Whew, made it through the weekend. Both shows were great! This weekend I'm in Austin for the band I'm just filling in for. Going to wear my Han Solo costume. laugh1

You'll need to send pictures Grin

Ugh yeah, I have a weird issue where I'm transmitting a lot of data in bursts of xml. I mark the database table when it is started and again when it is ended, but what's going on in the meantime feels like a mystery sofa (I mean, I obviously know what the code should be doing, but I feel like I'm in the dark when it's left the "to process" queue but not reached the "completed" queue.

Tracking that kind of stuff really only works with logging I find. Then you can identify what's going on during the process.

Mine will be easier to fix once I've made the boss happy with the marketing side of things Roll Eyes He apparently has an idea how the charts should look, but I can't seem to generate the data to match what's in his head. So I focus on that instead of what needs fixing crash . It's a good thing I'm taking next week off, I'm starting to go slightly crazy with this project.


wow, a tube with hdmi, I've never heard of that! Congrats on teh new TV. Sometimes i feel ill thinking of how much I paid for mine in 2008, but after watching a "newer" tv at someones house, then coming back to mine, I can see that it was worth it.

Back when we bought the old TV, plasma flatscreens were really popular, but they were also expensive and used too much energy, compared to a tube. What was funny was that the tv we had bought was actually advertised as HD ready, but at that point I had no idea what it meant to have HD. Our new TV was less that 700 Euros but it's not all that big either (bigger than the tube tv) compared to other flat screens. It fits perfectly in the space in our living room though.

I'm struggling with some issues with my project at work. It seems that when I tell the service to stop so I can replace it, some of the threads don't want to stop, but say they are stopped, and it ends up crashing the entire application server yay

We finally broke down and got a new television set. It's an LED flat screen naturally. The good news is that I can hear actual dialog and not just music. Apparently our previous television (Last of the old tubes), that said it was "HD Ready" meaning it had an HDMI connector on the back, didn't really handle the audio from an HDMI correctly, and so we could hear the music really loud DVD/BluRays we would watch, but the dialog sounded muffled or in the background. This new tv fixes that problem, and it's a 4K screen, so looks good and sharp. It's even gotten me interested in watching videos again.

Thinking of doing an architectual refactoring, and salvage the stuff that works. dunno Boss won't like the sound of it, and he's really wanting to show something to the customers. Other projects are coming along though.

Hey Simmo:

Saw this thought of you
It's funny cos it's true! (and goes the same for guitarists... poor things)


Nothing new here. Kind of struggling with one of the songs from the band I'm filling in for. It's a very repetitive and fairly complex bassline (that is very prominent unfortunately) and my hand cramps up (for lack of a better description). I think I'm "squeezing" my bass' neck too hard, but I can't stop...
I think this is getting better... at least it went well at practice (I really need to be practicing at home more too though).


I have practice with both bands tomorrow :rock2: Next weekend I'll be going up to Austin, catching a show and staying at a hotel, then practicing with the full band (for the first time).
Was a pretty fun weekend, practice went well, and the "real" members were happy with how it went. I have two shows with my band this weekend... I'm excited for the Friday show, but the Saturday show... is a clusterduck... We were asked to play because a band dropped out, so we agreed. Then it took forever for our name to get added to the "event page" as well as the flier. Then we find out there is at least another band who is on the gig that isn't on the event page. I'm not even sure how many bands are playing but I think it's 5, which would put us as playing pretty early. Making it a learning experience, I've set two rules for the band: 1) we don't work with that guy again 2) we don't play shows with more than 4 bands (3 preferred) unless it's supposed to be a "fest."


and I'm still struggling to do enough on two projects at once to keep both clients happy doh

Instead I'm going to write the frontend in HTML5 and have it work like a mini-webserver. That should make things look a little nicer anyway. Grin
That sounds fun!

Well the project I've been working on for my wife is going to get a new frontend. I decided that JavaFX is too much of a pain to maintain. Instead I'm going to write the frontend in HTML5 and have it work like a mini-webserver. That should make things look a little nicer anyway. Grin

I've been tired too, which I don't understand since I've been getting enough sleep. I don't know what's up with me.
Pretty sure my issue is the damn cats. It's so weird, I've had my cat about 15 years and it wasn't till I "baby sat" my sisters cat that he took to sleeping on my legs. I now have another cat who looks up to my cat and has adopted this behavior laugh1


Good luck on the concert,
Thanks! I think it went pretty well. The sound in that room isn't the best, but everyone seemed to like it.


and your band practices Grin
I think that went pretty well too. There were a couple of places where I had to stop and ask "wait, what are you playing right there?" and jot it down on a note card. I plan to organize my "cheat sheets" better by teh weekend and am driving back to Austin in a couple weeks for another practice. It's kind of a lot of work for one gig... but it may turn into more (their current bassist is in a lot of bands).
