This breaks my heart, but I have to do it.

Anyone in the SF Bay area want a cat?

He’s a 6 year old domestic short-hair (tabby), neutered, and tends to be skittish at times but very affectionate. He’s just not dealing with the stress of having a toddler around, and is currently experiencing behavioral problems which can probably be corrected with a change of environment and a small amount of training. (Specifically he needs to re-learn what a litter-box is and how to use it.)

An ideal environment would be one where he would be primarily in-doors with no other pets or small children, as he is currently not dealing well with his litter-mate (fighting, hissing, growling.) Once he has mellowed out and adjusted to his new environment, the introduction of another cat may be possible.

I don’t want to have to give him up, but there is nothing else I can do at this point. If we had space to designate a “safe-room” for him, I could probably re-train and re-introduce him into our household, but the only room I would have been able to use for that is now a nursery.

I am looking into other options (friends/family/no-kill shelters) but I thought I’d post this here as well.

I can’t beleive I just did that….

I was trying to fix messed up record in our in-house MySQL database. I ran an update command and forgot use a where clause to specify the id of the record I was trying to fix. MySQL very happily went along and made the change to every rocord in the database.

Long story short, I fixed the record – and messed up 16389 others.


I’m waiting for a call back from the resident DB guru to see if he can help me fix this.

Man, this is bad.


You ever get that feeling that you’ve done something before?

I’m feeling that way at work right now. We just finished restarting a project because of a server failure, for the second time this week. For those of you playing along at home, this is the 3rd time this project has been started. (Last time we lost almost 2 weeks of work. This time, we lost about 3 days.) Same project, same kind of failure, different server. (If I’m not mistaken this was the replacement hardware that was set up after the last failure.)

would rather be home smashing stupid badguys in City of Heroes.

That reminds me… Gossip, if you read this – can we get a “Games / MMOGs / COH” category?
