Where Old Code goes to Die

Well, I’ve started a million different projects and finished none, so in an effort to quell the sense of dis-ease I’ve went back to whatever seemed nearest to completion before I abandoned it…

…which has meant getting stuck back into Classic ASP and MS-SQL, not nice for a Linux-fanboy-wannabie like myself ;)

Captain Beefheart’s Trout Mask Replica has been providing much needed mental stimulation while I at least try to make some progress on this thing.

The Mascara Snake: “Fast and bulbous”
Captain Beefheart: “That’s right, The Mascara Snake, fast and bulbous. Also a tin teardrop.”
The Mascara Snake: “Bulbous also tapered”
Captain Beefheart: “That’s right”

I love it!

The road to wherever-it-is-in-the-IT-world-I-am-actually-heading-to is certainly proving frustrating, but hey, one day at a time. You never know, someday I might well get those 1337 sk1llz I’m lusting after.

On a lighter note, I just over-heard a member of staff phone the newest addition to get her to send an email to everyone in the office to let them know that new stationary has arrived (the email is in my inbox as I type), words escape me.
