Music, Mojo, and Logins

Was just talking with my musician friend again.. he reminds me a lotof Charles. I miss Charles... Anyhow, we talked about the relationshipbetween moods, creative energy, making music, and inspiration. It wasa good talk, but hard to summarize. I'm glad I did so much music whenI was younger -- otherwise I wouldn't be able to have such interestingconversations with musicians... I really should start playing somethingagain...

Oh, yes, the development version of my BLOG, on my laptop, now has loginsfully working. It turns out that handling a POST request required verylittle additional coding. For those of you that arn't geeky enough to know,most of the time, when you're interacting with a webpage, your browser is usingGET requests, where it simply provides the hostname and the document path,and the server usually hands it over. Occasionally, when you're dealing withforms, or uploading files, it uses another type of request, where instead ofjust sending that data, it also provides key-parameter values in a specialformat (no, CGIs like altavista are usually still done with GET requests).Anyhow, it wasn't hard to parse those requests, so at least locally, I havea login button, and logging in changes to my test monochrome colour scheme.Now I need to make a screen for users to edit their preferences and info,so logins will be useful. At that point, I'll probably sync to my actualBLOG -- there's no real point doing it earlier. I think it'll be prettyeasy to add comments after that. Oh, yes, apparently, my code for settingtemporary cookies doesn't work. I'll need to figure that out soon --I really want to use cookies that expire on browser close instead of long-livedones.. but for now, long-lived cookies are ok.

It's SO COLD out right now. It's not a good time to be doing programmingoutside of Coffee Tree... and it's just going to get colder. I'll needto switch from fall jackets to my winter coat soon if I keep up the latenight trips here.

Well, I'm gonna try to get my psych homework done and maybe do some morecoding for work before I go to bed.. not yet sure if I'll give in to the coldand do that at home or not..Brrrrrrr
