THE CODE: Last night, came home from work to a half dozen requests varying from minor bugs on some code I am running to a request to look at and debug a cgi script or re-code it in PHP.. gawd, sometimes I LOATHE AIM.. I wish I could set "away" selectively or put someone "on hold" until I get around to them.. if I close the window, they pop up right in the middle of what Im typing (ticks me off), and if I minimize the window, that stupid flashing alert drives me nutz.. I suppose I could disable the flashing window when minimized, but then I'd forget that they had a problem.. and p*** them off.. so many issues, trying to discuss them all, accomplished absolutely nothing last night.. zip, zilch, nada...

I got so frustrated with it all I almost deep-sixed the server and everything to do with coding.. one of the warning signs of impending burnout.. SOOOO.. I am taking a few days off, and absolutely REFUSE to discuss code or server issues, much less look into them, until this holiday weekend....

finally getting health insurance this month.. about time! maybe get something done for my back problems..
