- I usually listen to my modern rock music Pandora station, which has a lot of stuff from the 90s on up.
- I sometimes delve into Otep and Kittie and suchlike, all shrieky rock with melodicness involved.
- Often, if I'm too busy or the phones are too frequent, I listen to techno.
- Yesterday I was on a Deltron 3030 kick.
- Today has all been Dr. Hook, Grand Funk Railroad, BS&T, 3 Dog Night, and so forth.

Coworker: I am constantly surprised by your musical taste.
Xtina: Are you dissin' on Blood Sweat & Tears?  There's a law against that.

(a) I'm considering, vaguely, seeing a career counselor.  Partly for the novelty, it's true.

(b) "Counsel" is giving advice, and "council" is a legal body.  I plan to associate "counsel" with "advise", so that I can ever &%($ remember the difference.

I am ISO a PHP session/accounts tutorial or open-source thing.  I need these things:

* login/logout, dur
* session timeout
* account levels
* a full-name field
* some way of including login checking on each page I include things on
* not fifteen different files just to do this

Not much else.

I am also looking on my own, and have found a couple of things, but a number of them are insufficient, or wretched, or both.  For example, this script is fairly straight-forward and simple, but lacks the easy ability to incorporate accounts into it.

The whys. )

Dear god.  I hate Mondays because it reminds me that everyone talks, all the time, with no apology and no signs of ceasing.

Also, to everyone who calls in with a purchasing or related credit or debit card issue:

HAVE YOUR GODDAMN CARD OUT.

Gah.  I need to find information on the laws in the US, and in Oregon, for how businesses must store credit card data in their databases -- encryption, length of time, whatever the hell.

I'm in the process of Googling this now, but if someone happens to know off the top of their head where some good info is, that'd be awesome.

Unrelated project: syncing Firefox's custom dictionary between computers.

The problem with writing a testing plan for this accurséd program is that there are approximately one million different ways for it to go.

The bright side of only getting two hours of sleep, and so giving up on the whole deal and getting to work early:

I got my inbox down from 200 emails to 36, and I've plowed through a lot of back-work with the invoices.

I have just now finished with invoice emails (not calls) from last week, leaving only ones from this week as well as any invoice calls.

Me and a coworker:

C: And why do [our new health insurance overloards] have to move the money to a special bank account?
X: "Here, we'll take care of your bank account, and health insurance details, and your job and car, and you can just sit at home!"
C: *snorts*  And apparently, we're gonna get a special kind of healthcare card.  What the fuck is this about?
X: Well, it's tied into this healthcare savings account, so when you buy your smokes, they know to crank up your rates.
C: ...
X: *cracks up*
C: *cracks up*

Ah, cynicism.

I have a daft question, because I don't use OpenOffice but I'm using it now, and I don't have the time to track this down and verify it.  (I'm in the zone.)

Is there a way of making notes around text, much like one can add comments to cells in Excel?  Ideally, can I also find these notes easily later, somehow?

I'm writing up my presentation for work, and I have some things I want to note for testing before I go presenting it.
