Whatever doesn't kill me will make me stronger
Words to live by.
I'm having a bit of a time of it of late. Work is not going swimmingly well. I mean I am working well but not getting everything I need to get done actually done as I get sucked into other projects. Unfortunatley at work they have found my weak spot. Ego. Appealing to it, and me for help is hard for me to turn down.
Meanwhile the fires of The Flu ™ swirl around me, especially on the home front where I am trying to avoid getting sick as best I can because that will really sink my work schedule.
And on top of all that Sarah is having more troubles with her Mac. The latest fiasco is that caused by simply this. The TCP stack in OSX is an EPIC FAIL. Previously I had encountered a bunch of shenanigans with AirPort, whereby when the connection would drop and reset, which happened frequently (for mysterious reasons known only to Mr Jobs) the whole OS would lock up. Now hard-wired it's having problems when it resets the DHCP lease. Namely it is somehow fouling up the MTU size so that it ping and email work but everything else goes out in too large a packet size and vanishes into the ether.
So well done on Apple on successfully implementing a full-on implementation of the stability of the Windows 96 TCP stack.
So that's me.
On a plus side I believe I have done things with CSS now, for internationalization and cross-browser purposes that are actually pretty cutting edge. So that's a plus.
