I think I’ve cranked out about 2000 lines of brand new or edited code in the last 17 hours. My eyes ache. In the process, however, I’ve realised what I really like about web programming: it all just feels like such a big kludge. Writing server-side script that dynamically generates SQL/HTML/JavaScript, and passing variables about in URLs and things – it’s just not what the web was designed for, and for some reason that makes it a bit more exciting than simply calling Win32 API functions from a C++ program.

I’m not explaining this very well. And it’s really not doing my street cred any good. But I feel vaguely inspired now to really sort out this website, and I haven’t felt vaguely inspired about anything for a long, long time. So that’s gotta be good.
