THE Lowly Peon

Finally, Momentum!

I'm feeling pretty good. Today, my wife offered to make dinner while I geeked for a while. It's a long overdue geeking, but I had to put it on hold until I could fix a problem with something on my computer.

I made such good progress on petercompernolle.com up until a few months ago, when my momentum just stopped. Dead halt. I had lots of other stuff to do, and I had reached a point that I thought was good enough for the time being. But then the wedding stuff was over, and my bosses had left Hangzhou, so I had time again, and I wanted to start programming. But alas! MySQL couldn't find the mysql.sock file. Whatever that means, your guess is as good as mine. I spent hours in September trying to figure it out, and only yesterday got around to playing with it again.

Nearly all of Saturday morning I spent trying to fix this problem. After a super excellent video chat with ker_bbs and ~benji!~, I asked ~benji!~ if he could take a look. Without any exaggeration, he had diagnosed and fixed the problem in under a minute. I didn't know whether to be ecstatic or infuriated. (Thank you, Benji!)

So today I decided to work on the site again, and I finally made it so I could post logs without doing it the long manual way. So I'm going to start posting again! This won't be exciting for most of you, as the posts will be mostly geek oriented. But if you have an RSS reader, be sure to subscribe to the feed!

Hooray! I finally have some momentum again!
