It's official. I tested positive for COVID-19. Bummer.
Don’t waste the opportunity to try all those bragging rights foods like haggis, lutefisk, Rocky Mountain oysters, and Nutella Chex! No taste or smell has to be good for something.

Also, good luck and kick it soon.

I guess that's ONE way of getting vaccinated... lol. Hope it's not a bad case for you. Are you feeling sick at all or did you just happen to get tested?
I went to work on Monday feeling a little tired. Got to work and started feeling chills and aches (hands, knees, etc). I made it halfway through the day before I left to go get tested. Felt better that evening. Woke up and repeated the same cycle, just not so bad. Same for today after I found out I was positive. I really thought it might be something else. We'll see if this progresses or it eventually goes away.

They've also moved the "Shopping Forum" back to where it was previously. I wonder if Future is going to sell AT soon.

Getting really bored about staying home. Want to do more things, but then either don't do it or shouldn't do it.

I'm getting the best sleep in years. This afternoon I dreamed that I was walking inside a moving train from on car to another. One car was full of marines in khaki colored unis. Weird.

I sometimes get really weird vivid dreams too. Been a while since I've had any though. I find if I take melatonin I have a better chance but I only take it if I really need it like when going from night to day shift.

Yeah, I'm sure that you switching sleep schedules doesn't help any.

I hate it when code that should work just decides not to work, and when you move it somewhere else, it works differently despite being fed the same data. Pulling my hair out. Been wasting over an hour on this stupid thing. It should just work, there is nothing else to check.

Have you tried rebooting?

Seriously raging at this point, it just makes no fucking sense.

Variable is clearly being sent via HTTP post, why the fuck is the other end not seeing it, and only if the script is in a certain folder. Made two copies of the exact script, one works, the other does not.

Shit like this pisses me off so much it's just a waste of time troubleshooting idiotic shit like this.

And why would it work in one place and not the other, it's the same fucking script posting to the same fucking server. So pissed off that I wasted over 2 hours on this idiocy and not getting anywhere. Going to end up having to rewrite everything from scratch just to try to get around this.

Is this a work problem or some self-inflicted home hobby issue?

Figured out part of it but it still makes no sense... going to give up for tonight. Actually wanted to go to bed early, so much for that. Won't be able to sleep anyway until I figure this out.

Not really, if this had worked it would not have been a problem.

Figured it out, so I was using http_build_query() to create a url string and it's that function that was behaving weirdly for some reason depending on where my class was being used. So I just wrote my own function to replace it. Sometimes using built in functions is not always the way to go I guess.

I don't need a new computer but the new Asus TR-Pro motherboard specs look pretty nifty. A TB of memory would make a nice RAM drive.
