The wife designed her own Access database and wanted my help connecting a many to many relationship. Bonus points to her for remembering what I taught her. She didn't have any columns/tables with special characters in the name (this time), again a win.
I spent the next 90 minutes cussing in my head (kids around) trying to make it work. I finally hung my head in shame giving up. She spent the rest of the night watching Youtube videos till she figured it out.
I'm not sure if I'm a failure for not figuring it out, or a genius for quitting so she won't want my help with the next part of this project.
I posted earlier about a technical failure I had faced when presented my competition. I figured it had ruined my chances altogether and that I would not progress to nationals.
Well, I was wrong, my team and I barely made it to nationals . We placed fourth, and only the tops four at state can go to nationals. I'm kind of cringing at the 1st place tech stack of a LAMP back-end on GoDaddy with an Objective-C App though. I guess now we are going to migrate from Parse and buy an Apple VGA adapter .
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

...Herself has just sent her second ever SMS...and it took her about 20 minutes, copious swearing, and several "technical support" screams of frustration: "Where's it gone?!?!" (Screen timeout), "How do I send a comma?" (that key there, the one with the comma on it, yes), "Why did you capitalise that?" (because it's after a full stop), and the best "Send the elephanting thing you elephanting elephant!" (tap the "send" button - that one, looks like a split arrow head; yes, that one. No, tap it. It doesn't work with evil stares.)
At this rate, she should be proficient in about, oooo, six years...
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
