Weeknote for 9/19/2021

Programming πŸ€” This week I’m trying out another Haskell intro book, Get Programming with Haskell by Will Kurt. Chapters 4 and 5 of Haskell Programming from First Principles slowed me way down, and the pace wasn’t going to work for … Continue reading

Weeknote for 5/16/2021

Housekeeping 😐 I’ve entered the messy phase of tidying. Marie Kondo says you need to purge before you organize, but really there’s some pre-purge organizing you have to do. You have to get all the items from the category you’re … Continue reading

Weeknote for 8/16/2020

Health πŸ€” My immune-suppressing prednisone level is low, but I’m still avoiding indoor crowds. This is mostly to avoid possibly delaying my ulcerative colitis treatments at the hospital, which would happen if I exposed myself to known or suspected cases … Continue reading

Weeknote for 3/29/2020

COVID-19 😐 This pandemic means different things to different people. Something I realized after the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami is that disasters are selective–the people living past the edge of the wave didn’t have their homes destroyed, and people inside … Continue reading

Update for 7/22/2018

Life maintenance Just kidding, I guess. I’m moving after all. At the end of July. A lot happened last week. My top choice of apartments wasn’t going to be ready till after my lease ended, so I was thinking I’d … Continue reading

A full week

This week has been rather busy!

Last weekend we finally switched to our new server at work. We got Exchange running and copied all our files over to the new machine, and I stayed up very late Sunday night finishing it. Since then I’ve been fixing things that got broken in the move.

On another front, one of our project managers has left, so now I am mostly managing one of his projects because I was pretty involved in it anyway, preparing the manuscripts for typesetting. So that is challenging, but it’s also kind of fun, coordinating all those pieces, keeping people informed. πŸ™‚ But don’t tell my bosses that; they’ll give me more. o.o;;

The guy they’re bringing in to replace him is interesting. He’s a marketing consultant and also a pastor, and he has many ideas for helping us brand our company and take ourselves in new directions. I was a little nervous at first because I didn’t know how it would all affect my job, and more specifically my pet projects, but I’ve relaxed since then. I’m glad he’s here.

At home I’ve been defining my next project (yes, another one)—going to various libraries, checking out books, reading bits of them, writing. I thought I had the topic down and was going to blog about it, but then my ideas for it expanded. But now they’ve narrowed again, so I will write about it soon. Continue reading
