||Plans are made to be broken

|I was going to do a lot of programming today, but I'd forgotten that we were going to have company over. As a result, I didn't get that much done. Mom's friend stopped over, bringing fudge and kitty litter, and we talked for some time.
I looked over my code in the evening and I think I spotted the problem I was having yesterday. However, I also noticed that I might be committing overkill. A CLI program would work very well, but at the same time a GUI might be more comfortable to use. I'll have to ponder that in more depth tomorrow.
More developed on the LJ drama from yesterday. During the night there were a few rather interesting posts by all parties (including Ch'marr). Since everyone has had a say there's no more evidence to look at; the person that started this drama is without a doubt a troll and may well get hit with a lawsuit over this. The point also stands that the troll wasn't far off the mark; his claims are exaggerated, but to a point they are still valid. Some either need to be more careful of their wording or their attitude -- it's somewhat apparent that they simply are ignorant of how they sound to others.
In any event, this drama seems to be over for now; the troll has already moved on to other topics.
In other news, a study claims that being happy means you're not successful. Notably, they seem to measure "success" with money and sex. Successful people, according to this, have lots of money, good relationships (note the plural) and go on many dates (again the plural). Frankly, I disagree. I feel that happiness is the only worthwhile measure of success. The happier you are with your life, the more successful you are.
On the other side of the coin, the economy stinks. This is especially true in Second Life, where the banks were shutdown. Remember, in Second Life your virtual dollars are REAL dollars. D'oh !
