Life, or something not so much like it...

Got back from San Jose on monday night. Had a good evening handing out with friends, but then woke up on tuesday morning feeling like a caved-in ashtray. Went to work on tuesday, but have been home sick for the last two days...hopefully will get to work tomorrow.

Got a pile of photos from my trip, which turned out fairly well. Some of the jellyfish photos are a bit blurry, but they were taken in low light at 300mm, so that's to be expected. A few of the photos from Monterey were fantastic, including a few from the aquarium, in addition to the ones from San Francisco the day before, so not a complete loss. Seriously need to get a digital body for EF lenses though...


Been feeling a bit under the weather ever since vacation, so haven't been doing a lot of work - mostly been watching playoff baseball. Cobbled together the schema for a new database to manage projects and reports at work, and I'm hacking on that a bit - need to have something working tomorrow, so I'll probably take another look at it tonight if I feel better. I need to read the manual on PostgreSQL stored procedures and triggers, and then move over from MySQL. That's going to be quite a project, since I don't have a database abstraction layer in the existing codebase, which means that I'll have to change a lot of direct database access code, but it needs to be done...

No real looks at Gnutizen over the last week or so - need to sync up my source tree with the existing repository in any case, so I don't get too far out of whack. I've adopted a couple of database projects to fill my spare time, and hopefully eventually give me some spare time in the future by making my day job easier.
