I'm back from Virginia and from Catskill, and it's really nice to be in my own surroundings again (not that Catskill isn't, but ...there's something to be said for one's own computer and bed.)

I'm at work, and Outlook is being its usual piece-of-unresponsive-shit. This laptop's already been rebooted 3 times today, too: 2 normally, once because it BSoD'd - anyone who tells you that XP does't bluescreen is full of shit.
I'm halfway between being chronically pissed off and chronically lazy, just to spite everyone. I've gotten 2 calls within 15 minutes of each other, both ostensibly just "asking where I was in terms of the issues I'm working on", but both really to pester me about a certain issue requiring a code fix, and why isn't said code fix done omg!

Quite frankly, it isn't done because once I found out what the problem is, it went to the bottom of my list of things to do. If they want me to do the actual code fix, they'd better resign themselves to not getting answers about the other issues for the next few days (never happen).

My TTD list, so that you all understand, is ordered thusly:

Stage 1: Old things which have no explanation yet.
Stage 2: New things which have no explanation yet.
Stage 3: Things which have an explanation, but need work.
Stage 4: Analysis of existing conditions, etc. Non-immediate work.
Stage 5: Stuff that I forgot about, or which is so old I figure pretty much everyone else has.

The issue in question is there, in Stage 3. The calls today have been regarding its sudden elevation to Stage 0 (not pictured). This is otherwise known as Stage OMG!!!!!!!!!11, and is possibly my least favorite, ever.

So, yeah. While juggling several IM conversations, our memory hog of a CM tool and my total lack of email, this day has taken a turn for the confusing =/

I'll obviously need to get at least the code, and possibly some of the testing, done before I leave today. I'm running a series of massively long SQL queries to determine just how bad the regression testing for this will be, and I just got some results which suggest that it will be bad indeed.
