Punk: Officially Old

The Sex Pistols have been accepted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

That's it. Punk is officially old now.

Ohio

So, some of you may know that I was born in Ohio. Apparently we lived here, or close to it. I even have directions for how to get there from my house.

My sister and I are talking about driving out there one weekend. Should be fun.

Snow

We are getting out first snowfall today. When I first moved here I was fascinated by falling snow. I had never really seen it before. Now it's just a reminder of how cold it is.

do nothing

I ran into this in some code at work today:

		if ((($ordertype eq "N") and ($provisioning eq "PTP")) or
		($ordertype eq "M") and ($endmoving eq "A")) {
				# do nothing
		} else {
		...

I have no words for this.

30+ more years...

It's the most depressing thought, that I have 30+ more years until retirement. And then I'll be too old (assuming I live that long) to enjoy it.

The thought of wading through other people's code for 30 more years just kills me. I really need to do something about that.

Mental Anguish

Seriously, there is nothing more hateful than having to work fix and/or enhance someone else's poorly written perl code.

Perl can be a thing of beauty to work with. Or it can be hell.

Solar System Scale

Makes you feel rather insignificant.
