‘N’ … little ‘y’ … GIGANTIC ‘Q’

Everybody’s favorite remedy! Well, I have resorted to drugging myself – just need to stay away from heavy machinery … it is a good thing that I drive compact car eh 🙂
Work remains busy as we have entered the prestigious “testing” phase. This is the time when we developers (dare I say ‘engineers‘) like to pass things onto the QA department. We have beat up on it and continue finding ways to make it better – but the real enjoyment of doing something “almost” the same thing over-and-over-and-over … just to see if everything meets spec in all conditions, if there are inconsistencies throughout the software, if something broke between the last release and now … well … we like to leave that to testers. Otherwise, we just want to get back to the code and fix things RIGHT NOW … it is hard to control that urg!
But, never-the-less, we have entered that phase and some of this “testing” rides on our shoulders … so while work may not be hectic, stressful, or exciting as normal …. it will likely be loooonnnnnggg! The job must get done.
Melissa seems to be enjoying her vacation … see … she moves to Florida and lives down by the pool or on the beaches. She goes to Vancouver for a “vacation” and ends up painting parking lot lines on construction sites. Strange life she leads … bet she is thinking of the song Home for a Rest right about now 😉
PS: Isabel has been upgraded to a class 4 Hurricane … though is still several days away and won’t likely make it to the Florida coast.

    Hey!! You’ve gotta drive me back to lunch in one piece, y’hear?
    And I just saw a TV report about Isabelle and can confirm — they don’t expect it to reach us. They do, however, expect the weather to be just *spiffy* for the next six or seven days — low humidity, yeah!

  2. If you’re really dying to experience a hurricane, you ought to be on the Atlantic coast of FLorida. that way you can experience all the fury of nature rather than the weak remnants of it after it has crossed the peninsula.

  3. I am dying to experience a hurricane as much as I was an earthquake … it is just one of those things that a person “fears”. And I think that after having an experience (hopefully light – much like the earthquake in Olympia was) will help me know what to expect if a larger one happens to hit. By no means am I looking forward to it …
