we only come out at night...

coffee break...

okay I admit it, I slept last night. and woke up and ate breakfast slowly to give myself a mental break. Then I set to work here around 10 a.m. and TOTALLY crashed around 6. Just couldn't think. My head spun and my brain stopped functioning every time I looked at the circuit board, it was awful.

So I went and saw Dave, he's been gone all weekend and we missed each other. 1.5 hour snuggle and chat. mmm.

Felt good, came back. Brought coffee maker (horray!) and determination. I have less than 10 hours before presentation time now... oh good lord...

Status report:
PIC code ironed out........ DONE
Board soldered............. DONE
Board in case.............. NOT DONE (Will wait until morning when partner comes I think)
Strain gage conditioning... DONE
Software to read whole thing... NOT DONE but it MUST be done before I can think about anything else! am using qbasic (sorry, but it's what people around here seem to know) and keep getting I/O errors on serial port even though hyperterminal reads it all just fine. ARHG!

you know, in my four years of college, I have never pulled an all-nighter? heh.
