|And now I am smart...I mean tired

So I found myself unable to get to sleep last night after I was in bed. I think it was a combination of being wrapped up in a small computer project right before bed and having a lot of caffeine (although I had finished my last coke by 8 or so, which I thought was OK since I didn't end up going to bed until midnight). And my throat was bothering me, as it has been for the last two weeks because of allergies. Ugh.
I got up, drank some water (which helped the throat) and worked another level of the Python Challenge (I'm up to level 4...), which is a lot of fun if you like programming (and Python :-) ). That was enough to get me back to sleep a bit later. So I'm tired today, but it isn't as bad as I thought it was gonna be.
Work's going pretty well - I'm on track to finish my project by the end of the week. Unfortunately testing has brought to light some unrelated issues that I may or may not be responsible for. We'll see!
(more del.icio.us evangelization next time...)
yay, I got past level 0! I think this will be fun.
finished 1-3 using Excel, Access, and Textpad, respectively (cheating perhaps, but those are the programs I know best). Looks like I might actually need Python for #4.
the only ones that require Python are 5 and 23 (whatever "require" means...)
I got somewhere around level 10. Needed to cheat on one or two of them, as I recall (numerical sequence - you know when you get there). Haven't looked in a few weeks - been too busy with other puzzles.
BTW, finally got some python code at work. Managed to slip it in since it was PyQt (much easier to write with Qt than with Tk) and only about 100 lines of python. Just a user-friendly frond end to our web based trouble ticket system. Now, of course, they want Enhancements.

Re: Python Challenge
That's cool. We use python for some odds and ends around here, which is nifty...
has been trying to sneak python into our tools for ages now... Why is it that python users always seems so evangelical? Remember Andy, ptevis
, and Tim back at Rice? (Or were you too young...?)
