As Promised…

Nothing too much to write, mostly because I’m sick and quite tired, and it’s a little warm but I’m having temperature issues so I don’t want to turn the AC on. We’re both sick actually, got sick a the same time, and seem to be progressing through the symptoms at roughly the same pace as well. I hope she’s sleeping alright though. It’s been a VERY busy 2 weeks, what with Tsinghua MBA Orientation and all that. I’m sure at some point, or not even, there’ll be details about all that’s gone on, but suffice it to say it’s been busy, and educational, for the most part. This last 3rd week might be superfluous, and just too much, but whatchagonnadoeh? She actually leaves for a “Outward Bound” tomorrow, overnight. I honestly can’t wait until the normal school year starts and she gets some free time back, because she doesn’t have any now in orientation…

But the “as promised” bit is that at some point I mentioned I’d consolidate into a separate MP3 player all the songs I recorded for her while she was away, and I have. I mucked around in WordPress, though about writing a custom plugin to generate the XML playlist file, or forcibly access and muck around in the MySQL, but both solutions seemed, complicated. Instead I’m using the built in WordPress functions to grab the data, format it properly, then just copy and paste it into a static playlist file. [shrugs] Not nearly as elegant, but sufficient and simple, and it’s even more important as I just realized my “Maria in NYC Music Project” posts don’t actually say what the song title is that I recorded for the day so there’s no easy way to browse, but it’s up now, the new MP3 player that is, and that’s the salient point of this post, so I’m going to go back to hacking up a lung and not being able to sleep.
