It's been said that busy folks don't keep journals. But whether or not that's true, I much prefer doing stuff to writing about doing stuff.
So I'm going to try something different. Here's the highlights of what I did over the past seven days:
- Made an eight-hour round trip to retrieve four more boxes of discontinued flooring, finally having enough to make the bedrooms match the rest of the house
- Disassembled the dishwasher for the third time in as many weeks
- Got the lawn mower running again, which entailed disassembling and cleaning the carburetor, using a cordless drill to start it owing to a chewed-through pull string. Oh, and zip ties
- Mowed 0.4 acres of weeds and underbrush (another 0.3 to go!)
- Tidied up the rat's nest of wires behind my desk and put most of them in conduits to keep the kitten from ruining anything else
- OS upgrades on an embarrassing number of computers
- Discovered I have been directly exposed to someone with COVID-19. Joy.
- Upgraded Gerrit from 2.13.x to 2.14.x and cleaned up the fallout
- Various quality-of-life improvements and wart removals on the WWW site
- Identified a fix for the longstanding problems with iFlash CF/SD adapters popular with older iPods
- Triaged and closed several numerous tickets and patches
- Fixed a longstanding FAT32 bug exacerbated by another recent commit
- Fixed a large pile of TTS-related bugs, especially relating to non-English languages, and added multi-language voice generation to the daily builds
Hopefully I can sustain this type of update. Gotta keep busy, after all..
