Been doing some more work on the Knowledge Base; last night I updated the page on services, which I thought would be a fifteen minute quicky and turned out to be an all night slog. Tom B., when he wrote the stuff initially, included a comprehensive list of all the services in MDK. When I came to it last night, this hadn’t been updated since 8.1. I quickly discovered just how many new services we’ve added since 8.1…took me about three hours to rewrite just the A-H section with all the new stuff. Got to do the rest of the alphabet soon. That’s going to be fun. Sigh.
Back to playing tennis this morning – my ankle’s not 100% yet, I can’t move to the backhand side very fast and there’s no way I can chase down a lob, but I can play OK otherwise. Strange game; I went 5-0 up in the first set and won it 6-2, lost the second 6-1, and was serving at 5-6, 15-30 in an extremely tight third when my opponent had to leave to take his wife to work. Playing again tomorrow, hope I’ll be closer to 100% by then!
For one reason or another I haven’t had a chance to read very much lately, but I had some quiet time last night and sat down with Kazuo Ishiguro’s latest, Never Let Me Go. It’s wonderful so far, and I can’t wait to see what he’s going to do with the ending…
