Pastel Work

This one is similar to previous works but I liked it so it got rendered.

Today's Gratitude Item: That the database I developed in Open Office Base was rendered useless by data corruption (a known 'issue' with OOoBase -I thought I was immune and that data corruption only happened to 'other people')! This is an odd thing to be grateful for but it made me realise that 'split databases' are the way to go (as in this effectively resolves the data corruption issue). Also, I had not really started using the database so did not lose any vital information. Having this experience will change the way that I teach the Unit on databases this year and I am grateful that I have not yet made any teaching resources for this based on the 'old' way of doing things. In summary, things went a bit 'pear shaped' today but it could have been a whole lot worse.
