children of dune - leto 1

oh come the fuck on

Dear, don't know this about me, there's really no way you could but let me summarize the last week of February through the first week in April for you.

I've been assigned to script and test one hundred something different defect and defect parts on a computer program located on servers who had to get a firehose from the local firemen to cool down after their cooling system broke--I swear I have the email and I forwarded that to everyone I ever met, state data was on a computer being cooled by men holding firehoses. Men. Holding. Firehoses.

This is my life.

I have three help_haiti fic due of lengths between 7K and 10K words because the thing I forgot is when I'm writing long fic, I keep doing it until I crash or get writer's block or perhaps the absurdity of working on a statewide network that spans hundreds of thousands of computers was held together one glorious day by men with firehoses will eventually lead to darkness and despair. Whatever.

Delicious, there used to be a drop down at the bottom of the page where you could specify the number of entries per page. I had it defaulted to one hundred. It is now at ten and there is no drop down to fix it back to 100.

Where did you hide it?

This is what sanity looks like when it hangs by a goddamn firehose with all of my completed work.


PS: Okay, it's under display options drop down where the number of bookmarks is. Is it just me or are programmers sadists? I suddenly understand why schools require they take a semester philosophy course that comes down to "The Strange Thing Called the End User". It's also obviously not enough.
