For those who don't know the background here, our official work hours are 9 AM to 6 PM. I tend to stick to those hours, give or take an hour late. (Generally, I'm here at 9:30 AM each morning.) My director (our corporate lingo, but in a ways more of a technical designer & manager role in one person... at least he's got some technical clue) and the other 3 engineering in my group start rolling in around 10:30am, and some aren't even here until noon. They stay correspondingly late. And I feel odd leaving so early, with them still here. Even if I should be justified in it.
I also know that I goof off a bit during the week, playing solitaire and the like. Not unreasonably so, of course, but I still feel bad being "behind". Even if I was forced to burn behind ahead a week by taking a part from someone else who was behind a week. Yeah, I'll admit to behind ahead of schedule again. Pffffft.
And my code is taking *FOREVER* to compile. Well, one file in particular. Before, it was dumping error messages early on and then taking forever to clean up. Now it's just taking forever, which means that maybe, just maybe, I have it cleaned up and working. Yay me. (These error messages were driving me batty on Friday, as we use a pre-compiler that strips a lot of context -- this part was working fine -- and the passes the processed file to the real compiler, which barfs with the most useless error messages. I might -- might -- have found the problems, all typographical as usual. Frelling compilers. Do what I mean, not what I say. :^)
