DB continued

I've had a productive if somewhat irrelevant morning. I spent the time efficiently running online errands. Well, mush tasks, anyways. But they were all things that needed doing and, more to the point, I scheduled my morning for just such a purpose so, even if it's not "real" work, at least I successfully set a goal and accomplished it. Hurray for me.

I haven't heard anything back from the person to whom I submitted that conference paper proposal. A 'I've received it, you'll here back in 2 months' would make me plenty happy at the moment, just to set my mind at ease about email successfully finding its intended home.

This afternoon I'm going to try to see if Filemaker Pro will do. It doesn't begin to have the db power that going with SQL would - but on the other hand, I wouldn't have to spend a while writing my own interface for it. And the sooner I get around to doing real work the better. I'll see how I can do with it today. So that's the goal for the rest of today.

Tomorrow I'm off to the libaries on campus for an hour or two to nab some material for the professor for whom I've been RAing this year. Shouldn't take too long. Somewhere at home I have my hours sheet for that job. I just wish I knew where it was so I could be paid for it.... Hmm.
