The more I have

Why is it that if I have a lot of work to do I get nothing at all done? If I’ve got nothing to do, I do nothing. If I’ve got something to do, I do it. If I’ve got loads to do, I do nothing again. This is a weird discrepancy.

You’d think that having lots to do would mean that lots of stuff gets done. But no! What it means is that you stare, bewildered and tongue-tied, at the black and looming wall of stuff vying for your time and just blink like a rabbit caught in headlights. And then spend an evening reading the Straight Dope archives rather than actually writing code.

Just for stuff at the forefront of my mind, I’ve got xPlod2, shifting Kryogenix to use a real DB for speed until xPlod2 exists, my 5K entry, and rewriting Euterpe, the mp3/ogg jukebox. So I should just get ON with these jobs, and I can’t seem to get to grips with any of them.

Especially since my 5K entry works in all *my* browsers but everyone else reports bugs. I hate checking stuff in lots of browsers, although VMWare might make it easier… ——-
