Long Stringy Bits

I'm so going to write a post about how piss-poor the databases for scholarly articles are when I have time. They need to hire a web 2.0 developer, for real, because whatever their using (some arcane home grown perl system no doubt) blows. And there's no reason that they couldn't offer desktop clients, which for this kind of service makes a hell of a lot of sense. It's an interesting development question, because their business model is so different from every other web service. Coming soon!

I have to go to class soon (and take a test! on speech production and language learning, but I'm feeling pretty good about it) and then work in the yarn store which is going swimmingly. Spinning group tonight, but I'm not going to have a wheel there. Interestingly I have a hard time working on my own projects when I'm there, and I come home and I'm not incredibly interested in knitting or doing much spinning. The end result is that I haven't been working on my own projects very much, but I seem (somehow) to be getting lots of things done, so there's nothing really to complain about.

Onward and Upward!
