Weekend Update from Work

Here I am sitting at my desk at work on Saturday. The reason for this? I have a deadline coming up on Wednesday for my project. This sucker really has snuck up on me! It's sure quiet here on a Saturday afternoon!

In other news, I discovered last night that I forgot to fix the save article routine to handle mySQL on the Movieland Directory. I fixed that last night, and added the picture of E.J. Fleming sitting in Jean Harlow's car to the page about E.J. I think it looks great! What do you think?

ING Direct Savings

Opened up a savings account with ING Direct. Gets 4.5% interest! I've been wanting to do this for quite some time. Well, there are a couple little things left to do on it, but I'm moving forward to some extent on working with my finances.

Movieland Directory Performance

Well, since converting to mySQL for the Movieland Directory, the site has been much better behaved and generally providing zippier performance than before. That is a good thing!

Movieland Directory now using mySQL

Just wanted to mention that Friday night I got the Movieland Directory website weaned off of Microsoft Access and it is now using mySQL! Hopefully this will eliminate some of the errors we were getting. I did a bit of learning some of the particulars of mySQL's syntax.


Doin' Pretty Good Considering...

Last night I woke up and had a full-blown panic-attack. It's been awhile since I had one of those. I had no drugs like Valium on hand. It was a miserable night. My wife suggested taking a "Restful Night" pill (a Dr. Whitaker sleep aid). I avoided doing this for awhile due to the fact that it was so far into the night. But finally my misery was just too great. I took one and was finally able to get to sleep (around 4 in the morning). I slept in a bit later than usual. I don't feel perfect. But I did make it to work.
