This morning, I was chasing down a bug in some python code, fatal errors like this
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xe2 in position 193: ordinal not in range(128)was getting tickled in some debug logging code (IOW, it wasn't even what the codes core purpose was but a bug in the bebuggerin). I put some proper exception handling in the debug logging and voila: bug gone. It's great when things work!
Working on that over breakfast made me kinda late and I needed to drive into town today 'cause tonight I'm gonna see some friends from the old school. I'm gonna be late! I probably won't be able to pick up any carpoolers.
I rolled into the carpool pick-up near the Orinda BART station, waited a few minutes and promptly got two riders. The radio was warning about an injury accident on the upper deck of the Bay Bridge... darn, I'll be late rolling into The City. Well, I get to The Bridge and alles goot. I made into San Francisco in good time and got to what I needed to do. It's great when things work!
