It's been annoying grubby work, that I'm sadely, rather well qualified for (one foot in development, one foot in UNIX sysadmin'ish stuff.).
The problem is now that damn thing wont work, and I don't have a clue as to why. I've been staring at it and poking at it and reviewing my work for three days, and getting nowhere. And that Does Not Look good when I have to spin "I'm still trying to fix it" in my weekly telecons to the PM, to my boss^2, and to the VP of SW Dev.
I had had to decline a couple of social invitations for Friday evening because I had thought that I was going to be in on an IPTV demo. But the demo got pushed off, but I had people looking over my shoulder "helping" with the SNMP thing instead, so that took me into early evening. Over 48 hours in the office this week.
I headed down to elfs & omahas for "Fish Friday". This time it was breaded salmon burgers, which turned out very yummy. Especially with the last minute substitution of fresh basil for lettuce. (Damn, I forget to take a bag of it with me.)
After a couple of rounds of Uno (played competeatively, but still not with the cutthroat glee that my family plays it), I took my leave, and followed up on an invitation to visit tonyawinter. I got to see some of the stuff she makes in her workshop, and how it gets made.
