Bachelor for a Week - Day 5 - Almost Over

PvP

Keep in mind that the above comic has to deal with the Ren. Fair(e). I thought it was appropriate since I'm watching Voyager and active in the SCA.

Anyway, this week is over and I've defiantly surpassed 40 hours this week. The server says I logged on this morning at 9:57, so up to now, I've been working about 7.5 hours. Add that to my current work load, and I've worked 42.5 hours. Not bad for a week of Bachelor-ism.

Keat comes home tomorrow (YAY) and my Bachelor-ism will be over. I can't say it's been all great. The majority of the week has been: get up, go to work, come home, watch some tv, go to bed (+10 points if you can get that reference). Literally, I've gotten up (usually around 9), arrived at work around 10-ish, worked all day, went home, watch a movie (and feed the kitties), and went to bed. That was my week in a nutshell.

ANYWAY, I worked on the WHCC page a lot today, and should have that up by Monday as promised. I also worked on the Shadow Dev Beta site again, and things are coming along nicely. I should be able to meet that September 1st deadline with no problems.

I had a meeting with WHCC early this morning to go over some documents, and had the cleaning lady come in after that. Let's just say that what she did (and her daughter) in 20 minutes would have taken me a whole day to do in the office. $15 for a thorough cleaning is well worth it. She even offered to dust and more, but I thought I'd better start off small since this is her first time. She will definitely be back in 2 weeks!


I'm going to call it quits early today and head home to take care of some of the chores that I was supposed to do over the week. I did a few of them, but I have a lot to go. Good thing I don't have any Lumbergs around!

Although I did watch Dinner for Schmucks last night. Some people may have thought it was bad, but once you accept that it is "Steve Carrell"-funny, then it makes more sense. Overall, with the amount of comedy, dirty-ness, follow-through storyline, and cast of actors (including Jeff Dunham), it was a really good movie.

I've also watched: Mortal Kombat Annihilation (crap), Star Trek Nemesis (ok, but I'm starting to like it better once I got past the "Data died" part), Star Trek Insurrection (eh...), and The Karate Kid (yes, the 1984 version - I finally saw it all the way through and it was pretty good).

I'm gonna go home and work now....wait, what? Oh well.

And just for kicks, here's another Star Trek related comic:

12 hour work day

PvP

To give you a good idea of the above comic, just imagine a Ren. Fair(e). Yes, I don't go to them, but the author of the comic did, and since Keat and I use long bows, I thought it would be nice.

Anyway, here's the lowdown on the 12 hour work day:

  • I came in to work a little after 10, to meet Tom and his mountain of business cards. When he came in for a quick sweep, I started on the Site Analysises of a few of the sites. A lot of them scored below 60%. Along the way, I thought I'd go ahead and score Shadow Dev's site, just to give a client the perspective. We are at a 90.1% (of course, this is with our current design - our beta design scores much higher). That was pretty much the extent of my day for that part

  • I kept watching Voyager. I'm on S6:E12. Not bad for a day of watching

  • I'm creating an analysis program to help me with the site analysises. So far, things are looking promising.

  • I go accepted into Forrst! A developer's social media network, if you know what I mean. The application process is extensive, and I almost forgot about it until I received an email saying I was accepted.

  • The book I am mentioned in officially shipped the edited copy today. I should get it in the mail in a week or so.

  • The kitties have been pretty spazzy the past 24 hours. I think Niko has seperation anxiety. He doesn't want me to go into a room without him, and when I'm home, he just loves to nuzzle.

  • Keat's not having a good time with her parents, as expected. I won't go into too many details since they might be reading this, but I will say that they peaked interest in Shadow Dev for the first time. The questions they asked this round were more in Keat's court, so she could answer them. Although when Keat's dad asks technical questions about the company, it seems like he knows what he is talking about although he doesn't have a grasp on the subject he's trying to prove he knows (for example: he thinks that every site has a Mobile application, and that the mobile application accesses a different database than the main site, and that creating a mobile application is easy to create - I mean, sure, if you are bilingual in PHP and Java, but if you aren't, creating an App is not as easy as it sounds). It would be like me asking him "What is the financial change of the Income Statement of your company for the first quarter of 2011, and what areas are affected by the change of command, and while you're at it, what is the maximum load bearing of the triangular struts used in the construction of the east wing of the Phoenix location, and why can't a company simply copy and paste the blueprints of one building to another in a different location of the country? (You get my drift)"

  • Had a discussion with a potential client today. I won't say much, but apparently we got to him too late. His current "Web Designer" got his hands full, and then his site got hacked by an SQL injection. So he signed a contract with Adobe and Capatan, and they're taking care of everything (I think).

  • As you may be able to tell, I discovered geekfeed this morning, and found a lot of good pictures. Here's one I couldn't pass up:
    Mythbusters go Boom!

    Lotta good stuff!

  • I also set up another Cron job to help with the optimization of tables. I thought I had one in the past, but I couldn't find it in the X amount of files I have. It won't be long now before the server can stand up on it's own and start demanding coffee!


That's it for my 12-hour day. Until tomorrow, and the rest of the week. G'Night!
