And prompted by ‘s recent post…

The City of Roseville, CA (where I live) is sponsoring a float this year in the Rose Parade, in honor of the city’s centenary. It has a train theme, which is entirely apropos because we, after all, a city whose existence was, for many years, based on the Southern Pacific. Heck, the city’s incorporation was three years after Southern Pacific decided to move the railroad yard from Rocklin (two miles up the road) to Roseville. And for many years this was the largest rail yard on the West Coast. (Not sure if Colton is now larger.)

And I got that bug fixed. I thought I was going to have to work on it all night, but I discovered that the error message was in itself being issued in error, because the noted situation will occur in a specific circumstance. Fix: a simple if statement.

Getting this out before I forget

With the holidays and a critical software release deadline, I’ve fallen far behind.

But I wish you all a wonderful 2009. Things will be better, I feel.

Bonne année
Glückliches Neues Jahr
Prospero Año Nuevo
Feliz Ano Novo

Oh, and I didn’t know this until a minute ago, because his birthday is not in his LJ profile, therefore Semagic won’t tell me…happy birthday !

  • 16:25 @iolantherosa C++ is object-oriented programming, which is a pretty difficult concept. Java is also OO, but probably easier for beginners. #

I’m at the post office. The parking lot is very full…I had to park about 100 yards away, as all the designated postal customer slots were full. The state employment office is also in the same center, as well as the county welfare office. There’s not a long line in the PO which makes me think that the local economy is going even deeper into the crapper, and I also guess people can’t read, either.
