Wrapping up loose ends at work. Project I is well-sorted out, project C slightly less so. I let a few embarrassing bugs slip through to user acceptance testing – I really should find a way to make it easier and more fun to do manual testing instead of relying on automated tests! ;)

Looking forward to seeing my family again!
