    Another weekend closes down. I am entering this post after finishing up a good 7 hours of being at work staring at the project that won’t build itself. Not all of this time has been spent on programming. I am still in a mental fog from sleep hunger and whatever else is stifling my...

I’ve felt chronically tired since stepping in the office Tuesday morning, and it has been an overall tired, complete with a hunger for sleep, a mushy mind, two golfer’s elbows, achy arm muscles, and a...

    It’s Sunday evening, about 8:40, and I am tapped out. For the middle of a holiday weekend, I feel drained, and as if there is not enough time to get done what I need to get done. It was my hope to get headway made on one pressing project at work, and another one...
