Working Post

I view writing on this blog as something connected to my normal weekday routine — after work I'll write up a post that is automatically published here with a program. When weekends roll around I hardly think about blogging. This weekend, however, is different. Even though it is Memorial Day in the US and I have off, Monday is still part of the weekday, meaning the program still runs.

This is me scrambling to write something to take the place of what the program posted instead — my previous post.

How fascinating that a program works on one layer of meaning while I'm operating on another. What I consider a weekend is different than what the cron job that publishes a post considers a weekend. The cron job doesn't have the flexibility that I do (though of course I could try to program that in).
