My parents came by today and installed some shelves my dad had built me. My microwave and toaster oven are now off the counte and i have space!! Its amazing.
I’ve been working alot on TRC lately, updating the directory and the calendar. I’ve realized its time for an overdue project that I’ve been putting off. TRC runs on Drupal 7, which is becoming outdated. The site needs to get a major upgrade to Drupal 8.
This is by no means a simple process. You cant just upgrade – its a good bit of work. I’m starting to put together what needs to be done so I can start working on it. Its going to be awhile…
On the upside, Drupal 8 works MUCH better with mobile 🙂
Buddy went to the vet on Tuesday to get neutered. He did not have a great time, and spent two days hiding under my bed and futon. He pretty much hid as soon as I let him out of the cat carrier when I got home. He did try to come out later that night, but Mike’s dog Thor traumatized him and he didn’t come out for days. I eventually coaxed him out with some treats for a little bit.
On Friday, I broke down and took the Cone of Shame off. Buddy was immediately happy and started going back to his old self. He spent the first hour cleaning himself from head to foot. Since then, he’s been getting better every day. He’s currently sound asleep on my desk 🙂
So Buddy went to the Vet yesterday and got fixed. He’s been hiding under my bed since we got home. He did manage to get brave once last night and try to come out, but the friggen dog traumatized him into hiding under the futon in my office all night. Early this morning I heard him come back into my room, and he’s still there hiding under my bed.
I hate this 🙁
I spent the last 2 days completely overhauling my Imperial Senate Building. It always felt too small, and a bit crowded. It was also asymmetrical which bothered me.
The building now has a central dome, and two wings. The offices are much larger inside now too. As a side effect of this, I overhauled my large Map Room. I rearranged them and made the maps fit better, but I needed to expand a few to fill up the walls properly. This is where I ran into an ancient issue. The maps in the my Map Room were made eons ago, before they overhauled the map grid system. I couldn’t expand the maps, as new maps dont line up with the old ones. I had to redo ALL my maps. Luckily, two provinces turned out to be on the new grid system.
