yati: A prinny (from the video game Phantom Brave) floating in the water. (we'll go with the river's flow)
This hasn't been a very good week.

I've had a persistent sore throat that doesn't seem to want to go away no matter what I do, and it makes me feel as if I'm about to come down with a flu. Ergh. No amount of gargling or throat lozenges is doing the trick -- this might mean a visit to the clinic. :(

I've been coming home from work feeling tired and out of sorts, and I've been getting nothing done the last week. Lack of motivation: check. It's been so bad that I'm not even doing the simple things that can be done in minutes, like generating the diff for a patch for bug 1886. (It's already done -- the work is all there. I just need to generate the patch again because of, uh, I'm not entirely sure what happened, probably some Unfortunate Event between ftp-ing it over and uploading it to Bugzilla. Alas.)

work stuff, end of year appraisals )


Reading-wise: I've finished Stephen Hunt's The Court of the Air, which I didn't like very much. It's the first book in a series. This is rather unfortunate, because I was recommended the second book in the series, The Kingdom Beyond the Waves, and I thought I might as well start from the beginning. I'll try post a longer write-up for it later.

Kind of hit a snag in reading Dorothy Dunnett's Gemini -- it's sitting on my desk waiting for me to pick it up again.

Nanowrimo: as predicted, it is going nowhere. (For the curious, the total wordcount is now 0. If it was possible for it to be a negative number, it would be one.)

Poor Mercurial. It got a (virtual) shoe thrown at it in a fit of frustration while I was trying to generate a patch. thwarted by version control! )

Also in this week: first-times in a couple of things!

1. I ordered books online for the first time! hooray for free shipping! )

2. I submitted my first Dreamwidth patch! hooray for new layouts! )

That's it!

Well. At least I know I still can find my way in these SSH/telnet sessions.

It's all thanks to [livejournal.com profile] nestrez who drilled most of what I know into my head when I started my Old Job years ago. To be perfectly honest, I wasn't really qualified to do what I was doing, but she was patient enough and I made mistakes enough to learn things (almost killed a server dead once, omg).

Hey look I still remember how to grep stuff!

. . . Oh god I've forgotten how you quit Vim.

Oh. It's :q. Brilliant. Seems like my memory still works.

If I don't return, assume I've been sucked in by code.
