Weekly review: Week ending September 16, 2011

September 18, 2011 - Categories: review, weekly

This week felt slower than normal. Looking back, though, I can see that it was pretty packed. My sense of time is a little off, I guess. School has started, so we've been helping J- with her homework. Between that and going to work more often so that I can pair program or go to meetings, things have been busy.

  • Work
    • [X] Put together and give IBM Drupal Users Group presentation on Source code and configuration management
    • [X] Implement more features for project T
    • [X] Follow up on project I
    • [-] Prototype some more for project O
    • Revised IBM comic
    • Gave project C tips on finding Ruby on Rails people
    • Tried out Maxivista for extending my Windows desktop onto my second laptop; interesting, although a little quirky
    • Tried out VirtuaWin for virtual desktops.
  • Relationships
    • [X] Help with build class
    • [X] Follow up on cat boarding
    • First study group: square roots, convex/concave shapes
