TMW you've done the less-fun parts of a script and all that remains are the horrible parts. And testing. No, there were no fun parts. RMXP. Apr 15, 2018

        Horrible parts done. Now it's just copious testing. But I think, for now, it'll be dinner & bed, as dinner & testing may reveal bugs that will require rework and further testing, and I'm tired just thinking about it.

        I took it for a spin in an Aveyond game and it worked nicely. I discovered I'd made an oversight - nothing that can't be fixed with a dozen lines of code. That'll be this evening's task.

      Got a promotion at work over 2 months ago. STILL not allowed to tell anyone about it or use my new title. Lot of frustration this week :(

        They started a massive restructure of the department about 18 months ago, and ALL promotions were put on hold for 2 years. Bummer for those who were close to getting one. So until all of those that had been pending were approved and notified, nobody could say anything.

      TFW your supervisor is worried your taking a day off will leave us light-on, so you withdraw your request. Then they take the same day off.

        M: I want to go overseas in June, so can you change your June leave to another date?
        S: ok.
        (later)
        S: Has anyone booked leave at Christmas time yet?
        M: Not yet.
        S: I'll have the 24th off. Let me know if anyone else wants that date.
        M: It's okay, you got in first, so you will have that date off.

        ...
        I got in first those other times, too. And now this.

        That's unpleasant to say the least. I suppose your only option is to be the last one to choose the date, so someone else will be bumped off for you :headshake:

        When he asked for everyone's dates, I said I would wait for everyone else to choose theirs, and then I'd choose around them. But nobody else submitted anything. So I "got in first" because everyone else was slack, then had to change them anyway. Won't happen next year!

        The weather does, but the soil doesn't :( It's quite heavy clay here, and when we planted them, everything suffered. So we had to dig them all up and put back in pots. Hopefully this year we'll build raised beds and plant them all out again - they're getting a bit crowded now!

        Another problem with meds is that you can wake up and still feel drowsy and unable to focus, until it wears off.
        Perhaps if you alter a bit your night routine, your mind will stop repeating it. And make sure the temperature isn't too warm in your room.

        I used zzzquil when that happened. A half doze usually just makes you drowsy when you take it, but you can still be woken up if someone really needs you.

        If I drink too much fluid before bed, I wake up and have to use the rest room and don't go back to sleep.. terrible. I sometimes go to bed thirsty just so I won't wake up. MEOW. terrible. I suppose it's just part of being a silly grey tabby cat. Meow.

        Aw, I know the feeling! I spent this weekend sick, so it was like it wasn't a weekend at all... Dishes aren't done, projects aren't worked on, Humble Bundle purchased but only stared vacantly at (although the guy and I tuned into the Bob Ross twitch stream for a couple episodes; that was neat). All I accomplished this weekend was, really, was sleep.

        but really, do what you can, don't exert yourself, if you do, you'll never get anything done, and we don't want that to be a result. so take your time, do the most important things, and if time allows it do the other if you have the energy to...and know it can always be done another day.

        we learned about pH and WHY it affects plants, how to test soil structure and how to change it, soil mixes, potting mixes, seed raising and propagating mixes, what are the good ones and what are the bad ones and why, what the Australian standards mean for potting mixes and how clever companies are at marketing when their products don't meet the standards.

        And we planted up a bed for a side-by-side comparison of a compost that meets the standards and one that doesn't, but has a label and a price tag that implies it's much better. We'll keep an eye on those over the next few months to see how they perform.

        Well, I usually play all the game to make the bug list then correct them; After that, play it all again, because corrections also make new hidden bugs. This goes on until I don't have to fix anything. It usually takes 3 or 4 runs.

        really? It's a one-line change to the code. I've seen people ask about it before, and after I realised how simple it was, I thought for sure someone's already posted it in response to one of those requests. I'll do it when I get home, or over the weekend - when I remember :)

        It was delivered to a house around the corner, because the driver thought the 10 looked like a 16. We will catch up with them when they're home and see if they still have it, or if they've reposted it. I just hope they don't 'return to sender'
