On day it’s ‘true’, the next ‘hirtellius’. Or ‘hamartia’.
I used to pride myself in knowing every word. No longer!
It’s week 3 at Mozilla and things are good. I am settling into a rhythm. My
list of things to do is already pretty long. I have fixed a few problems
and have a pretty good understanding of Socorro’s schema. Git workflow for
me is still not so natural. Other teams I’ve worked with use far fewer
features than I’ve learned in the last week.
Over the weekend, I shored up my bike gear - batteries for lights and
cleaning out of old bags of gloves. I also dusted off my sewing machine,
and finished a curtain. High on the victory, I went out and got more
curtain fabric, and made a new knitting needle holder from old remnants. I
also finished my first hat of the season. That was Sunday.
Saturday, I took a long walk, saw a very bad movie, upgraded my irc host,
and tackled a couple patches for PostgreSQL. One was a bugfix I hope I can
convince someone we need, and the other was a syntax checker patch review.
I just found out about pg_indent, and tried unsuccessfully to use it. I
will take another crack at it this morning, hopefully wrapping up my review
of that patch.
