The week so far…
Monday: Toe really giving me grief. Lots of pain and blood. Lots of swearing too come to think on it. Something to do with having the skin removed from the top of the toe will do that Work wise it was pretty good. Mainly working with some address lookup apis again. I found it interesting which probably goes a long way to prove just how sad I am. On the flip side I am fortunate that I like my job for the most part, though like may be the wrong word. Perhaps it should be find interesting. Monday night I got a “little” drunk, I can’t remember why though. I remember popping onto IRC to say hi to people I also remember chucking a blood soaked sock away, haha.
Tuesday: Not a bad day at all. Just testing out some dynamic XML generation scripts. A little boring, but had to be done. I found it rewarding to find the errors and then rectify them. I also took part in a quiz at a pub too. Our team came joint bottom last (again). I think we just need to get a bit of luck. Its not like we are seriously behind the top team. Points difference was only 15. Better next time I think is the right attitude to have. Foot was still sore and not too much blood either.
Wednesday: A continuation of testing of the XML scripts. I hope to have them live by tomorrow. I also had fun fixing a little logic error in an online order system. That took up most of the afternoon. Sorry to say I can’t really go into details. I also had to track down a lost invoice (found) . Just generally boring stuff. Toe bled a bit today, so thats not good. Blaming wearing the wrong shoes.
The Week Ahead:
Looking to the next few days my big goals are:
1) Get the XML stuff out of testing and into production mode
2) Monitor the ordering process to see if my fix has worked
3) Clear more space off the server, possibly do more with the cloud.
4) Do something to help my toe heal quicker (Maybe take shoes off when not walking?)
5) Go for a run on Saturday, followed possibly by a swim. Toe must be good to do either of those.
