Oops and Recovery

I don't have much to report about this last week. I have a big deadline coming up on Wednesday that's kept me fairly nose to the grindstone. I've been making good progress, though, and I'm reasonably confident that I'll be able to hit it. Even despite, in my rush to pack everything up to head home on Thursday evening, mistyping a command and accidentally deleting all that day's work.

Yeah, that sucked. The bright side of it is that the majority of the effort that I'd put in that day was figuring out how to solve a bunch of problems, and that was all still floating around in my brain, so once I got over the emotional shock, I was able to get almost all the code I'd written reconstructed by the end of the bus ride home.

Still, I was way too out of spoons to even think about making dinner that night, so we went out and met Mel at Smashburger instead. That was nice.

Yesterday I did a whole bunch of shopping (POM for ramen and miso, ARC for some new shirts and a couple books, Sprouts for veggies and Aussie-style black licorice, Petco for kitty litter, and King Stooper's for assorted other groceried) -- kinda wore myself out a little more than I expected -- and then a little bit of prepping for Star Wars. Thankfully there wasn't too much, since I had material left over from last time and was otherwise practicing ad-libbing adventures as we move on to what we're calling "Disk 2 content" and go into more of a sandbox mode with the campaign.

Today I have done very little, and am feeling somewhat recovered. Jerry and I played a little Sentinels of the Multiverse, and otherwise I punted on trying to accomplish anything resembling productivity.
