I need to remember to fuel up tomorrow morning as well.

Happy birthday to kestrel127 tomorrow. I hope it's a good day for you, because I don't expect I'll enjoy mine much. I could be wrong, though. I hope I am.

Thunderstorms this morning, more tomorrow, and I'm not feeling much better than I was before, although I think my hunger sense is recovering. It's hard to tell... I get a bit hungry, but I'm only eating bread and ramen, so I feel like I should be starving by now. The worst part is that, because I didn't want to eat anything more substantial than the toast I'd brought, I didn't join the rest of the group for lunch. But the meeting itself was very productive. The experts were impressed with what we had, which was expected - most of their list of design considerations that they go over with their customers are things that we already knew from our first release. We still learned a few very helpful things, and we've got advocates for sense when it comes to arguing down the safety team when they expect us to go way overboard. Safety, yes. Stuff that isn't any safer than something much simpler, no. Then we've got another problem that's been around for a while, but the safety team keeps raising and lowering the severity rating. There's a suggested mitigation that sounds really easy, but it's more complicated than most people would probably imagine. That's the case with most software, though... nobody ever understands how complex (or how simple, in some cases) a problem really is.
