2016, fenris + phoenix

thegradekeeper.com

not that anyone cares, except maybe Amy, who's off on a wonderous vacation to Indiana with her sister (Julie) to visit her aunt (Nancy)...

I did some "necessary" "repairs/upgrades" to thegradekeeper.com. There were major performance issues with the database. I've moved them out of the database and into java. Need to run a profiler at some point, but it's a solid order of magnitude better (2 seconds for a particular page instead of 15), only shooting up to 20% java instead of 50% java and 40% postgresql.

I took a nap when I got home from work. That kinda sucked. (woke up, went to work, came home, went to sleep. really, no inbetweens other than 20 minutes doing a sketch). But then I woke up just a few hours later and couldn't get back to sleep. So ... yeah. At least I read a bunch more of my opengl book. I made it past stuff I don't care about, read stuff I do, skipped more I don't, and am just getting back into the do (ish; DirectInput and DirectSound... :shudder: )

Now it's time to go to work.
