Today's Bridge: Some of the most awkward auctions ever, which says something for the hands involved, since Mike was my partner. Let me tell you about them.Collapse )

Today's Work: We went to the lab for some testing, only to discover that the hardware still didn't work. Big surprise. We found a few problems in our code anyway, though, so we spent the rest of the day fixing those. There's also a bigger problem that may have contributed to some of the other problems that have been written up, but it's difficult to say for sure, and what we saw was exactly the opposite of the known problem.

Today's Commute: Frozen roads, which had my anti-lock brakes working so hard during one stop that I could feel the brake pushing back against my foot. The car slid while I was driving around the Taco Bell driveway, and when I left the restaurant, after nearly slipping while trying to get back in the car, I noticed it pulling way to the left as I tried to steer. I began to worry that I'd somehow broken the steering system, and would be stranded half a mile from home, but I finally gave up trying to wrestle the car normally and just turned the wheel way to the right - and it straightened out and handled just fine. I'd left the wheel turned a full revolution to the left. I got honked at several times, particularly in town, but after having to slow down for a deer and lots of slow traffic, I wasn't going any faster than I had to, particularly when starting to move from a full stop. The ice isn't expected to be gone by tomorrow, and I've got meetings, but I don't think it'll be a big deal if I miss the morning one... I'm an alternate anyway.

Yes, I'm THAT Nidoking. Sometimes I write fanfiction... often I waste all my time playing video games and watching anime. But it's not a waste if I enjoy it, right? I can quote from a movie, video game, anime series, or British comedy apropos of just about any situation, and one of my main goals in life is to entertain people. (The other big one is amassing as much anime and manga as I can... see below for a progress report.) That's me in a nutshell. ("Help! I'm trapped in a nutshell! What a bloody great nutshell this is!")
