Localization project, Canada, Berks United and FC Blackbird
Busy, busy, busy. I have been working on a localization project that is kicking my butt. I won the project a few months ago as part of a larger project. Then got involved with some other projects and when I came back to this won last week I realized I forgot how big it was. So, I started right away. But, the saying goes. “If it can go wrong it will.” or Murphy’s law… something like that anyway. So, I planned on taking the weekend and banging out a bunch of it. Well, of course I discovered I had a trojan horse on my computer. Perfect! Spent the whole weekend cleaning that up. (I’m not sure it is completely healed actually. Then I discovered that I had to do a bunch of editing on the source file to be able to translate it correctly. Lost more time. So, a week and a half of little sleep and lots of stress. I’m coming down with a cold. What sucks is I’m heading to Canada for a tournament with my outdoor team Berks United early tomorrow. Really don’t need to be sick for a weekend of soccer and drinking. But, I’m a trooper. 😉
I’m excited about heading to our great white neighbor to the north. I haven’t been there for years. Not since Julian and I used to peruse Kingston. 😉 We’re going to London.. not Kingston but it will be great to be back, eh?
Before that though my O-30 Premier League team FC Blackbird has a play off game. We are in first place for regular play, so we play the last place team called Principal. They’re in last but we seem to have trouble with them for some reason. Hopefully we can break that tonight! I want to bring home the championship t-shirts!
Seriously, what is wrong with Comcast???
I just wasted almost 2 hours trying to get my computer to work!!
For some reason this morning when went to start working this morning, my computer was at the log in screen. Strange, because I didn’t turn it off last night. Then I realized my server was at the log in screen too. So, I chalked it up to good old MS Update Tuesdays. So, then I couldn’t connect to the internet with a browser. IM worked, but no browser. Did every scan I know, thinking maybe I had a virus. Still nothing… checked the server… same issues. Ok maybe something is wrong with my router… rebooted… more of the same. Updated the firmware, which meant reconfiguring all my old settings. Still no better! Only thing left is it has to be my provider.. Comcast. So, I fooled around with rebooting the cable modem etc. Still nothing.
Then after getting sick of it and wanting to throw it everything out the window. (I controlled myself though) Boom! Everything works again?!?!?
Grrrr… should have just let it go and done nothing… OK, now time to actually get some work done.
