Today I filled in for a class, giving a tour and showing people the database at my old work.

The database, I would like to note, is not finished and doesn't work. Well, you can't use it to add live data. I have no idea what the proff/director thinks he is going to have people do with it. I told them that if the idea was to help SA, then what they could do, practically, was physically put codes on objects. If the purpose was to help them get familiarized with how archaeological data is organized, then putting info into the testing database could be useful. I don't think he actually understands that you can't use live data in the test database, because they use different pools to draw their unique numbers from - so if you have assigned an object, or a box, a code in the live database, it won't b recognized in the test database, and vice versa. And you can't even import other information, necessarily, because if the forms change or get renamed, information gets orphaned and it throws errors at you. And also there are so many bugs in the test database still that it was painful to try and show it off :p I did what I could :p

I wound up eat out for lunch and dinner - a burger at 5 Guys for lunch, and then a salad with grilled chicken and smoked bacon for dinner at the Early Bird. And then a bunch of junk (pop corn and a brownie sundae) at knitting. Knitting was fun - there were a few new people - and I got bunch done on my sock.

Also this morning I woke up to unexpected kitty cuddles, so that was nice :3 Apparently kitty was out roaming, so BiL opened my door to see if he wanted to come in. The downside was the allergy attack that came later, and having to wash my quilt and vacuum in my room. Stupid allergies :/
