Killer Headache

An uneventful day to be sure, in fact almost all of it was spent sound asleep. It had been a long week so I celebrated a bit last night with Andy and Lisa. Went to one of the great music joints of the world, Danny’s Blues Saloon. This place looks like the movie set of every roadhouse bar scene. Rough wood walls and floors surrounding a large dance floor filled with the gyrations of some of OKC’s eclectic night life. The band was Scott Keaton and the Deviants and they were hot with their standard cross of rockabilly, Texas blues and classic rock and roll. I had a few more than usual drinks and actually asked a woman to dance. God, it’s been a long time since I’ve done that. Nothing came of it, but was good to feel like I had a youthful life again.

The unfortunate part about the celebration was the looming fact that I had to release some software this morning at 4:00 AM (the only time when students seem to actually sleep). The release took far longer than I would have liked, files were missing from the release procedure, stored procedures not scripted, etc. It all got worked out, but I’ve started working on a system to help track web project file and database changes. We use source control, but that only helps you keep track of changes across the whole project but it doesn’t help you track database changes nor does it help you build accurate release plans. I want to build something that tracks changes across multiple branches and automatically builds merge and release plans. We’ll see how it goes.

Well, I know it’s not much of an update nor does it have any of my wise and wonderful observations, but at least it’s something.
