On The Sabbath

Posted March 04, 2007

We found out yesterday that the usual host family for our church fellowship are sick, and so we hurriedly cleaned house in preparation to host it ourselves again. Then we headed out for a prearranged soccer match with some friends of my brother. Since my oldest brother is in town we had the seven boys as well as our little cousin and two volunteers from their team. The first half ended 1-1 and we hoped to come back strong. Unfortunately I pulled my left calf muscle early on and had to sit out for a few minutes before coming in to play injured. With about five minutes to play and the game tied at 5-5 we agreed to play golden goal, meaning next goal wins. They scored a while later on a looong shot that arced over Dads head and scored for the win. We all had a fun time and agreed that we should have a rematch sometime.

Then today I woke up to learn that my littlest sister was throwing up during the night and church is getting moved yet again. It sounds like were not going as people are still sore and in no mood for another drive. So as Im typing this were getting a big sabbath brunch going with eggs, grits, sausage, and biscuits. Please pray that Sarah gets well soon and that everyone recovers from their injuries and soreness quickly. I for one am still limping up and down the stairs.

PyWeek is getting closer, and I think Im ready for it. I packaged much of the functionality from our first two games into a single code library that will be eligible for use in the upcoming competition. I was planning on doing it solo this time but have since then heard from an old team member who might partner with me. Im still waiting on a response from him.

Ive also put in some more work on this site and Email Chaperone which is very much still a work in progress. Ive added lots of AJAX functionality already and plan to make it a very dynamic website. This website now has comment features, archives, and a public meebo me window.

I hope and pray that yall have a blessed sabbath.
