Myriad things.

Over-worked programmers are not a lot to piss off. I just got out of a meeting where our lead programmer near ate the face of the a team lead. The TL was asking about displays of certain data. The programmer interpreted it as, "I want you to fix this," and freaked out. Anger. Near tears. Flabberghastion. Insanity. And there's little ole' me being sad that I could defuse the situation because I had no idea what this team lead was doing, since I'm completely un familiar with her application. :( Not fun times. However, I'm pleased to say that the problems were stemming from the team lead treating our app's users like they were her app's user. Her users would be confused by if they were using our app.... which they won't be. ever. Kinda silly. Also, you shouldn't have meetings like this two weeks from a deadline. People are touchy.

I wish I could have been more help. I need more experience with our customers. i also need to convince my team lead to (finally) let me learn this other app. I've been trying to since I started.

I must go buy brown shoes and (potentially) better khaki's after my workout. My brown shoes are hideous in so far as they contain more black than brown. They squeak and are still stained from a trip to Utah. I'll not be going to the Epic anniversary dinner making such a fashion faux pas as to wear black, dirt stained, shoes with light colored slacks. I should also find nice brown socks of some sort, but socks are less important. So long as they aren't black or blue, I'm good. Maybe a nifty pattern too....

Should probably find some undershirts as well. But those are a dime a dozen.

I have recently discovered Beast Wars, one of my all-time favorite cartoons, is now on DVD and it's inexpensive. I'm pleased. Best transformers show spin off ever. I like it better than the original transformers cartoon.

Much better than those bastard Go-bots too. I mean, come on! Go-Bots sunk so lows as to have rock robots. Robots that turn into things are great, but robots that turn into rocks?
