Troubles

It’s lunch time and I’m inhaling tomato and basil soup whilst sinking up to my eyeballs in <?php> code. There’s more windows open on my Mac than I can count and even using spaces it’s a bit of and exercise to get enough dual display desktop space to juggle all the things that are going on. Of course things aren’t necessarily going to plan either. Why is x happening if I do y, when it shouldn’t be. Why isn’t z working at all?

I’m solving issues but just finding more. Is it time to start a clean sheet? Or do I push on to the end. It’s a bit like a mountain biking mechanical when you’re in a situation that’s as far from home, help or civilisation as you could be and either tracking back or pushing forward are going to be as tough as each other. This afternoon is booked up with meetings and my productive roll is shortly going to come to an end. Why does it always happen like this? I take a quick look at iTunes. It’s paused mid way through a track, Troubles by Alicia Keys. How appropriate.

    Yay fixed the issue from Friday :)

    Also spent the weekend playing around with RSS feeds and integrating them into WordPress. Came up with some cool utilities that I’ll add in as part of upgrading this site to WP2.5. Worked on some other stuff too having installed the rather excellent MAMP. MAMP installs a local server environment in a matter of seconds on your Mac OS X computer, be it PowerBook or iMac. Like similar packages from the Windows- and Linux-world, MAMP comes free of charge. Installed in the typical Mac fashion:, i.e. it just works. MAMP doesn’t compromise any existing Apache installation already running with your OS X. You can install Apache, PHP and MySQL without starting a script or having to change any configuration files and if MAMP is no longer needed, you can just delete the MAMP folder and everything returns to normal. Michael Doig has written an installation guide and it really is that simple.
