Daily Grind: Slightly nervous

Name: Vin (aka foot tapper)
How Vin feels today: Slightly nervous @ 9:45:00 AM
What Vin really wants today: To hope that a certain experimental web project I recently worked on does not come around to bite me in the ass today. Also, to get self organized then get to some serious coding for an uninterrupted period of time.

Music Stuck in Head: Easy Lover / Phil Collins
Laugh all you want but you know you've had this song stuck in your head at one point in your life as well.

Stuff to do today:

  • Mess around with new iPhone software
  • Cut and paste all sorts of things in celebration of having cut and paste
  • Fix older XML files that have since gone stagnant since launch of GLM 4.0
  • Fix previous fix that I just put in place that managed to bork all of my XML files
  • D'oh
  • Get a better umbrella to combat week of ensuing rain
  • Finish up reading the comments on this Reddit page when (and if) work slows down

Daily Grind: Not bitter

Name: Vin (aka mr. approachable)
How Vin feels today: Not bitter @ 8:45:00 AM
What Vin really wants today: To catch up on some work projects that are just little bit behind schedule. Also, the obligatory continuation of fixing bugs on this redesign - which seems to be getting less and less thankfully.

Music Stuck in Head: NICU / Phish
Play it Leo.

Stuff to do today:

  • Note the triumphant return of DotComic (look a couple posts back)
  • Draw up idea for next comic before idea falls out of head
  • Figure out why my xmlhttp requests are failing on Safari (and possibly other browsers)
  • @#%&**!
  • Debate going over to Blockbuster and renting the new Ghostbusters game
  • Figure out time in which to actually play said video game
  • Meh, reviews have been so-so anyway (again, look a couple posts back)
  • Note that 1 vs 100 on Xbox Live is actually kinda fun
  • If it goes to a pay model though, I don't think I'll be playing as much
  • ...
  • ...
  • (look a couple posts back)

Daily Grind: Slightly accomplished

Name: Vin (aka glm fanboy)
How Vin feels today: Slightly accomplished @ 9:04:00 AM
What Vin really wants today: To mark that this is the first official new daily grind post of GeekLikeMe 4.0. Also state that aforementioned daily grind is now once again a weekday thing - hooray. Oh, and also to continue fixing various bugs with recently launched new version of this site.

Music Stuck in Head: Glory Days / Bruce Springsteen
Mostly because I'm curious to hear how it sounds with Phish as the backup band.

Stuff to do today:

  • Figure out a way to get more sleep
  • Update 'potentially related posts' feature on content pages, group posts together by date rather than list them out
  • Modify XML feeds
  • Figure out if pinging blog services really makes any difference at all
  • Build an auto-pinger just for good measure
  • Move on to less nerdy topics...
  • Pre-order the new Monkey Island games from Telltale at some point before July 6th
  • Yes, Monkey Island: click here for more info
  • Also get credit card ready to purchase Sam & Max for XBLA
  • I heart Telltale Games
