Hmmmm. A busy few couple of days. We keep pushing for the deadline at work, so much code is being had by all. I spent 12 hours at work today looking into document index building problems… I then came home to discover that the script I wrote to convert groff to docbook (groff2db) had caused a whole bunch of email from the people who are using it… I looked into this a bit until eye strain told me it was time to go to bed.

Second wedding anniversary last night, and Catherine got served parmisan cheese with cheese wevils in it. Hmmmmm…

My laptop arrived yesterday — two days after having been paid for. Well done IBM… It is nearly setup properly.

North at a place called the Entrance visiting my grandfather. I should put some photos of the place here.

One of those fdays when you are home for about a waking hour — church, a house warming, afternoon tea with the inlaws and a birthday all in one day. No coding got done, but a least my wrists got a rest…

Neil and Rachel’s wedding today. Aint love grand?

Feeling a bit mata carpal today, so I am taking it easy for a bit. I have the wrist barces on and everything. I might try to knock off the faq though because that has been on the todo list for quite some time and I am very behind.

I don’t feel amazingly well, a bad headache which is probably related to my ridiculous caffeine levels at work is the worst. Oh well, better soldier on and just not drink too much tonight at the company drinks.

Ironing out the last few formatting errors in the next version of the comp.text.pdf FAQ.

Well, another long gap between diary entries. I have been battling ODMA, ISYS searching, Windows threading and a whole bunch of other issues at work recently which have left me a little distracted. I did however find the time to come up with the first cut of groff2db, mainly as part of that bet with Greg Lehey…

Working on finishing off the next release of the comp.text.pdf FAQ. Will be there soon hopefully.
