Ray has been sick, Renee has been off her game, and I had a big deadline yesterday.

I made it, Renee is feeling much better, and Ray is too. He’s also being exceedingly two.

Project summary – United Way of Greater Greensboro wanted to accept donations online. Original programmer builds a lot,. but gets yanked into other project that requires more of his time. I get to finish the job – bugfixes, minor functional changes, etc.

They want to go live on Feb. 28 – on Feb 23. Fortunately, I’ve had time to get the code base figured out enough to not worry about breaking anything when I make updates.

Sat & Sun are total washes – Everyone except me isn’t feeling well, so I can’t work. I’m running low on time, There’s a most-of-the-day staff meeting Tuesday.

Now I’m not a late night person (anymore) – Ray gets us up around 7 AM, and goes to bed around 9 PM. So….

Pulled tow late nights, was applying patches up to the last second, and the donations went live around Noon on the 28th.


Now to finish the last few features they want, finish the administrator interface for another project, put dynamic content into the WUNC website, and build a prototype for a grant project.

Oh, and I need to catch up on my billing. Bigtime.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.
