I got a lot done, surprisingly.
Tomorrow. Search function. (Keywords only, this isn't going to be rocket science or anything.) Implement the authentication (right now, I have the idea that having two ids -- one that's pure session and one that's combined session/authentication -- would produce those effects where the system can verify both separately...but it sounds like more than I can manage before tomorrow's over). If I have to, I'll skip one or the other (probably the search, seeing as how authentication would be more important for a dinky little news site).
I start training for my job Monday. It's a job job, something to pay bills with, but it's also at a place that I really liked in some ways (A/C, low-pressure) and didn't in others (poorly managed at times). Well, that's not entirely true, either. It's in the same building, and it's roughly the same work, but it's a different company now.
If nothing else, it'll be a way to pay bills until I can snag an internship this fall -- with the bonus that I can continue to code in my spare time.
