i wrote the script. these things are much easier then i make them out to be. ended up writing it in perl because i've quickly come to the conclusion that bash scripts are worthless compared to perl scripts. perl is just so much more better for what i was trying to do, it turns out.

i think the next project i will do is editing my dvd list to be sortable. this will require learning a couple more things. mainly using perl with mysql. :)

for now, i guess i'll just go to bed.
merry christmas everyone.

mike woke me up and now i can't fall back asleep. ack. i'm still too tired to be awake. this seems ironically suiting, though, it being christmas and all. i used to wake up at 7 being so excited. now i just have insomnia. maybe i'll play a video game to pass the time.

everyone is awake, but we have to wait for my sister and brother-in-law to arrive before we can do any of this christmas stuff. everyone is just sitting around talking and my mom is making breakfast. christmas morning is always so boring before the gift stuff starts.

    have spent a while working with mysql. databases are interesting. i have been working on understanding the perl modules needed to work with sql, as well. perl modules are interesting as well. no wonder brad works with all this stuff.
    hopefully soon, i will have some things on the web to show for what i've been working on.

    i also took a short break and watched the end of any given Sunday. my brothers were watching it with my grandpa. that is a good movie.

    the dvd script is working now. i haven't written all the various sorting, but I've tested it in mysql and it shouldn't be that hard to add. the old list isn't there anymore, but i will be putting a redirect there shortly so that people who are following a link won't get a 404. haven't don't that quite yet, though.

    go see the new list at http://www.antispin.net/dvdlist.cgi. You may also notice the three dvds i got today have been added to the list. hooray! this is fun.

    update:
    it's now 6:15 and it sorts. next step is to add descending sort. i think it's almost dinner time, though.

    i can't work in my room because my older brother has gone to bed already. he's not feeling well. i feel sorry for him and all, but i'm iffy on sleeping in the same room as someone who is sick. also, i want to be in my room and work on my own computer.

    people are giving me a headache, too. i just want to hide in my room, but i fucking can't. arrg. it's really annoying. the bird is being loud as well. :(

    i think being locked up in the house all day is getting to me. but i don't want to go out, just stay here and work on this program. it's getting cooler.

    blah.
