Day 502

Saturday | July 13th, 2013


I slept late, no surprise there. When I did get up, I skipped all the regular stops, food, bathroom, family, and went straight into TOEIC work. If it’s not trying to sort auto-chopping, it’s figuring out how to auto-start. Both things take time and expertise and a lot of guess work. What works on my set up: a version of Windows XP in an emulator, doesn’t always work the same on an actual lab computer.

It’s frustration at mid-point. The one thing that isn’t helping the most is the heat. It’s hotter than last year and the rainy season is more wishful thinking than cloud practice. My room is warmer in the winter for the exact reason it is making me insane now: too much computer equipment.
