  1. LB log - 20140504

    945PM and I can't even keep focus on anything. I probably should have just stayed in bed when seeing my wife to sleep earlier. 75 minutes later, I at least managed to get around on doing the code updates. Very minor changes were all I had until I got to the bottom of Public Law 113-97. http://beta.congress.gov/113/bills/h...3hr4275enr.xml . Looks like I have a new section to add as well as a fair quantity of changes to be made elsewhere. This new congress.gov layout is pretty nice, and ...

    What I actually should be doing before getting back into writing more ES roughs is to get the tax code page up to date, as I mentioned before. I looked at the classification tables a few days ago and didn't find too many individual sections which needed revision, but of course that doesn't inform me of exactly how much needs to be changed. But, still, I should do that first.

    Besides, there might be a lot more time for the former in the future regardless. She goes back to work tomorrow ...

    Still no IRS acknowledgement and the weekend is here. Individual tax season is done. I've been thinking about resuming it, so let's go.

    Draft.

    The snoring continued uninterrupted. She made a second attempt by bending over and speaking louder.

    Yes I did have to call the IRS today for them to give me my Software ID number, as I had no response in the mail. Just before writing this, I finished sending off the revised submissions to include the SID which I received. I didn't receive any acknowledgement for any of them, and I had given plenty of time for at least the first of them to come back as I saw my wife to bed after sending that one in and before getting the rest submitted. If I can't get any kind of resolution on how to get this issue ...

    I didn't get to exercise until 3AM yesterday thanks to having other things to do when I woke up. Doing that then going to bed only to wake up and do another hour today was ... nothing particularly special at all actually. I will say, I should have checked the questionnaire that the IRS sent me yesterday before going to bed, as it didn't have a Software ID provided on it, which means that I'll need to await for it to come back in a new response or call for one tomorrow.

    Songs. The ...

    I signed up at one of those survey sites recently, figuring that it would give me something to do while I sit here during idle moments instead of endlessly poking message boards. After a few misfires and rejections for not meeting the criteria for having a survey completed (which is honestly a bit surprising - are general consumer surveys worth a damn if you're selective of who you poll?), I finished one survey today about various car insurance products. It took about 30 minutes to do in total and ...

    A female coworker who's younger than me told me that she was into games like Call of Duty and Smash Brothers, and for some reason I have taken this as an opportunity to show off bits and pieces of my collection and my IIDX table and the like. I'm curious what her response will be. The main reason that I'm bringing this up here is because I have found myself having no issue in revealing all of this at the drop of a hat without any real fear of negative repercussions. I guess I've been reading too ...

    16. The funk is still there. It is still acceptable to sit anywhere at any time, which includes while riding elevators or in the middle of a store and refusing to move out of the way as other people walk around the obstruction. Even with a knife available, it is still acceptable to push food with fingers onto a fork. The word "immaculate" needed to be parsed into its individual syllables so that it could be pronounced.

    My wife informed about this later today - when we were ...

    Unable to get to a position to make this post until now. They're here, and everything is the same as it ever was. Regrettably.

    Songs were good today, in light of how distressing things were yesterday.

    Let's see what happens tomorrow.

    Lunar Beat. Extra Mode. Double play. "@" denotes Random chart modifier. All songs are of highest difficulty type unless specified.

    This is a weekend where we'll have our friendly out of state visitors in town, so the majority of today wasn't spent on much else beyond cleaning the house. I wonder how many passes of the basement carpet I could make before it would stop finding cat hair.

    In the meantime and otherwise today, I've spent most of it working on sorting out the music issues with the IIDX sim player. One interesting thing which I came upon today was that I was having an extraordinarily rough time of playing ...

    Going through these employment emails is an all too quick descent into depression. The only thing that these automated responses feel comfortable in throwing at me is entry level stuff which pays less than what I earn now doing the same kind of job that I do now at the retail store, or is for OTR trucking. I click over on one of the CDL carriers and their profiled new hire employees are people who lament that "they hire the 30 year old first" and declare that they "don't fit into ...

    It actually did take a bit longer than I expected for the last test return to be done, and I did not manage to get a clean submission on the first attempt. In my defense, however, it was because I followed the data given in the publication which had a line in a form that wasn't in the correct spot.

    When I went to my parent's place yesterday, I tended to the birdfeeders. There's two of them, each taking a different kind of seed. One of them has a top lid which just slides off, the ...

    Not only did I manage to get the two remaining corporation returns done that I mentioned yesterday, but they were both received without error on their first submission attempts. It's been a very long time since I managed to do that. All that remains is Test 1, which I'm working on now, and then I'll see about getting these officially reviewed for approval. I'll be sending the mail to the IRS after I get this finished.

    Otherwise, the structure of my day today was a slight reverse of ...

    Insert 420 joke here.

    I have no retail work scheduled tomorrow, and I'm going to commemorate that by not doing anything different than normal. At least, that's the plan so far. I was able to get the second of four consolidated corporate returns complete last night, this time only requiring two submissions to get to zero errors. The remaining two returns will have less content, so maybe if I push myself quickly enough I can be done with having some time to fart around on a game or ...

    I was in bed by 1130PM last night, and I was awake at 5AM this morning, but I don't have much of any recollection of specifically sleeping. I know there was one point in the night that I looked at the clock to see it was 2AM, and I don't remember sleeping directly before or after that point. My wife gets up for work at 4AM, and I recall that happening. Well, whatever, I should be plenty tired to get sleep tonight.

    I received a call from the organization which called me yesterday at ...
