The fun with the database vendor continues. Another group had a technical glitch and during the resolution of the glitch we found a larger problem. And another small problem. My coworker says that the product seems to be crumbling around us. Does it make sense that when you are trying to find records that fall on a certain date, say 3/28/2007, that you have to search for it as beginning on 3/28/2007 and ending on 3/29/2007? And to find things for today, you have to include tomorrow’s date. That’s the small problem–because now that I know, I can make it work. The larger problem is too much to go into here. Suffice it to say, they don’t have a ready answer for me and are doing further research.
Oh and they now have two uncompleted projects for us that have been pending for over a month. We’ve actually not paid the bill for one of them–the other hasn’t even gotten to the point where they would bill us.
I’m still having an off day with technology, but at least if I’m persistent and plow through, things are finally beginning to work–which is a vast improvement over yesterday.
In other news, I have finally started to lose my ankles during the day. I’m kind of strange in that my feet/ankles swell up over night and then go down during the day. Not so anymore–I’m looking more and more like the typical pregnant chick during the day too. And I can’t wear socks because then the swelling stays in my calf and it looks like some freak deformity. And they’re probably cutting off my circulation.
I’ve gained 28 pounds so far, but the books say that 10 of that is baby, blood, and placenta. They say that there’s an additional pound in my breasts, but both my DH and I can tell you that there’s considerably more than just an extra pound there–maybe an extra pound in each one! Each day I look in the mirror to see which half is poking out further! For the record, I’m not that worried about the weight–I know it will come off and that most of it is accounted for within the “normal” pregnancy range. It’s just that sometimes the number on the scale kind of freaks me out for a bit (and I want to know because I’m curious like that).
