Database engineering has always been an hassle for me and now I have to deal with quite a bit of it. Now I kinda like it and have been learning a lot. Helps to work directly below someone who's proficient and oozes experience. In the process I've also been picking up a lot of emacs tricks which are a huge help for productivity. This, in fact, is a direct result of leaving my Macbook at home now and using the desktop that's been assigned to me at work.

So, what I'm developing at work is an information system to manage the performance evaluation of public administration workers and their superiors. In Portugal, this is called SIADAP. I need to deliver the first part of the system, up and running, by the end of next week and not being entirely too productive using CakePHP yet is a bit of a problem.

In the meantime, my back is killing me again. I always predicted I'd have back problems but not when I'm bloody 24 going on 25. I'm hoping I won't need to pay a visit to the osteopath this time around, but it all depends on how I feel later today.
