What was supposed to be a simple, fun program turned out to be an excruciating manhunt for one tiny piece of code that I needed. Burn on me.
And it took me forever too. Searching through web page after web page, remark after remark. It was insane. But finally I conquered the internet and found what I was looking for. Now I get to impress my friends with my newly aquired knowledge.
But until then, I'm going to continue my work on the program that posts my computer's feelings. Yes, the ever controversial program that made the fine people at Blogger put a restriction on my site. To avoid that again, I may make my computer post to his own blog, but where's the fun in that.
You know what, my computer needs a name. I don't like calling it, 'my computer'. It needs something better. More pizazz. Oh well, I'll figure it out later. I wish I could get this program to run on Josh, my home computer, but he has a Windows 98 personality and the program will only run on Windows XP. Or so I assume.
Anyway, my computer at work will post its feelings every hour based on how much I use it. I'm going to take the average of the computer usage monitor and then on a scale determine how well ole compo is being treated. I think it will be funny at first, but after the honeymoon effect is over, I'll probably delete it and start on some other new and retarded program. That seems to be how they go. Make em and erase em.
Now, if I had a professional programming job (hint, hint) then I wouldn't have to delete them after I make them because people would use them. Right now, I don't use LesZilla anymore because IE is the default browser and I actually do use TimeClock because otherwise I would have to remember my hours. Now I just have to remember to clock in and out. Speaking of...
My next task, after conquering the automated posting world, is to write a program that will sit in the system tray. As far as I know, that isn't hard. But of course, what do I know?
Back to work, I guess. I'll post later, of course...
God is good. All the time.
