a man whose life is work has no f'ing life.

i've felt that my life has gotten completely boring. i can't really talk to anyone about anything anymore - nothing exciting ever happens to me; i'm just usually holed up, working on some aspect to one of my websites.

i spent some time writing a search engine for the lyrics website; i really really like the one i built. there's no ranking system yet, but honestly with such a small dataset, it's up to the end user to put in a refined search. Go try it out here ... you'll also notice a listing of the last 20 queries. I'm hoping that if i start logging the search queries and the solutions that people find, I can refine my algorithm or make "suggestions."

I need to finish SingItWith.us by tomorrow. I actually finished up the refining artistnames for Audiomatch today; if I can finish SingItWith.Us by tomorrow... I'll be set to finish up the rest of Audiomatch ... and then ... TABULAS! YES!

I'm running into a slight problem though. the server that these sites are all on ... is starting to exhibit normal load averages of 3.0. This is nothing to jump at, but ideally I'd like to keep the load averages below 4.0 - 5.0 all the time. With more users joining audiomatch every day (15 ACTIVE people per day on audiomatch) ... this is going to cause a lot of problems.

I may try to boost up production of Tabulas at the sake of my health and sleep in order to try to get 1.0 finished and then I can start charging for advanced features or knock out some of the more CPU-intensive aspects of Tabulas (hit logging will def only be a paid solution).

Argh. Decisions decisions. Of course, if I would only start doing some freelance work again, most of my monetary problems would go away. I could just get a separate server for Tabulas/SingItWith.us...
Currently listening to: Backstreet Boys's All I Have to Give
