You know what's annoying?
When you had an idea of something you wanted to look at the differences in, in SQL, but you didn't write down what you wanted to look at and can't recall *exactly* what it was.
But you can recall enough to kind of - sort of start your comparison...

I don't think that's at all unusual. I have some of my coolest ideas when I'm nowhere near a computer. Remembering exactly what it is later...well, let's just say that the Vegas odds-makers could be put to work on that one.

Few options here
Cool
  1. Carry a notebook and a pen
  2. Record the thought on your phone
  3. Call your voicemail
  4. Start taking memory enhancement supplements
  5. Call a friend (limited calls available)
  6. Carve it in stoneWink

Heh - I've done #1 by jotting down a couple of notes on my phone or writing it down. I keep forgetting about #4. Wink I've also been known to text myself once in a while.

I text myself all the time. Not even kidding here. Probably at least 5-6 a week.

Back in the recording studio this week. We recorded a demo about a year ago and now we are working up a cd ep. Should be 4 songs and give us something we can sell at shows. Everyone else has already recorded their parts and my first time walking in the door is tonight. Should be interesting. We have all the horn parts charted out but I have never even met the sax player yet and he won't be there tonight either. Hoping I get to meet him in the next couple weeks at rehearsal. Otherwise I will have recorded with this guy and the first time I meet him is on stage New Year's Eve. Smile

I text my hotel room number and parking spaces to myself. Sometimes I forget where things are on different trips.
