Monday August 15 2011

Hard to believe I'm starting this thread, at 8:30 a.m. central US time, but perhaps it's a good sign for the day. Welcome, all. Do it now!


Got bitten by insects and couldn't nap. Only really got done basic maintenance and submitted OSAP signature forms.

 For the next three hours though, I'm going to focus only on programming. Nothing else matters.

I'm frustrated with myself for my late start...I've ogtten on a ridiculously late schedule, which I really hate.

OK, going to pick out 10 hrs of tasks for today and then get going. If I work with focus I should be able to get done by 11pm, which will help me start shifting to an earlier schedule:
*Collect 1 (2 hrs)
*image (4 hrs)
*shop and cook (2 hrs)
*book donation (1 hr)
*Start checking error bars
*Re-start hybs (<1 hr)

Thanks for starting us out Scribbler!  Where is everyone this morning??   

Got to work at 9:30, which is ok since I worked over the weekend and needed to sleep in a bit.   I've been to the gym, checked email, and now I'm making my todo list.

First thing is to check with the toastmasters prez and see if we have an agenda for today.
