Good day [Mar. 2nd, 2004|05:27 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Stayed up late doing DB trickery. Went well.

Woke up late, refreshed. Sun was shining bright through all the windows in the house.

Had some coffee.

Got my bogus parking ticket from Jan 21st cancelled. Again. The lot manager had changed since last time, though, so I could understand this guy, and he was pissed at the parketing attendant.... said he's going to get a talkin' to. Good. That's what I was hoping for. I hate people wasting my time.

Biked to work in the sun.

Somewhat productive day... got other people working on useful things. Not sure I did much useful myself... just prioritized things, which I suppose is useful in itself, but doesn't feel productive.

Biked home via new route. (still nice weather!)

Got this email:

the O'Reilly Open Source Convention 2004 at the Portland

Re: Excellent...

You might catch it (or some form of it) at the MySQL conference in Orlando first.

I look forward to your MySQL high-performance stuff. :-) I'll be buying your book as soon as I can.

I'm going to be there.

I'll definitely keep an eye on it. I'm looking to make it there for the few days.

Mental note: Go check on registration
