First up, the plague has visited our household. All 4 of us have it to some degree or another. The funny/cool part though, Kate seems the least affected. With her breathing issues in the past, we've either shipped her off to the grandparents or shipped ourselves off to the grandparents...if it's me, I'm usually just shipped downstairs. She's a tough little one and likes to kick hardship/illness/death in the balls whenever she can.
On the job front, nothing remarkable to speak of. Mr. Cunningham...while not getting/giving me a job, at least posted some helpful resources. Rumor also has it that he's weighing in at a svelte 219. I tried to compete with him for awhile, but as is my habit, went the other way again.
I currently have feeds from Indeed, Twitter, and Dice in Google Reader. I love it when the job search companies provide RSS capabilities.
I definitely like being at home. I like being around my family more. I know I have to pay the bills, but if I can swing it, I'm shooting for something closer. Forty minutes each way isn't terribly bad, but it's an hour and a half I could be doing something with my family.
I have revived a couple of personal projects though, 1 is the basic testing tool that will generate PL/SQL stubs. I'm not completely convinced of it, but it's a fun exercise. 2, fine-grained dependencies. OK, I can look in %_DEPENDENCIES and see that there is a dependency on TABLE_A, but what kind? Is it read-only (SELECT) or is it doing something (UPDATE/INSERT/DELETE). 3, I just came up with this the other day for some reason. I was told that a certain website had 10,000 pages. WTF? I'd like to build a little app that will find all the links within that website...if only to confirm that ridiculously high number.
