I've been doing lots of short sleep cycles adding up to sometimes enough hours a day but there haven't been too many nights where I've just slept a full eight hours. Largely 3-5 hours a couple times a day. Or not.
As for more interesting news, for work I've started working with Postgresql. It cetainly is a feature-rich DBMS. It has a "CIDR" type for storing network addresses. (I'm impressed.) Its definately different from MySQL but already I'm seeing plenty of trade-offs just in the features (I haven't gotten to observing performance difference).
Its fun stuff anyhow. Must be time for me to go back to work. Heck, I may even post again *within* two weeks.
