I have a few things to say in this blog as it's been quite a while. The first and most important is to tell you to read Under Power as it's a kickass comic that i've just started reading (going through the archives at the moment). Secondly i'm back to being off-charge at work with training etc to do. Due to a lack of training materials i've started looking into XML this morning as I really don't know as much as I should about it.
I'm trying to think of other little projects I can do whilst (or to supplement) my training. It's really quite hard, and not recommended to read books about programming for 7.5 hours a day, especially if it's not very interesting. I think i'd like to do a php/database driven photo section for wuki. It sure as hell would beat the system I use right now. I don't really recall much about mysql and php though but it shouldn't take me long to pick it up again. It would be especially useful as I now have the little watch camera and Claire has a new digital camera which is pretty cool.
I've got about a week and a half before I intend to take a day or two off work. No big plans yet besides Claire not having anymore exams to do and getting a week off. Still, we need to properly celebrate her recent 21st birthday so something is bound to happen. This aside from this are pretty much the same. Hixie now seems obsessed with Vice City. Something I can relate to but I haven't played it in a while. I got over 90% complete or something and it was only leaving some things I couldn't be bothered to do. Some of them are a little too pointless for anyone over the age of 15.
But anyway, hopefully we should be seeing more blogging and more development of wuki in general for a few weeks. I'll also get around to adding stuff for all the new restaurants i've been to recently into the database.
