In early
Got in at 7 this morning. Got up at 6, and hrafn was nice enough to drive me into work (and then go back to bed, I assume). She's off until January 2, and she needs the car today to do some more shopping. I'll probably stay at work until 4:30 or until I get tired of it. Or until they close the building, if they end up deciding to close the building early. Of course, since I got here at 7, I could work a full day and leave at 2, but we'll see how productive I'm feeling. Getting an extra couple of hours in would be good, too, since I have an hour and forty-five minutes left to make up from taking off a bit early on Friday.

Things seem to be working just fine with my script to get user names. I had gotten some errors from one of the runs last night, and it added some communities, which it's not supposed to. Now that I think about it, what probably happened was that some pages didn't load, and it assumes something isn't a community unless it finds <title>Community Info</title> on its userinfo page. So, if that page didn't load, it would just assume it wasn't a community and then add it. So, I should probably throw in some code to spit out the user names where pages failed to load, or somehow automatically handle them.

Working more today on entering changes into the files for Chapter 3. I found problems yesterday with some of the files. Some were similar to problems I've had with some files in Chapter 1, and some were similar to problems the co-worker had with some files in Chapter 2. Neither of us has heard back about these problems, and I don't rally expect to hear back until at least the end of this week, more likely the end of next week. So I'll just work in the files that I can, and then I'll move on to proofreading Chapter 5.

I had to eat and shower because I have a dr. appt at 9:30, so no, I didn't go back to bed, even though I wanted to and if I had I could have only slept a little while AND had to set my alarm (which I didn't hear this morning, btw, I just luckily woke up and thought to check the time) so it would have been less sleep than I wanted and why torture myself like that, when instead I can whine about it at you? ;)

A thought...

You could maybe solve the communities issue by acquiring the 'friends of' list instead of the 'friends' list. Of course, some people turn off their 'friends of' list, so that might not be an ideal solution.

Re: A thought...

Yeah, I thought of that and dismissed it, for the very reason you mention. I suppose I could use the "Friend of" list first if it's there, then only use the "Friends" list if the other one isn't there. It might speed things up a bit. We'll see how I feel about it when I next take some time to work on it. Speaking of speeding it up, I wonder how difficult it would be to have this log me in and get these as myself, so that I could take advantage of the fast servers. Hmm.
