Project Notes

Have a basic version of Object working until toad and I flesh out the view/filter hierarchy. Shouldn't be too bad, it's just a little repetitive.

I also finished a caching mixin for all the Data subclasses. It will basicly memoize any search result in a (presumably) faster cache collection class. As long as the cost of lookup in the cache is lower then the cost to look things up in the the collection that is using the cache mixin, it's a win in time, if not space. At least the cache stores thing in strong references right now, rather then having a second copy of the data.

Life/Work/Everything

3 days till I fly to London. Hopefully, what I'm current suffering from is allergies, and not a cold. At any rate, I'm gonna need to stock up on decongestants, or risk rupturing one of my eardrums again.

Don't feel entirely prepared -- my slack coefficient at work is rather high, so the ratio of work completed/work that needs to be finished is slowly approaching zero. Blah. Need to finish documenting/exporting the db schema so I can load it up on the host machine once I get there. Worst thing is that we won't have a machine to install things on until midweek. Delays in shipping, I guess.

My stepdaughter is beginning to pull out of her depressive slump. And I seem to be reaching a new level of acceptance. She asked if she could call me 'dad' the other day. That felt good.

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
