08:22 pm - Downtime in the Crunch Time
So it looks like I'm doing another 11 hour day, after yesterday's 11 hour day. Integration? Yeah, it's an integrated mess all right. Things are getting straightened out, and I'm learning some in the process. But we're supposed to release on Friday, and it just doesn't seem like it's going to happen. I am assuming (and hoping) that our boss is out there getting us a soft extension, as some of the delay has been due to finding faults in other libraries from inside the company. At least one business day has been wasted to someone else's bugs. More time is still being lost to other people's bugs. Argh.

I wasted a good 4 hours myself this afternoon, all because of "x:" instead of "X:". Frell. Stupid semi-case-sensitive NT kernel. Someday, when I don't have to type the problem, I'll explain it to the developers I know, and you too will want to kill the development team at Microsoft. (At least, I assume they're at fault. For all I know, it might still be the fault of some other group in my company.)

Right now I'm waiting for a full rebuild of debugging information so I can go bug-hunting. So I'm writing stuff down, as I haven't done a lot of it recently. Dee's getting some plans together to visit her mom & sister in Washington state at the end of September, and so I'm thinking about making a trip of my own during that window, back to Virginia to see a Virginia Tech game and catch up with some friends, and go visit home.

In a way, I think it'd be cool. But then, I also know that there are many other things that I could put that money towards paying off, and I just don't know if it's worth it. I wonder if that's the real reason I'm hesitant about things, or if it's just an excuse. I'm not sure...
