12:45 am - Even more CAKE!

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

Well, the refactoring is complete. The code is easier to extend, and hopefully easier to understand, though there is a bit of magic that happens, it's white magic, really. :-)

And, this time, I went to Aurafice to do it. They had a DJ playing very strange music. He was mixing in soundtracks. I talked to people while I was working. I opened up my laptop and showed it off to people (well, one person). I offered to fix their wireless network, since I knew what was wrong with it. I felt much better than I did yesterday.

I bought my laptop for a reason. I need to go use it in public so I can meet people and not be bored.

Angel food? Black Forest?


It is good to hear your CAKE project is coming along well. How is everything going at work? How are things going for you today in general?

Re: Angel food? Black Forest?


You want to hear about other parts of my life in my journal?! *sigh* You'd think this was some sort of online diary or something. :-)

At work, I'm wrapping up this small project I've taken way longer than I ought to have to complete, and made more complicated than it needed to be. It also looks like I have a bunch of interesting things to do coming up.

In general, well, the highpoint was finishing the CAKE thing. :-) Other than that, it was "Get up, eat something, read email, walk to work, get some coffee, sit at desk, do stuff for my project (mostly learning how to do things actually, since my previous project didn't give me very wide exposure to things at Amazon), go to a meeting, go home, do some laundry, and then go out to Aurafice, come home rather latish, go to bed, read a bit, then fall asleep).".

I guess I should let work occupy more of my consciousness. I've been tending to forget about work things after I leave work. I also tend not to write things down, so this has made it so that I've totally lost track of things I shouldn't.

I think you just have to be careful that you don't get so involved in what you are doing on your computer that you get that "I'm busy, fuck off" look about you. =D

This happens when I'm reading sometimes and I actually wouldn't mind some interruption. Then again, sometimes I might be at a cafe or someplace just because I want to read or work in a place that has more atmosphere than my living room. I think that look of utter concentration can be offputting rather than welcoming, so I'm interesting in possibly chatting, I'll make an effort to look up and around a lot.

Yeah, I know. :-) Looking up and around a lot is how I managed to get into a conversation with that one person. :-)

I actually find that easier when doing programming than if I were reading. Books have a tendency to suck me in and make me forget about the world around. The tasks in programming are often broken up by periods of thought about what I'm going to do next.

Now, chatting online has a much greater tendency to make me inacessible to those around me. :-)
