Quadrually Productive

weather: sunny
outside: 21°C
mood: accomplished

Friday was a quadrually productive day. I got two automated tools running doing regression testing with a few hundred files. Eventually, it'll be thousands of files. Better a machine do it overnight than me, manually.

I wrote one other Perl script that takes the Performance run results, cuts it up, does some deltas, means, standard deviations, variances, (jeez, and I thought my Stats courses were just filler... who knew that the ANOVA would actually come in handy =). It spits it out into an Excel spreadsheet where I want it with different colours - ie. in red if the result is more than 3 from the norm, that kinda thing. That was total overkill, but the Project Lead had a laugh over my way-overkill-ness. S'all good =)

And while my scripts were running, I also worked on a new journal layout design for the zhongwen community. As a matter of fact, I'm sporting it on my own journal right now. =) Come see, and give me feedback. There are some details that I'm not too happy about, but I want to see if other people notice it too, or if I've just been staring at it too long.

I don't have access to do it in the zhongwen account, so I decided to test it out here first. I'll move it over once katie_ah approves =)

This morning, I went to Fitness Unlimited with Husband Guy and got myself added on to his membership as family. Worked out for half an hour while Husband Guy played basketball. Yay! Exercise is a good thing.
