    Posted 28 Aug 2015

    Today I am putting off what I will end up doing next week, which is going through and fixing many problems with the system the other developer who just quit wrote. I've already got a list of 9 and now I just found some "goto" statements in his PHP code, in between some functionality he broke completely.

    Currently tracking down all files I have touched so a new feature can be pushed. I really should start keeping track as I go, I just never think about it as I am working on them.

    Use something like git, makes it much easier.

    Reached a really boring part of the project i'm working on, so very little progress is being made, as it's so easy to let myself get distracted. Which of course just makes the boring part take even longer and make me even more bored.

    8:45 - Arrive at work and unlock PC (I don't turn it off until Friday)
    8:45 - 9:00 - Check work & personal emails. Check news website. Check football forum.
    9:00 - Continue with whatever I was doing the previous day, which at the moment is generally either a) re-creating from scratch our largest and most complex system, because lolz, B) general admin stuff, such as setting up users, courses, enrolments, etc... c) trying to get Stash and JIRA to work how I want them to do on our test server, so we can use them
    9:45 - Be utterly bored and go and get a can of diet coke and possibly something unhealthy to eat for breakfast
    10:00 - 2-3 minute break to check news and very important football-related things
    10:05 - 12:00 - Get back to work, with occasional short breaks as outlined above
    12:00 - LUNCH - Probably go and buy a Subway or something, then browse stupid websites like Facebook and Buzzfeed. Maybe watch an episode of Parks and Recreation if I can be bothered.
    13:00 - Begrudgingly return to work
    13:10 - Check websites such as DIC, Stackoverflow, etc... to make it look like I'm checking work-related websites
    13:15 - Back to work, as per "10:05"
    15:00 - Co-worker comes in and we discuss important matters such as cars, holidays, films, buzzfeed quizzes, etc...
    16:00 - Co-worker leaves
    16:01 - Attempt to get some work done, but mostly browse the internet
    16:30 - Tell myself there's only 30 minutes left so I can't really get anything done anyway, so take a short break
    16:45 - Try to do something small, so at least I did a bit of work and there is at least a new feature or a bug fix or something

    I'm working on a complete rewrite of a grade tracking system (mostly used in the FE sector), that was developed by myself and another person over the course of a few years. It became an unwieldy mess, so I've started the whole thing again from the beginning, to try and make it much easier to manage and update.

    I never check the comments on my profile. What thread of mine broke the forum? :)
