Codepage related as in character encodings?

What's the issue? Send me a PM if you want to keep it out of the threads.

sorta like character encodings...

It's actually not too big a deal, just annoying mostly. There was support added to be able to specify number of characters instead of number of bytes so that it's easier to use multibyte characters and some checks weren't added in places that needed them.

Gotta keep it kinda vague because I don't know how much is company confidential. It's not too big a deal on the technical side, but it's just annoying so I felt like complaining :D

Today is my second day in a row waking up at 2:00 AM. When kids don't sleep well, neither do their parents...

I'm watching a youtuber play The Sims 3 with one guy and 7 babies in a small apartment, so I know all about that! (not)

I actually have no idea how that got there. That's really strange.

Thanks, it did get better :)

Hope you do get some sleep. Sleeping like a baby is such a wrong idiom.

It really is.

I got to sleep until around 4:30 this morning, so it was a bit better. I also rode my bike to work instead of driving, because the weather is being cooperative.

That's nice. It's been really good weather last couple of days here as well. Trying to be more active myself, went on a walk (trip?) yesterday and took this picture.

Going to Gran Canaria next week. It will be a short trip, but will hopefully be fun and relaxing.

Tonight we engage in the archaic practice of setting our clocks forward one hour to honor the great American god, Benjamin Franklin. We still practice daylight savings time because the U.S. government thinks that by cutting off a strip of the top of a blanket and sewing it to the bottom of the blanket, the blanket somehow magically becomes longer. :roll:

Today, I've essentially been awake since 2:00 AM because young children, and I have some big things due at work. I'm here because I need to relax my mind slightly before getting back to work.

I got done with the thing yesterday, and today I got temporarily pulled from that project, which is a good thing. That project's in a different department from mine, and my department needed me due to vacancies (which are being filled, but the new people need to be trained). So yeah. Less stress for me for a couple of weeks.
