kinda what it feels like inside a trishaw (three-wheeler, tuk-tuk, bajaj)
this is a trishaw at rest
Today I woke up to drop off the Google graphic at the Leisure Times. This day is already odd cause it’s 10 am and I’m awake. Then I go home to hopefully get unconscious again, but Sudesh comes over to work on Amma’s database, so there we go.
We’re trying to create a database that’ll store vocational-ed courses on one side and a job classifieds on the other side. If there’s 30 IT jobs there’ll be a bar 30 px long on the right side. If there are 100 IT courses there’ll be a bar 100px long on the left side, etc. It’s a relational database so if you’re looking at a job it will (theoretically) link you to the courses that can help you get that job, and vice versa. We’re trying to write it in php/mySQL – with the catch that I don’t know php/mySQL, but it’s not that hard to learn. Sudesh learns faster than I do and he writes it, so it’s really not that hard at all. I drink some tea to wake my ass up cause I have another meeting downtown at 3:30. I tuck my shirt in and go.
Someone at the Sunday Times finally freed up money for the IT Magazine I’m trying to launch, so I met with Pragathi to finalize the request for computers and office space and stuff. He showed me the offices available and I’m thinking I don’t want an office at all. We could just buy a bunch of laptops and roam between the 4 or 5 WiFi hotspots in Colombo. Right now we is me, a blogger, and a bunch of free-lancers, so it’s not like anyone would be in an office anyways. I also can’t wake up before noon.
