"That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the absence of grace."
-- William Gibson, All Tomorrow's Parties
"I'll let it pass, and hold my tongue."

Why the hell can't I sleep for more than four hour stretches?

I'm sure I've complained about this before, and it's not a really common thing. But when it happens, it goes on for weeks at a time, until I can't even see straight.

I sat down yesterday and made a list of things to do at work. It was an entire page long, and didn't cover things like "updating documentation" where there is documentation, or creating some where there isn't. Most of it's about a year old, though little has actually changed in terms of architecture or operation.

No progress on system so far this week.

No motion on anything at all.
