10.06.2008 – Tuesday 10 June – New Job
- • Up early to get to the airport by nine o’clock. I arrived over half an hour early, traffic being better than last time, taking about half an hour. I discovered that there’s a runway viewing area up at General Aviation.
- • I attended my interview, and was offered a position, pursuant to reference checks and so forth.
- Later Morning
- • I have phoned previous managers, who have agreed to provide references.
- • Maz had stayed home from work, so I drove up to his place, took him to KFC for lunch, had a Hungry Jacks veggie burger myself, and watched some Stargate at his place.
- • I ordered pizza, picked Bronwen up from Kangaroo Cliffs, picked up the pizza, ate the pizza while watching Top Gear, dropped some DVD’s back to the DVD store, and drove Bronwen home.
- • What started as a quick little site-fix-up turned into an idea—to add categories to my journal. Now I appear to have accidentally stayed up all night, refactoring and entirely redesigning the way my journal works. In theory, it now has “set” support. Sets are a cross between categories and keywords—each entry can belong to one or more sets, and the display view can be filtered based on these sets, combined with a year and one or more months. I plan to add a few more custom views, such as the previous “Highlights” and “Summary” views, and probably a “most recent X days” view, and I suppose anything else I happen to think of. In theory it’s fairly flexible. In reality, I’ve been up all night hacking away at something I had slowly built up over several years, so I’ll quite likely wake up and realise I’ve neglected to take something vital into consideration and none of it will work.
