It's Very Monday Out Today

No, nothing too horrible has happened. It's just that feeling of being nibbled to death by ducks.

Even for December, it's been an exceptionally gloomy day. Low, gray, oppressive clouds that caused the headlights on my car to come on, that sort of thing.

I spent more time wrestling with Visual Studio .NET 2003, which has now introduced me to a behavior -- which one of my co-workers was already familiar with -- where you just can't actually trace into a routine when you're debugging and stop at a breakpoint. Step In, Step Over, neither actually works. Instead, they just throw you to the end of the function that you're in, making actually debugging unlikely.

I fixed a few bugs in some of the new code I'm working on. I managed to redesign another chunk of code to fix an entirely different problem that someone found a while back. It's not like it was a completely unproductive day.

It's just cold, gray, and annoying.
