On Friday, I decided to work on website using the django framework.
Well, after spending most of Friday evening trying to get mysql installed, I started again on Saturday morning. I decided to use an alternative database, like PostgreSQL or sqlite3 (again). But it was not to be. After several hours trying to get my django model to sync with the database, I decided it was time for something else: a hike.
My sfAWIS partner in crime and I headed out to San Pedro Valley park for a hike. We went probably 5 miles up a mountain, and had a wonderful view of Linda Mar beach in Pacifica nearby and Mt. Tam in the distance. It was so nice to get outside, breathe some fresh air, and to see the start of wildflower season. I also went to dinner with some friends at Gracias Madre, a vegan Mexican place in the Mission. Definitely interesting food, including fake “cheese.”
Today I went back to playing around with my website. I haven’t finished what I wanted to, but did manage to complete my MySQL installation. Yippee! After that, I went on to get my “python manage.py syncdb” command to work. I’m having other issues now, but feel that I’m making progress.
Do you also feel a sense of accomplishment when you get your computer/ code to do things you expect?
