Got my Mazda in the easy park-it at the rock and roll supermarket
I have to tell you about lunch today. We ate at On The Border, and The Engineer had a salad he liked best of any of our meals yet. It was the steak fajita salad. I can just picture the On The Border chefs getting together and saying "The salad's pretty good, it's got sour cream and guacamole, but what would make it perfect? I know - let's grill up some steak and some fried onions and put them on top!"

Practical Crypto arrived. So I've got new bedside reading, instead of Ilium.

The Kinko's at 11th and Delaware doesn't stay open past 10 pm on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. They're a block from the University of Tulsa - I guess they cater to the student crowd working late nights on their papers. So I'm at a different Kinko's tonight, down at 61st and Memorial. It's a larger location, and they're still working on installing more access points than the other one. It's not as relentlessly air-conditioned as the T.U. location, so I don't have to huddle at my laptop with a blanket wrapped around me. I like bringing a blanket from home on these trips. This time I brought The Serape of Love; it's a friendly, bright cheerful thing to have with me in the hotel room and also in that frigid Kinko's.

So I've been here for hours - my seat's getting sore from sitting in this chair - but I'm determined to get all of the Hazel's Picture Gallery pages generated from the picture database, and to have them look essentially the same as they did before the regen. A few rough edges to smooth over, but I really want to get this part done tonight if I can...

Rough plan for Tulsa Trip #6: June 6-19, or a subset thereof. (Traveling on weekends, if possible, to maximize workdays in Tulsa.)

I see a clinic full of cynics Who want to twist the people's wrist
All 20,518 pictures in "Hazel's Picture Gallery" have been cataloged in my new database. If you have a favorite picture, you should now be able to type in the picture number and bring up just that photo.

Next step: taking a batch of new photos, and putting their info directly into the database, then generating their display pages from that... Yes, that means I'm finally going to start uploading new content to the Picture Gallery. Not right now, though, I'm going to get some sleep first.

Current Mood: accomplished
Current Music: Queen - "I'm Going Slightly Mad"
