The meaning of 'but'

This isn't related to the rest of this entry.What does the word 'but' mean in practice?Suggestion: If we consider <A> but <B>, it suggests not drawing normal conclusions/action from a, as the forthcoming data b has an impact on the conclusion a would normally suggest.

Work. So much to do. I'm not wading any more -- the watter is up to at least my neck. There's just too much to do. I still think the difficulty level is fine, but the quantity is likely too great. I wish there was a way for me to get them to hire Jason as a backup to me to ease my burden. He'd probably fit in well, and although he doesn't know as much as I do, he knows Unix well enough that for most of what I'm doing, he could do the same. Alas, Jason lacks a car, and he could only be part-time. Still, it would be really cool.

Apparently someone at work found my webpage. I'm a bit nervous about this. I would rather keep my personal life seperate from my work life, if at all possible. Largely, I don't want to create interpersonal problems with anyone there. I suppose being part of the internet (somewhat less metaphorical than you'd think) means that preventing the overlap isn't possible. *shrug*

Leon and Quealy invited me Hounddogs, but I couldn't leave work. I haven't really had a chance to talk to them for about 4 months. They're going to their homes soon too. Argh. Oh well, they're probably relieved -- I keep getting the vibe that I'm more of an irritant to them than anything else. Oh well.

My work schedule changed, but it's still pretty cool. I do need to iron out the Friday philosophy thing -- I approved the change without thinking about it, and the new schedule would prohibit the philosophy meeting and put a big damper on going to Outland.

Got a gamecube. It's delayed me still further from turning the endless nuggets of philosophy I jot down into the essays they deserve to be.

I'd wrote more, but I'm hungry. Carpe naniga tabemasu! (cringe)
