So here we are at nearly 3:30 am, seems like a rather common place for me, tonight the culprit was an old PHP app which is showing growth pains (seems to be the usual culprit, sadly its all the same collection of apps in a big website) but I solved the issue in part.
It was creating far too many elements to toss into an array in a cookie, and at some point the garbage was overwhelming and not letting the actual new info in. Easy fix? Cut it down to 100 items displayed. Now customer will likely want those additional items displayed, but for starters? It’s allowing adding/removing – hoping it doesn’t fiddle with reports, but again this thing was not built with the idea this would ever happen.
I have another website I was tinkering with tonight, however, I think I am going to wrap up, thus why I am sitting at the workstation just taking some time to chill out and write. One of the reasons I have it setup. Now granted things are wobbly, I used this as a temp desk before my door desk, but I have a few desk options in mind to build (or get lazy and buy it at IKEA) 😀
Did manage to snag a $300+ monitor for half price, and it’s very crisp, clean and so far working smoothly (writing this using it) a lot nicer than my current monitor on the other desk, but another expense for another year as I doubt the other one is going to die, and it’ll work for now 🙂
Ramblings aside? It’s been a rough couple of weeks. A lot of stress, before I dug back into the code actually just stopped – took a minute, got my bearings and dug back in completing what needed to be done TODAY. More to do later once I wake up, praying things continue to improve and get better, need less stress.
