Yet again, I’m putting off the “Fieldwork vs. Armchairwork” post, which began as a joke threat, but is actually slowly turning into a few ideas about methods courses from a total neophyte and non DGS.
In the meantime, I’m getting very excited about 64 other “vs.” coming up in the next six weeks, namely the World Cup in South Africa, which opens on June 11th, pitting the hosts against the uncertain Mexican team. I think the Bafana Bafana will need quite a bit of hometown bounce to beat Mexico, but I find that totally within the realm of possible outcomes.
If you fancy yourself a good prognosticator of possible outcomes, I welcome you to join my silly little World Cup Challenge Pool, where one can pick the results of all 64 matches and win potential prizes.
I like some of the tricks I pulled off with the website, and it is, I promise, the last thing I ever write in procedural PHP (at least, that is, until I feel confident saying “Give me procedural PHP or give me death!” In other words, there’s a lot of progamming pupu platters in perceived future). Furthermore, the site relates a bit to the themes of this week’s posts in that I worked on it during downtime at Geoinst, despite the fact that it was already live. Oops.
