And, based on my last journal entry, the C++ thing is sucking too.
On the upside, the beer-drinking thing seems to be going well
What can I say? I've been lax, and it's certainly not laziness. I've actually been quite busy.
My job as *nix System Admin is rocking along, and I find myself doing fewer and fewer Windows-related tasks. Mainly because we hired a Windows-type god, and also because everyone has figured out how powerful Perl is. I spend, on average, about 25 - 50% of each week coding something for someone. Combined with tweaking Apache, installing PHP-something-or-other, finally convincing management that we can run a fail-over sendmail system on a Linux box (rather than Solaris), and teaching Perl to the other systems programmers (weekly, sponsored by upper management), I've been a busy little Monger.
But wait! That's not all you get
I have a pretty cool MySQL MP3/Ogg set up. All of my CDs are ripped and catalogued in a MySQL database. I have a few command line scripts that allow me to play whatever I want. For example:
will play every MP3/Ogg file that is of the Type metal.
play -p='drowning pool'
will play every song by the Performer Drowning Pool. Etc., etc., etc.
My wife despises the command line. Her response was basically, "I just want to be able to point and click, and it play what I clicked on."
And thus was born the Music Control Center, my new little pet project. It's already grown beyond what I had anticipated, and keeps me quite busy. But, it's perl, it's Tk, and it's alot of fun.
And I guess that's all that really matters.
