Less is More :(

The majority of work I do, as a programmer who wears a shirt and tie, involves databases. And I try to keep things nice and simple when working with databases. What I mean by simple is, extra tables in a database is fine, even triple the “minimum number” (whatever that is), if they all mostly follow some pattern. Constructing a database schema is then a simple application of the rules devised when designing the pattern, and means there’s not much to think about or have go wrong.

Los Allergies

The problem with blogs is that I always have little or no time to write. During this trip I’ve been trying to squeeze in the time, but until now it’s been at the very end of the day when I’d rather be sleeping. This time I’m trying to do it after breakfast. Now I have a new problem: doing bloggable stuff while I’m trying to blog! So, backtrack. Monday kicked off in traditional Secret Lab style (coffeetime); this time, we tried Peet’s.

End of WWDC: Let's Party

So I have mehfforted on the blogging for the past couple of days; it started on Wednesday when I decided that I really didn’t have much to talk about (WWDC content being under a certain agreement whereby I can’t tell you the content) so since that took up most of each day, it seemed worthless to post about it. Now it is Sunday night, so I have plenty of content I can tell you about. (This is also the post I am “treating myself to” for successfully upgrading WordPress manually.)
