I’m supposed to either be doing some coding or creating and applying certificates to a couple of servers but frankly I don’t have the motivation right now. My mind is elsewhere for one thing. In other words I think I’ve been here long enough today and done enough today to call it quits.
At least I have a decent selection of music here. Headphones. Can’t hear my co-workers right now. I’ve got a couple of errands I need to run after work but I really just want to sleep. I’ve been getting up at 5 or 6 in the morning these days and as some of you know that used to be my bedtime. I guess children change that but even so there’s no really need for me to be up at that time I just keep waking up early. Unfortunately I keep going to sleep at midnight or later. On the plus side when I go to sleep I sleep the whole time which is not something I used to do much.
Let’s see what am I working on otherwise? I just rebuilt Melanie’s website with some PHP, Flash and CSS and all that. We got a lot more paintings added and the comments section now works – it wasn’t supposed to be up on the old site yet somehow I managed to upload the last development version on the old server. Oh well.
I’m trying to finish up my own site (not this one) – also written using CSS and PHP. It’s more of a coding site/freelancing site. But it’s not done so you can’t see it yet.
I’m also working on a super secret and exciting music website project. It’s still on the dl so I’m not saying anymore about it right now.
Aside from web programming what else? I’m trying to write more – I’m currently working on a screenplay for a film. It’s noir Faustian horror/thriller. I’m planning on shooting and directing it sometime in the relatively near future – but I’d like to finish the screenplay first. I’m also thinking about making one or two shorter films (i.e. 5 to 10 minutes long.) So basically I’m thinking about setting aside the full length noir faustian story for the time being and ripping out a couple of short texts with little dialogue and just shooting them. I’ve got a decent MiniDV camera but one othe errands mentioned earlier includes getting a new battery for the thing.
Speaking about writing I actually bought a really small laptop recently (an Averatec 1150) so that I would write more often and not be stuck in my office as I am often more inspired to write when sitting outside (e.g. the back porch, Genuine Joe’s, etc.) And mostly I prefer type writing to paper and pencil for anything extensive as I tend to write somewhat more lucidly. At least I hope so. I also feel compelled to write in general these days but I’m not sure journaling is my forte but there you go.
Speaking of going – I need to go get some info together for some servers and maybe a Mac.
