My meetings are done!

My four-hour chunk of meeting are finally done for the day! And there are 40 minutes left in my workday. It had been my plan to write a fairly elaborate (and elegant) perl script that would parse some data and prepare it for import to a database. Because of my meeting, I got exactly 18 lines of the stupid code written.

I’ve got three hours of meetings on my calendar for tomorrow, and maybe that means I’ll be a bit more productive in terms of the data import. I’ve only got 2 meetings on my calendar for Wednesday, which is good because I don’t think there are going to be too many people around on Wednesday anyway.
