Proposal blues,drupal(!) and a quiz…
Writing/making a proposal calls for a certain set of ‘left brain’ skills that I just don’t possess. Painstaking labour is the result. Once upon a time, I used to think making proposal ppts is terribly boring and painful. I still think so, with the caveat that it is so only for me. I guess the thing is it is so for me, because it doesn’t come naturally.
I get these techie urges off and on. Sometimes they pass, sometimes they don’t. When they don’t, they are partially painful, partially satisfying. So, I installed xampp and drupal on my laptop over the last 5-6 days. Took a while to get drupal working with those configuration files and dependencies on the xampp apache, but yesterday, google helped me fix the most troublesome issue. But, I don’t know what to do, now that it is working. I don’t know PHP, so there is not much I can do with it, unless I decide to learn it. Good joke. I guess, a month later, I will unistall both. Lol, I am such an ass sometimes.
Won yesterday’s quiz at the office (the “friday fun” thing I have written about earlier). Two more free movie tickets, that’s the good part. The bad part is I need to do something next friday. Last time, the jumble thing was well received. Wonder what I should do this time. I don’t want to do a quiz, ‘cos it’s not really too popular, though it suits me fine. I guess the thing is people want to have half an hour’s fun, and tough to crack trivia is not really the idea of fun for most people. Any ideas? Only criteria is it should be a game simple enought that it can be played online (in a chat room), and it shouldn’t take me more than half an hour to prepare for it. 🙂
Today afternoon, I should get my cycle, hopefully.
