What Not To Name the Baby

So last night, I dreamt that daisy_knotwise had named the new baby "Jeannette Wilson" without consulting me. "Jeannette" after I don't know what, "Wilson" after the basketball.

I was not pleased, despite the fact that Julianna Margulies approved of the name -- or Carol Hathaway, I suppose, given that we were in a hospital.

Gretchen tells me that she'd mulled over Jeannette as a baby name yesterday and had discarded it without bothering to mention it to me.

Just as well, I suppose.

Counting Down (Redux)

Well, I'm down to 122 compile errors. Unfortunately, that's a bit misleading, as there's one of the files that gives out after the first 102 compile errors, so you keep fixing problems, but you'll still have 102 compile errors until you fix enough of them so that the file can compile through to the end.

On the other hand, I'm approaching line 900 of a clean compile for the offending file, so that's a good thing.

On the gripping hand, the silly file is 3576 lines long.

This wouldn't be so bad if I weren't modifying a bunch of code that I'll eventually end up tossing away as unnecessary later in the project. But for the moment, I need it around and compiling. *sigh*

Sequel Blues

I keep trying to install the new copy of Steinberg's Sequel onto my computer in the office so that I can play with it and it stubbornly keeps hanging the computer up during the install so that only a hard reset will fix it.

Obviously, I need a new computer. :)
