No luck yet on the link verification program. I’m trying to add recursion (so that it will check sub-directories), but that’s proving to be tricky, as Perl doesn’t support recursion properly. Well, there are ways around that.

Meanwhile, I’ve been trying to be more productive at work. I realized last night that I really have trouble saying “No” to myself, and as a result I spend a lot of time at work goofing off. I still get my work done, sure, but I should be a lot more productive than I am. Besides, I’m goofing off on somebody else’s dollar. It’s unfair to Intersect.

Saalon‘s looking to switch jobs again. Once he settles on one, I’m gonna take a flight up there so we can watch a bit of anime. We want to watch The Castle of Cagliostro, Armitage III, maybe some El Hazard, and others I’m sure.

My parents were out looking at wooden columns when I got home (my Dad’s building a pergola out back), so I watered plants in the garden until they got home. Then, we had a long talk about various stuff that we’ve had to deal with. It was a conversation that everybody needed to have.

As a result, I didn’t get much work done on Wine, unfortunately. I managed to write about half a page’s worth, but even that was just taking an existing scene and tightening it up. Ah well. I’m going to focus on Wine work this week.

But, I did spend a bit of time working on Aria (a researching program I’m writing), which is currently trying to find everything it can about serial experiments lain on the web. I really need to re-visit the design, as it makes some faulty assumptions about various things. The report that it outputs could be prettified, too. Gotta find out how to insert a NetPositive window within an app, so I can render HTML.

And, come to think of it, I should add the ability to find image and sound files while I’m at it. It’s not a difficult feature, and would be quite useful.

Other stuff. Other stuff. I’m thinking of doing another anime music video, this time contrasting the Priss from the original Bubblegum Crisis with the Priss from Bubblegum Crisis 2040. I’m planning on using “Just Communication” (the main theme to Gundam Wing) for the music. Just need to make the time to get started on it.
