07:43 pm - Javelina exhibit at work - now open again

javelina behind chainlink

The desert loop trail has only just reopened since the javelina bite incident several months ago, and the wire mesh barrier is still being replaced. Meanwhile, the javelina are in a temporary chainlink fence enclosure.

They haven't changed the signage which you can see on my flicker page.

I'm starting a new work project to convert our docent tracking system's front end from Microsoft Access to being web-based, using HTML/Javascript/PHP. The data was always in a MySQL database, so no conversion required there. I'm looking forward to it. It's quite a challenge to keep the look and functionality exactly the same. We're hoping to roll it out without anyone noticing the difference. There's some interesting features, like having HUGE arrow buttons next to select boxes, because the built-in scroll arrows are too small for many of our docents to be able to use. And did I mention the HUGE fonts?

In other news ... I'm really sleepy. I can't do late nights any more.

...except the PostgreSQL migration, right? ;)

Oh, I wish! I so miss my PostgreSQL days...

I can always sneak that in afterwards, when no-one is looking. ;-)

Happy to find you here again...

People don't tend to be the best at following instructions even when they're for their own good, it seems!

I found some other photos in your Flickr I really enjoyed; I never thought I'd see underwater photos of beaver!

In trying to go from working nights for 30 years to something of a day schedule, my wife has been picking on me for going to bed before she does and sleeping later than she does...it's really hard to break old habits!

Thanks, Alan. If you're ever in Southern Arizona, be sure to drop by and see the underwater beavers for yourself!
