Murphy won this round

Today, Murphy made me his bitch. He totally kicked my ass and made me call him “uncle”.

You may have won this round, but I’ll bring it, punk.

I had promised to have a fresh build of the Mavericks website ready for final review today, but jGenerator chose this exact time to decide to pack it in. It’s not working consistently, and I couldn’t publish a complete section of Mavericks. I spent the entire day trying to track down the reason for an external library to suddenly refuse to work, when I believe that nothing had changed. Obviously, my assumption about nothing having changed is wrong. I know what I’m doing over the weekend.

To top it off, I am so fried from having burned midnight oil while juggling what feels like a bajillion simultaneous urgent! highest priority! NOW! demands, that I don’t think I was exactly productive/effective at tracking down the cause of the problem today. Felt much like I was watching someone drowning, in slow motion. I knew what I had to do, but the neurons just weren’t firing as needed, or perhaps in the wrong order…

Thanks a lot, Murphy.

  1. I hope that 1% popularity rating at the bottom of your post is autogenerated, and not some commentary on your perceived sense of self-worth.

    My heart goes out to you amigo. I know this is extraordinarily unlikely, but let me know if there is any way I can help you out here (or elsewhere).

  2. heya, thanks, B. This is one of those times when the autogenerated “popularity” isn’t that far off the mark ๐Ÿ™‚

    There’s really nothing anyone can do – we’ll just have to hunker down and figure out wtf went wrong. My gut tells me (unfortunately) that I likely did something silly/careless that just wasn’t exposed until now. Not a great feeling ๐Ÿ˜‰
