1. Torture: 16:14

Reading Dominique's blog post about "Deal or No Deal" made me feel terrible about television shows. Marcelle told me about Wowowee, too... How twisted do we have to be in order to derive pleasure from watching the agony of the poor?

2. Progress!: 23:09

The Ruby on Rails web programming framework is just plain amazing. I added maps to my search prototype. The code was really simple! I'm almost a week and a half ahead of schedule on the interactive prototype. I'll focus on the backend for the rest of the week so that I can run that performance study...

Very happy girl.
