I have been productive all day, even through lunch, so it is time for a short break.
I finished the thing I was working on yesterday. Or, at least, as finished as I could get it, seeing as not all the info was available. But, whatever.
Anyway, now I'm working on two new things. Well, one new thing, and one old thing that has reappeared again in a slightly new way.
One is the DTRA FAQ, which was one of my projects from last summer. This time I'm updating it to reflect the fact that we have a million of these things going on at once now since we won more contracts, and each one has different specs. As such, I'm using Access and VBScript (which I'm just copy-pasting; I don't actually know anything about it) to make it display different text based on different session ids. Whee.
The second I'm nore excited about, especially because I'll get to learn something new. We had a meeting this morning about trying to consolidate the programming/web design people and pool resources. As such, we need to get both a list of people and their skills and past projects, and also a list of all the various sample code and software we have lying around so people don't have to go looking for it when they need it. My first lead is Microsoft SharePoint, which appears to be a very complicated, but potentially very rewarding lead. Especially because there's one called service that comes with Server 2003, and one called Server you need a whole nother licence for, and one called designer, which is actually FrontPage in disguise. Since FrontPage is getting the axe. I would dance for joy, but I do have to give FrontPage credit for being better than Word. Anyway, so this is, like, the perfect project for me: figure out new software, and create extensive lists of links and archives by poking around looking for stuff. Never fear, I'll still be filling your friends pages with lists of links and archival cuts! But to get paid for it will be fun.
Saw Shrek 3 with Christine last night. Fun was had all around, especially when I was almost late. Mostly because I had to drive clear across Fairfax to Centerville, but. Anyway, you don't care about that, you care about the movie. Um, it was good, I guess. There were a lot of funny parts, but it was also a little contrived. Above average for killing time, but not something you'd want to watch a million times. It also has body switching. And Julie Andrews hums DoReMi. So.
|See it now!|

Haha, now it is time for a frantic post scramble because the Tristanator's on the warpath. Again. I'd just like to say for the record, Tristanator, that I am the only one up to date on my paperwork. Of course, I haven't finished an Empire post in, oh, what? A month and a half? Yes, well. And anyone who wants to take issue with (temporarily) dropping Masters can be directed to my Tale of woe and sorrow
. Yes, that was five seperate links. It's a long tale.
I don't understand why I lose focus so much in the afternoon. Like, right now, I just want to click randomly on windows. Which, you know, might actually provide a *little* amusement since I have 14 open right now. This morning I was a working machine, though. Saa. I got a lot done today, so... It's fine I guess.
Oh, and, I changed classes again. It's a Philosophy class in Blair at 9, which is no good, but it actually sounds interesting and isn't the second semester of 2. I'm going to keep looking, though.
So, Kate and I are going to Chili's. ...This promises to be interesting.
