  1. LB log - 20140427

    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.

  3. LB log - 20140424

    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 ...

    I spent the entirety of the early morning today getting the consolidated return completed, and no sooner than 3AM did I have the separate consolidated return done. It is most of the work and, since I know better now, I had enough foresight to copy those Forms to the remaining subsidiary directories so that I don't have to retype anything which remains and merely edit the figures to match the individual corporations to be filed. I also just spent some time right now to redo an attachment called the ...

    Work on the consolidated test return is proving to be very slow so far. It's good to have last year's approved return for guidance, as stated before and I will say again, but there are still some errors in the Test Scenario document itself which requires me to look over the submission data and compare to what they have to ensure everything makes sense.

    I played some PS3 D3 yesterday, and timed my arrival just as someone who I was looking to meet came on. As if he read my mind, he ...

    As it turns out, and as I was hoping on the basis of how the IRS system was handling it before, I had no issue in conducting test submissions in the course of the night. I was considering having a blow off night to play some D3 or such, but the cat demanded attention or to be within my field of view until 3AM, so after a while I decided to just go ahead with the next Form 1120 test submission and get it over with, which I did. All that remains is the dreadful consolidated return test submission. ...

    It's April 15 and the IRS system is still overloaded enough that I couldn't get the two acknowledgements I need back from them, despite trying for most of the day. I guess that means that I can't really continue with making the next 1120 test submission.

    I had an idea about doing something with using video glasses, the not head tracking VR kind with just a normal screen on the pair of eyes. It seems like there's none out there yet which allow a normal computer to hook up and display ...

    I extended my lunch break for forty minutes just to ensure that a client's return was properly filed. A last minute adjustment didn't help expedite matters. I spent the night prior fixing up a relative's return, and her's is one of the more complex returns that I've prepared this year, if complexity is measured in document count of the return. I'm just glad I didn't run with something before I was able to check all the facts and put something in which definitely wouldn't belong there and would have ...

    The deadline is approaching fast!

    One client is done, and the other shall await completion tomorrow once I have a PIN received. Everything is ready to go otherwise and I'm printing the necessary paperwork immediately after submitting this post.

    I'm glad I made the time to play some songs today, as the session was pretty good, even with the initial crash and second crash which happened just as things were getting into gear. Surprised by the fail of EVO66, but that's ...

    Right now it is the year 2014, and yet the Massachusetts state income tax form doesn't allow you to enter any values onto it electronically. No, if you want to use the form, you must print it out and fill in the values by hand, with a pen. 2014. This comes as quite a surprise! I managed to open it up in LiveCycle and put some simple fields down on top of it in a hurry so that I can do the work directly on the form and archive it, but it's a shame that I don't have enough time to do it right so that ...
