I’ve finished the changes to the diary scripts. Everything seems to be running just fine now, with the new timestamps.

I’m beginning to think that I need to update my diary scripts. This doesn’t come from the scripts’ age; code doesn’t rust. These scripts have been well-tested.

But, they lack one major feature: they were written assuming a minimum granularity of one day. When I find myself posting several messages in one day, the entries tend to exhibit an awkward construction.

There are a few ways to handle this problem, so maybe I’ll try to fix the scripts some time in the next few days.

Meanwhile, I hope to finish my Christmas shopping tonight. Hopefully, I can wrap everything tonight as well, so I can mail anything that needs to be mailed tomorrow morning after Men’s Academy. Tomorrow morning will be our final Men’s Academy meeting until January.

I also hope to work up the courage to ask a few of my current and former bosses to write letters of recommendation for me, so that I can apply to GMU‘s Graduate Degree program for this summer. I find it very difficult to ask my bosses to brag about me.
