleep:
I had a nasty headache and therefore slept for the most of the day. I haven't been getting enough sleep anyway. I have National Guard tomorrow though, so I need a bit of rest.
work and shelve2.py:
Wandered into work this evening. I needed to complete this report generating crap that has been overcomplicating my life recently. It is overcomplicating things at work namely due to the fact that... it's overly complicated! I should just toss out all the code and start fresh, but that would be... painful.
Wrote a Python module that wraps around shelve. It allows you to make a mini database with any serializable object as a key. Very powerful for small databases (i.e. persistent objects). Unfortunately, there appears to be some weirdness with the cPickle version of pickle, so I have to use pickle instead which is MUCH slower. The really nasty part is that I am having difficulty replicating the error as misa pointed out to me in an email. Oi!
trying to find time to...
Things on my todo list:
sleep more often. spend more time with Monica. hit the gym every day. buy a new machine, network Monica's to mine Probably make her piece of junk just an X-term. get high-speed connectivity already! finish xboids the xscreensaver boid plug in. It has to be written in C which I really need to brush up on. more hacks... trying to boost my GUI skills, and other knowledge.
