Hey, is that the weekend on the horizon, Admiral Columbus?
Last night I drove phoenixalpha and Cowzilla to the registration meeting, where all bore witness to the awesomeness that is piman's glorious new Registration Database. It still needs a couple of minor tweaks, but is about 500% better than I was expecting and truly shiny besides. So, big ups to piman and to danae who picked him to build it. Not so big ups to danae's friend who reconfigured her laptop so it could connect to his Highly Secure Network and forgot to unconfigure it so it could talk to wifi networks in the rest of the universe, which made it useless for the meeting since the Happy Shiny Database is on piman's server and you have to be able to get onto the Internets to use it. All we need now is some sustained thrashing on the forms, of which there are still many many hundreds to be entered, and more in the pipeline. Thrash, my pretties, thrash! ^_^
Woke up this morning to discover that somewhere between hoovering the hosts file, running AdAware, and installing the Latest Greatest Patented Malware Exciser from Chairman Bill, the Deskpro is back to its former efficient self, with Firefox smoothly opening to My Yahoo and zooming to Google without getting all hung up and timing out. Haven't checked Cowzilla yet; got home around 10:30 PM last night and went to bed about 45 minutes later without setting up ye studly laptop. I have the feeling that it, too, will be okay when I fire it up tonight.
Tonight, more expelling of garbage into the Outer Darkness; tomorrow night, the second bout with Technology in the Classroom. Friday night classes. Ugh. At least I can look forward to HALO on Saturday. w00t!
