Closer to Fine

I rearranged the calculational core for our product to support minimal recalc for this release some months ago. We're finally approaching release and testing the feature. Unsurprisingly, there was a bug. Annoyingly, I'm having to try my third fix to the problem.

The source of the problem was that I wasn't necessarily correctly initializing all of the cells in the product when a minimal recalc was required. I fixed that, but then I was initializing the cells more than once. I've now stripped out the excess initializations and things look like they're running correctly, but I won't know for sure until a test build is completed and run through this particular test harness.

We'll see.

19 Months Old

Katie is 19 months old today. While daisy_knotwise was cleaning up the kitchen after dinner, I took Katie out to the backyard with her large ball and a frisbee. She was fascinated by the frisbee and wanted to figure out how to make it fly too, but she doesn't quite have the wrist action for it.

She was quite willing to bring it back to me so I could throw it again, though.

Yeah, for her 19 month birthday, I taught Katie how to play fetch. :)
