Tonight I'll post a list of assignments that I have that are pending. I'll also give a short explanation of the delay. I have to go to work (I mean my regular job) now.

I've been really busy recently mostly with musical-type stuff. I agreed to play in the orchestra for My Fair Lady. I figured the rehearsals would be the standard orchestra rehearsal length. However, they turned out to be much longer. In short, by the time I got home from the rehearsal I had about four hours to sleep before I had to get up and go to work. Next time I'll know better and arrange things differently. Hopefully Saturday I'll get caught up on these again. I'm sorry, everyone.

Take your time, give yourself your sleep and enjoy your music.
Whatever you do, don't burn yourself out nitpicking - the service we get from you is worth waiting for!

Have fun with the orchestra. I can certainly wait for nitpicks.

Thanks for the update and make sure to get caught up on the sleep. From my perspective I can always go on to the next assignment.

I can certainly appreciate a busy schedule. This is one of my rare slow periods so I come back to the ranch to play. =)

My Fair Lady performances have ended (last night). A major upgrade at work on Wednesday has everybody in a dither. I know some of you are wondering if I have your assignments, so I'll post a list tonight when I get home from work. I plan to get caught up again before the end of the week. Special apologies to Lance who's been waiting a long time.

Thanks. I figured that the delay was due to the huge amount of code you need to look over for the servlet and JDBC stuff. No worries.

    And do you think we feel guilty if ours stops us from doing our "homework". As much as I appreciate you dedication your guilt is misplaced pse. don't feel that way. I for one want you to have a private live.

    We work on our assignments when we are done with our day's work and other personal chores. So why shouldn't it be the same with you. We all understand you have a professional life and a private one. And then only the nitpicking life. So take off the cloak of guilt from your heart.

    There's no reason to feel guilty. Having fun is too important.

    Yes, Angela. I didn't know if you wanted to be public or not, so I took the conservative route and didn't publicize you. But you're definitely in the waiting list.

    Woops! My bad, I was just so excited to see you back on the trail that I forgot to ask if you even wanted it known... of course you did post a message in the inactive thread stating such, sooooo.... *whistles innocently*
    Funny, I still don't see JdJ's name anywhere on the active log or on Marilyn's waiting list...
