Been going along great today throwing this last minute requested report together, until the Reportdocument.ExportToDisk() function started rambling on about some missing parameter exception :hammer: ...

Forget it, it can wait 'til tomorrow :glare:

Today I'm trying to figure out how our users think (or don't think). I get this lovely responsibility because by providing some usage support for our DMS, everyone assumes that development is responsible for ALL support for EVERYTHING. I had a lady call me and explain a problem. When she told me she had 3 active directory accounts, I should have just hung up and called IT. But I didn't. For some inexplicable reason, I decided to let her explain why she has multiple accounts and how she uses them. Then I talked to IT and had the situation explained to me. Apparently she has a second AD account (where she got the idea that she has 3 is beyond all of us) to be able to map a network drive from another office on a different domain. I don't know what she is actually doing, but nowhere in her halting, confused explanation of what she's doing did she approach ANYTHING that resembles instructions to map a network drive. I hate not drinking coffee.

There's an easy fix for that.

I know. But I make myself lay off every once in a while, just to give my adrenal glands a break and to avoid getting too dependent on it. I've always had this thing with addiction, where if I think for a second that I'm developing a dependence on something, I immediately quit whatever it is (except my job, because I accept my dependence on money). I guess that's a holdover from my days as a stupid teenager on drugs. I saw enough friends end up dead or in prison that I developed a bit of a complex about it. I suppose it's better to end up that way than the alternative that those friends chose.

Better question today: what am I not working on? (What aren't I working on? What isn't I working on? On what am I not working? What work am I avoiding? meh... fuck it)

My list for the day:

- Joomla install
- Template finalization/implementation
- 2 Custom coded mods to current main site
- Data entry to development main site
- 6 graphics to design against my will
- 2 articles to write
- Governance charter to read and review
- 3 meetings to attend

Completed so far:

- Joomla install
- 1 custom mod completed
- 3 graphics designed
- 1 article written
- Governance charter thought about and subsequently ignored

Not as productive as I'd like, but overall not too bad I guess. Productively comes to a screeching halt after lunch, however, for then begins 4 hours of meetings where I'm required to pretend I give a shit about what's being said. Blargh.

Graphics design? Articles to write? Charters to review? Jeepers.

We should trade jobs. Today I've spent the morning trying to put in a little bit of shiny javascript that client ops wants. Now I'm going to change gears and put together the next piece of the automated build/deploy tool I've been working on. And then maybe I'll go in and refactor some more PHP so I can document the codebase without sounding like an utter nut case.
By the way, I'm actually a technical writer.

Thursdays are usually good for me: no meetings at all. I get things done on Thursdays. Tomorrow, though, I have exactly one hour - 10 to 11 - where I'm not in a meeting.
Fortunately, the guy who has me in from 11-1 is also a devotee of the Best Food Truck Ever and has a company credit card.

Working on overcoming a severe case of strep. It's been ages since I've been to a doctor - let alone picked up prescription pills. What a delightfully annoying experience.

I somehow managed to catch my finger in the zipper of my jeans over the weekend... ripped a chunk of flesh off the side of the first joint on my left index finger. So, I'm nursing a boo-boo. It keeps bleeding. And it hurts. And I'm almost out of Band-Aids. :(
