– – listened to interesting talks
– – posted some pictures and choice quotations
– announced my impending resignation from my job
– solved a problem in some perl code at work:
– – two bugs were interacting in such a way as to make each other invisible
– – because data was being duplicated in places where it wasn’t supposed to be
– – and the duplication of information made the bug harder to track down
– – for the same reasons that non-normalized databases are vulnerable to errors
– and now I have a project idea: a Data::Doctor module
– – that looks through people’s data structures
– – for telltale signs of redundancy and encourages good data hygiene
