What'ya got goin' on?

Had a review today. It is annoying, and very typical, that they pick up on a few trivial issues but neglect to mention all the good work, the hard work, and praise, that occurred during the period. Grrrr.

I have to import a bunch of products from the client's old site to the new site. Manually. :/
Later I'll be working on a plugin or two.

Web.. Microsoft's MVC.NET thing.. in theory being an editable grid to in place edit/update.. insert new.. remove rows.. etc... in theory all in one partial view of a larger view.. blah.. blah.. Can't go for a 'for paid' toolbox.. ultimately annoyed that a grid was offered out of the box in ASP.NET but not now.

hash tag - old man yells at clouds.

Last winter I rammed a proposal for a new permission system through the various levels of organizational consensus. Last spring I got the design approved.
Now I'm banging away at implementing it.

Slow progress, but it feels good to be getting rid of the approximately four distinct ways we used to have for determining whether a staffer could look at a page.

Fighting a server at work. Had to update the BIOS/BMC/CPLD (power management) and now I can't see the NVDIMMs on the system... they don't claim to fail initializing or anything... they just don't show up. Went in and changed BIOS settings to see if that will help, but now it is taking _forever_ to boot. Not sure how long I have been sitting here... but I am considering hard power cycling the node and going from there... assuming of course there won't be any negative fallout from that (which, considering everything else, there very well could be).

Sometimes version control sucks, like when trying to check in some changes to a big file that someone else refactored in a different branch. The merge tool might as well just respond with "LOL" if I'm going to have to do everything manually anyway.

Life...is...busy

Holy fucknuckers

New album on the way with MCRNR. I'm making the cover art for it, at some point - a mosaic.

New-ish album on the way with Their Accomplices. I'm currently mixing down the final versions. Here, check out our song about Yoga Pants. Sneak peek.

I say new-ish because we decided our previous recording is SHIT and did it all over again, and added a couple new songs. Once this is finished that's coming off bandcamp and this is going up in its place, and we're giving it away to anyone who bought the old stuff.

Let's see...oh and that's not even everything on that front. We're going on tour in October - Lexington KY, Clarksville TN, Statesboro GA, Tampa FL, Orlando FL, Brunswick GA, Nashville TN. Gonna be a good time.

Got nominated for a local award show as "best rock band" and "best new band"

And then I decided I'm making a game. I must have already dumped about 30 hours into it over the last 2 weeks - mostly coffee and burning the midnight oil. That's coming along nicely. Too early to really say anything about it other than vaguely that it's a sidescroller drawing on influence from Mega Man and Metroid.

And work. Have I mentioned I love my job? Almost a year since I took it and I'm still really enjoying it. I'm so, so, so glad I did. It's been a huge challenge, but I've grown SOOOO MUCH as a programmer, learned so much. The project I've been working on is now in testing and I'm working out the last of the kinks. My goal is to be fully in production by October, and I'm pretty on track for that.

Azathoth is still a bumbling idiot, but what can ya do?

Four-ish mile hike yesterday testing out my new trekking poles. Thank the good lord for bug spray. Wasn't good for mosquitoes, gnats, or a plague-level volume of grasshoppers. The poles worked damn well. Worth the investment.

Torrential rain today, four way stops everywhere with no one following protocol. I really just want to turn around and go home to build my lego set. Ugh.
