More from Ron’s software page – this one a “real”
programmers test. The “Darin” referenced here I believe is my
coworker Darin, the same guy with whom I am now partnered. The two of
us are the two most process oriented guys, so it kind of stands to
reason. He’s the guy who first pointed me to Ron’s site, which is what
makes me think that is him.
We are going around and around at work on software process and
configuration management issues. This stuff is not hard to figure out
– most software process is just common sense coupled with a little bit
of discipline. Here is a guy talking
about these issues. I agree with every syllable of this.
Leaving the house in a few minutes to go give blood. Since last
September, I’ve been giving regularly every eight weeks like
clockwork. After I come home, I’ll make my next appointment. You can
sign up via their web page.
The Susi French Connection show was a lot of fun. I talked to Susan
of Gentle Readers and bought their two CDs that I don’t already
have. She was really sweet. I also talked with Sonia Tetlow and gave
her some WREK bumper stickers. I e-mailed her a long time ago and
had her send her CDs there and they programmed both of them. Very
briefly talked with Paul Melancon too. The show itself consisted of
covers of 70’s songs, originally chosen for their cheeze
factor. However, they couldn’t stick to that so they kept “lapsing”
into good songs. They played “She’s a Lady”, “It never Rains in
Southern California”, “Night Fever”, “More More More” and a lot of
stuff like that. However, they played Joni Mitchell’s “Help Me”,
Badfinger’s “Day by Day”, Blondie’s “Heart of Glass”, and finished
with two from Abba, “Knowing me Knowing you” and “Waterloo”, both
songs I’m not ashamed to admit knowing the words to nor ashamed to
sing along as loudly as I could. “Waterloo, couldn’t escape if I
wanted to, la la la la la la.” I love it. Paul came up and sang on
“Someone Saved My Life Tonight.” Good fun, taking the edge
off of a truly shitty week.
