Feeling kind of lousy tonight.
Most of today's progress got stalled because it turns out the build was not really ready for Oracle to be installed. Unfortunately I somehow thought Patrick had gotten further than he really had before he left the company, and found out the hard way when Eric came back with a huge list of problems.
And I feel lonely. Nobody to talk to. Nobody to hang out with. Ick.
I tend to find that if you want to maximize productivity of your engineers, give them good tools.
