1999 October 14 : Boot camp midpoint

Those of you who know me will recognise how scary this is. I am now waking up at 8 am without an alarm clock, ready to get to work.

Admittedly, the main reason for this is that I can only work at the bootcamp site (that is, I have no net access from the suite), and I'm dependent on Jason's car to get to and from there. I can't hack until 2 am no matter how much I might want to.

I spent about half the day yesterday writing toolkit functions, instead of working on this week's problem set. There were some seemingly obvious functions, like get_user_name($user_id), that I couldn't find in the ACS. I asked a TA, Malte, why it didn't exist -- he shrugged and said I should write it. So I have. Haven't got the nerve to officially submit it yet, though. I want to use it a bit first and make sure no more clever ideas occur to me about how to make it more elegant.

Oops, time to go. More later.
