  • I started out the morning with debugging some test code in Komodo, I kept getting errors when using DBD::Mock, after biking from home to client location I just had a brief look (the debugging session was still active) - so I checked what version of DBD::Mock I had installed (1.34) and I noticed a newer version was available (1.37). I had a looked at the Changes file and there it was in 1.35 AutoCommit patch - I updated and it worked.

    After this I had a look at some cross-site scripting issues with FCKeditor, we set up the newest version (which according to the docs should support this), wrote some proto-javascript and it worked.

    Feeling somewhat invincible and the time was only 10:30, I moved on to running some scripts to build a test database for the application we are working on - everything worked.

    I executed the application, 'Access Denied', after several attempts with different variations and examination of another database I gave up - angry and disappointed I biked home to work on another project.

    I am sure it is a human error (me) I could just not figure it out and I guess I will nail it tomorrow, pointing to another database, simply felt like loosing.

    The annoying part was really that it ruined my focus.

    When people ask me whether working with computer programming is not boring, I always reply that this sort of job lets me visit the complete emotional spectrum and that in a single workday.

    There will be other D'ohs but again you found the solution, imagine working with something where solutions are not imminent...
