Got up at 8:00 today….well, 8:07…got ready and got to work at 9. It’s like a new world record, I’m sure. Almost nobody was around so I figured everybody took the day/week off. At noon I messaged sung…who proceeded to tell me that today was a vacation day. I sure had no idea. I sure have no idea why they couldn’t have put that on the 2005 vacation schedule just to make sure people would notice it. I sure have no idea why they made us use 8 hours PTO for last friday but today is vacation. I sure wish I hadn’t awoken this morning.
The hot water in my shower lasts for approximately 7 minutes. This presents a problem, since I require 2 to 3 times this length. But I must go without. It makes me quite sad.
/sigh (steven lets out a long, drawn-out sigh)
hopefully when i drive them about and start negotiating prices one will stand out as the clear winner. why did mitsubishi have to go and screw everything up by coming out with a $28k coupe with a) 5 year warranty b) 650W 6cd mp3 player c) 263HP/260ftlb V6 6spd d) an awesome exterior and better interior.
anyway, i’m going to bed, school ends this week, next week i start working part time and continue working on my research project until graduation on 8/5. sign my lease and start moving on the 25th
i’m at work
i have to convert a whole lot of code to be able to handle unicode data, spanning 2 different languages (C++ & python) and multiple technologies from 3rd party code (pcre, xml-rpc, dom, sax) and talking to two disparate servers (MS exchange & ibm/lotus domino) and partially using COM, partially using Domino classes, and using STL throughout (of course having to use MS’s particularly poor VC6 stl implementation).
which (if you’re a programmer) explains the break I’m having to take right now to type this
Wake up this morning to find that water is off until 5pm.
…is probably the only class I’ve ever had in which the professor skips more than I do….
