Geeky Bullets:

  • Finally found my boo boo in the section of L7’s SQL code that has had me scratching my head for literally months – dropdown menu for the comic now lists all of our strips and also stays centered on whichever strip is being displayed at the time! Added a second set of navigation links above the comic to make it easier to search through the archives.
  • Although there’s still a ways to go, I also made tremendous advances (at least for me) in the dev upgrades for Just Laugh’s Joke Database – nothing viewable online at this point, but the first steps for the new site-wide management system are now behind me and it shouldbe just a matter of getting organized at this point.
  • Also along dev lines, not sure exactly where it stemmed from, but the head-clearing walk mentioned below somehow did wonders for getting me motivated once again about the massive project that I’m gearing up for with bringing Just Laugh back. So much potential – now to see if “two years of growing up”– as the last two years of my life have been referred to – can have an impact on this venture as well…
  • Watched The Fantastic Four this evening – it only had about ten worthwhile minutes in it, as I’d suspected. Kind of like The Punisher, I suppose, but really, it’s tough to follow in Spider-Man’s footsteps anyways.Non-Geeky Bullets:
    • Because I knew that whatever I watched on pay-per-view this evening would be crap (it was between The Fantastic Four and War of the Worlds), last night I watched Mallrats on DVD and those were good times. “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned for Sega…”
  • I worked out both Saturday and Sunday, and I really think that it’s starting to do some good. I’ve had increasingly bad neck / shoulder cramps ever since I drove trucks up in Michigan and I’m always saying that I should start going to a chiropractor, but this weekend I actually found myself feeling betterafter doing my time on the old elliptical. The last machine I used was lower body only, whereas this one works the upper body, too, so my best guess would be that I’m just finally stretching out those muscles that got beat on so much up north! Now if I could just beat the 215 mark…
  • Took a little break in between all of the geek stuffabove to take a walk around the neighborhood because I realized that I’ve never really done it since I moved here. I used to do it all the time back at the old apartment on the other side of town when I needed to clear my head, but I guess I’ve just never taken the time here. It was pretty dark, so I didn’t really get to see much, but relaxing nonetheless. Will try to do some more exploring to wind down tomorrow evening, perhaps…
  • I also picked up the hooks for my balcony so that I can hang some plant baskets from the ceiling – my little relaxation area is really starting to come together out there! It’s tough, though, because I’ve got the new table & chairs picked out from Lowe’s that I want and they’ll go perfectly with everything else that has been done … but I’ve already spent so much in the past couple of months and I reallyneed to curb my spending for a while. It’s just that I hate to fix up everything else, then be left with an ugly ass, half rotted table as the center piece … I shouldn’t do it, but we’ll see… :PSo much to do tomorrow, but at least I feel like I got some decent stuff accomplished again this weekend. So far my to-do list is about three or four items long, so it shouldn’t take too much motivation to press on and get them done before Surface so that I can still get to bed at a decent time. Hasta luego…

    Get to bed at a decent time? What language are you speaking? My human brain does not understand this concept.

    What can I say? I’m an old, old man… 😛
