Again I'm staying a bit too late at the office, compensating for some overly late "mornings" as well as doing some experimental work that's not scheduled for during my normal working hours. I brushed off my mad DHTML skills and made some fancy dynamic web page stuff for our internal test systems, just to realize as I was nearing completion, that the snazzy new features didn't work at all in Internet Explorer. Luckily, Internet Explorer is not widely used here, but it is a sort of annoying feeling. I was all happy-happy-joy-joy when I tried to use document.all in Javascript (it was many years since I made any serious Javascript effort), and Firefox politely informed that the W3C-conformant way of doing what I was trying to do, was to call the document.getElementById() function. So I was lured into the delusion that I was actually doing some bad-ass cross-browser stuff. But of course I wasn't. Humbled, I went back to replacing myself with little shell scripts here and there.

Again, I asked the travel planner on how to get home -- I have now moved to the city, so the walk home is not quite as long anymore. Nevertheless, even an half-hour walk is less than tempting now. I found it interesting to note the similarities and differences in the route suggested by the travel planner, and the route I used during the summer when going to work by bike.
(Oops -- I noticed that when using inline images, they may easily overflow into the previous post on the Advogato recent blog entries page. Not very polite of me.)
