Worse than a shell script...

Today we came up with something worse than a shell script to replace someone in the lab...

As Kale entered the lab, we informed him that he had been replaced by a half a dozen dough-nut holes.... now that is unsulting...

anyway... I look back and remember, I had a day off once... just once... at it looks like it will be that way until we reach a release date.

We seem to be on a 60 hour per week schedule for the duration of this project. I guess that's the sad thing about joining a project like this so late, but I guess that is just how it goes...

So, I leave the house at 8am... and don't return until around 11pm... and I only get paid for a 9.5 hour day... that kinda sucks.I almost wish they would just keep us until 9... because then I would be able to take a bus to still get home at the same time.

but anyway... yesterday was my day off. and I went out to North Bend to climb Mt Si. It was a good time... Allister, James, Brian, Mike, Jaani, and I all went up the mountain for a day in the wilderness-esk type area... I only say "esk type area" because while it is a remote area that is relatively difficult to access, the trail is one of the most hiked trails in the country. It's a lot of fun, and a bunch of people were up there with their dogs... so Jaani loved running around without his leash.

oddly enough, I don't think Jaani wandered more than five feet away from me the whole time... and that was only because James wanted to race him down the trail... but he never went away from the group.

Meanwhile... Jaani has cost me another $260 in vet bills due to a skin infection, which may cost more money if it doesn't get better and I have to take him to the dermatologist...

Other than that... it's work work work... all day and into the wee hours of the night.

I guess I have plenty of time for reading though, so it's a good thing that I have a lot of books I can read.

anyway... I'm going to bed. here is a picture from my hike:


Later,
