I work for a local High School district, as the Director of Technical Services. Not a huge coder, but try hard. I've been using open-source software for about 6 years, and am just starting to get back into coding, and am currently starting to work on more open-sourced projects. Currently attempting to write documentation for Debian(Debian tutorial, bah got deprecated, going to start on Admin guide, and Net guide with Trying to hack code. Current project:

been playing with sourceforge, very awesome stuff. One gets tired of building CVS servers after a while. It's pretty neat. have quotes up on CVS in sourceforge.


Been having fun at work again. still pretty political, but that;s what happens when your in an educational institution..
Less than 3 months till my wedding date, that's pretty scary, but I'm excited! the invitations got sent out yesterday!

well It's been a while since I've entered a diary entry. A lot has happened. I got a job offer in bermuda(they even flew me and Victoria out there, the money wasn't really there, and the job didn't seem really exciting. I turned them down.

Thought I might try out sourcefourge with my quotes mess, It's coming along quite horribly :P

Thinking about looking for a job in the Kingston/Ottawa area(ON, Canada). It would make my life with my fiance a whole bunch easier. The US Govt is about a huge pain in the butt, when it comes to things like this.

IRM 1.0 came out, found some of my code in it. That was kinda cool. I need to see about moving my existing code base into 1.0. That sounds like a chore. It might be easier to just re-code it.

Okies, I'm done for now. tho I'm sure more has happened.

Well. Coding on IRM some more. Got some more done with it, Need to work out an Authorization scheme. I know lots of other ppl have gone thru this, just not sure how to go about getting a good way to do this. I want to implement a way to say this guy can do these things, this guy can do these things, etc. and get it out without too many problems.

Viki wrote some great stuff the other day, I put it up on the about page for Quotes. She's great! I laughed my butt off for a long time :P

They are trying to get me to move to the new building tomorrow, I'm going to be a rebel, and stay here until they force me to go. I don't really want to move to the new building, and I really want to get IRM done first. I guess I should just move over, maybe next week :) It's just a lot of stupid work that doesn't do a whole lot for me. In fact I'm losing a phone, a machine or two, etc. I'm not gaining a whole lot. Not even more space, or my own office. Just losing stuff. Talk about a bad deal. At least I'll be close to Sandii and Robin again, they are Great ppl.

Went to the Doctor today and got my blood drawn, hopefully he doesn't come back and tell me I'm gonna die soon :P Hopefully it won't be anything major, been having problems with sugar. Me and Sugar aren't getting along very well, does wacky things to my head/body. Should know more next week.

Started coding on IRM again, wanted to test out some abstraction's on getting results out of MySQL, so I wrote Quotes System( It was kinda fun. I've since come up with bunches of ideas for it in the TODO file, but I'm sure it will be a while before I get around to coding on it anymore.

PHP is kinda fun to write, but I keep finding myself screwing up the syntax, cause I've been spoiled after writing in python for so long. I guess one of these days I might actually be able to code something decent.

It's still hard for me to code. I have to use a lot of brain power to come up with simple algorithm's, etc. But I kinda enjoy it. Which is scary, I've never used to enjoy coding.

Anyways today is bill paying and visiting the doctor day, hopefully I'll get some more on IRM done, I need to have it useable for next week(tuesday). we'll see I'm thinking it needs a re-write, but I'm not that energetic.

Worked on Software Adoption Procedures today, seems like most days are non-coding, non-geke days, and are becoming more and more political. Ahh well, it's a job, and it's fun for the most part :)

Haven't done a whole lot else. Hopefully can start working on IRM again soon.
