Roadkill

Damn, It's Hot

It was 97° at lunch today, and it was still 91 in the shade when I got home. It was 88 inside the house, so I hid out in the cool of the basement until the a/c cooled down the back room a bit. No bike ride. Too damned hot.

Now that the a/c has done it's job, I'm typing this from the back room on my laptop, which is connected to the router with a very long patch cord. I've actually wired a dataport in this room, but I've never connected the other end of the cable to the router. I should do that this weekend. It'll be cool in the basement. Damn, I feel like such a wuss complaining about the heat so much...

Spent the day building an Access application to track quality system documents. As usual, I spent way too much time trying to get Access to do simple things, and failing to get the syntax right. The documentation sucks so badly (and is even wrong in some instances), and the 'how-to' books all seem contain only the simplest stuff. Feh. Still, I got most of the application up and running the way I want it to, with only one more module to go, so yay me.

Time to go to sleep.
