Work

Kinda been plodding along, not accomplishing as much as I should. There is a lot that needs to be done and I have to catch up with what misa has been doing.
Fortunately, I got the preliminary reporting tools done. They software runs fairly quickly and is immediately useful.

This Past Weekend

Went to visit some friends of ours and played outside all weekend. No computer. Ok, I did read a bit of K&Rs The C Programming Language (I'm trying to brush up). But I didn't lay a single finger on a computer keyboard... no really!

Worked a bit on xboids for the xscreensaver. Damn my C skills are not what they used to be. That's ok though; they'll come back.

My brother is back in the US (he and his family have lived outside the US since 1990? while serving in the Air Force). We've been playing phone tag. Can't wait to see him again.

Monica comes back tomorrow. I missed her tremendously, of course. She is bringing our niece Bryn back with her for a week. It should be... interesting... and fun! :) Nothing like a 3.5 year old to remind you how out of shape you are no matter how often you hit the gym.
