Raymond is living with us now, temporarily. He arrived Friday evening via the train, and we spent the weekend finishing the cleanup project on the spare bedroom, including buying a new heavy duty air filter, since he’s allergic to cats.
I spent a lot of the weekend playing the Sims 2, which was fun, but I think I’ve gotten it out of my system for now.
I’ve come up with a new creativity experiment. Kevin says I should think of them as experiments, not as past failures or failures in the making. I’m dubious, but hey. It involves writing more PHP, woot. And using MySQL. I spent a while last night attempting to set up MySQL and I felt so ashamed, ’cause I can barely crank out even the most basic database commands (other than queries) like creating and populating a DB without using some kind of front end. And yet I’m a professional DBA.
But Kevin helped me install and set up phpAdmin, so now I can ignore my lack of competency with the command line and use a functional interface instead.
