I’d like to think that I post more frequently when I am busier, but there are apparently limits to that. It would probably make for an interesting graph.
The past few weeks have been, to put it mildly, insane. No time for blog entries nor tweets. A lot of things are coming together at once, including the new Subway project (the old one is on hold), and the City’s staff augmentation RFP. The latter was critically important to my company and its employees so it took top priority until its deadline passed. I’ve been working extra-hard to get some technical issues ironed out for the Subway project, which we’re doing in Rails. I should have my head examined for taking on something like this, but it’s such an interesting opportunity that couldn’t be missed. Hopefully I can back off of it while my subcontractor carries it for the next few weeks, as my other night job has been suffering a bit. Oh ya, then there’s the day job, but this necessarily gets my normal work hours, except it seems I’m pulled away frequently for things like doctor’s appointments, physiotherapy, and this past Thursday, for my wife’s car accident.
Someone just ahead of her in the middle lane abruptly attempted a left turn directly in her path. She hit into the truck before being able to touch the brake pedal. The RAV4 was rendered inoperable and had to be towed away, and I left work to pick her up. I was also away Friday to help deal with the aftermath (police report, rental car (Pontiac G6: yuck!), and helping her out as she got quite stiff and sore. Plus the kids had minor surgery Thursday night so I had to tend to them as well. The other guy readily admitted responsibility so no problem there. We have no idea what will happen to the RAV4, but I doubt that it will be written off.
Anyway I am excited to be back hard on my Clerk’s work again. It’s not Rails work but it’s a lot better than Classic ASP.
