Well, that was markedly less frustrating. Got the next few boxes on the map worked out, though I haven't figured out an elegant (and efficient) way to make the hierarchy update. I'm actually considering using a single query for each node in the hierarchy so that the group-watcher will reload its own children every X ...
So, for the past 8 hours I've been debugging an error that just makes no sense. I commit changes to a record to the database (using the background thread, as required by twisted), and the record isn't committed a few seconds later. Ages spent assuring that the commit actually occurs, that a refresh is done ...
- I'm told someone reads this blog!
- Also, got a commitment from Shiva and Lisa to go hiking with the Bruce Trail club (and me) sometime in July.
- Made a nice curry, though it was far milder than I'd intended.
- Watched the season finales of Smallville and Enterprise. Think I'll just stop watching Enterprise. Smallville was ...
Spent all of yesterday (after the visit to Tony's) working on the randomised "ping" scanner. Something weird is causing the whole process to be incredibly slow, and I'm beginning to think it's the creation and destruction of database connections in the thread-pool-managed-threads.
Conversation at the pool-hall afterward was quite animated, particularly the rather long discussion of politics, philosophy and whether humans have a future. Have a meeting at 11am tomorrow with Tony, so should head off to bed ASAP.
The presentation is available, as is the small bit of sample code written explicitly for the presentation.
The silly UPS didn't catch the power outage, and somehow the file on disk got corrupted, so the presentation is just plain gone. This is *really* frustrating, I was working on the second-to-last slide already. Now I have to re-start from the beginning with less than 3 hours to complete it! Why doesn't OpenOffice automatically ...
Fortune favours the bold they say
but where does Love grant her favour?
The shallow, the callow, the young
and, or so it seems to me, the dumb.
Reminds me of this thought that has been troubling me over the last few years (on and off)...
May not even be litterally "now", for that matter. I'm not really exhausted, but I could certainly sleep now. Question is whether I can get any useful amount of work done in the hour or so before I really should sleep (pause in here)... I think the sandman will win this argument.
Not particularly satisfied ...!-->!-->
Slow going on the Twisted tutorial. Mostly because there's far too much to say. There's over 25 pages already and I've only just started with the actual Twisted material (the earlier part being discussion of comparable approaches). I've got 15 minutes, so should have approximately 30 pages total... going to be a lot of editing ...
