Today's Work: I got in pretty late thanks to the window repair job, so it wasn't until the afternoon that I really got a chance to get back to what I've been working on. I still can't make the C++ and C# parts of the program work together properly, so I think my next step is to forget generating a key at runtime and just use a specific key. If I can make the two programs work together that way, then I can worry about the next step. If I can't, then at least I'll have a better idea what I'm doing wrong.
My pillow still isn't quite dry, but I'm going to try leaving the pillowcase off and putting it on a towel draped over a foam wedge. At least that should minimize how much bedding gets soaked overnight while I wait for the water to drain out. I tried sleeping without any pillow at all last night, and it wasn't very good. I'm almost two weeks into the reduced dosage of the anti-depressant, and I don't think it's having any effect.
