Work, water, Wean, and wars (of students)

Work has been awesome lately. I’ve been writing more unit tests (the fun kind), and I often find myself wishing I could work more hours on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, and wishing that I could work fewer hours on Tuesdays. I might re-adjust my schedule to be 5 hours every day instead of the current 4/8/4/4. That would be awesome, except it would mean I work until 5 on Mondays and Wednesdays.

In case you haven’t heard (i.e. you aren’t a CMUer), a water main broke in Oakland today, leaving all of campus and most of the area around campus without water. Fairfax still had water (albeit with weakened water pressure), but Greg and I went to an all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet for dinner instead anyway, as there were notices that we shouldn’t use water unless absolutely necessary. So yeah… good times.
See here for a lovely piccar of the street exploded.

So yeah, as a result of that, they shut down the clusters (no AC without water) and server rooms, so I was left unable to really continue doing my OS project. I’m fairly confident about the idea though… so I shouldn’t be too terribly worried about the actual implementation. In any case, I have this (extended) weekend to do it, and it isn’t due until next Wednesday.
I also worked on (finished?) my first pen-based computing assignment today: a tablet PC version of tic tac toe. Unfortunately, I can’t get the program to run due to a security error. I should figure out why eventually.

I’ve been doing a lot of work on Student Wars v2 lately. After I make a few more GPA cards, some core Events, and a couple Rules, I think it will be ready for playtesting. Hopefully this will be much more balanced than Student Wars was… and not in the boring “everyone is on equal ground” kind of way, but in the “each of the four primary factions have a specific strength” kind of way. Exciting.

Life is amazing.

It’s almost 2 AM. I should probably be asleep.
