My customers are in education support so I had almost 2.5 weeks to take advantage of the downtime and tackle a few major projects that need a few days each of intense concentration. Of that 2.5 weeks so far, I've spent 6 days away from home visiting kids/grandkids, 1 day assembling a new desk and bookcase I bought the wife...when she picked it out, she assumed it came assembled, and only 5 days of working on my priority stuff. The other days, including most of today, have been spent trying to appease a senior partner with her pet project...I call it the gift that keeps on giving. Laugh | :laugh:

The missus has scheduled us for New Year's Eve dinner/drinks at a friend's house. The friend's boyfriend is a chess freak and seems to get a sick satisfaction from repeatedly beating people who just don't take it that seriously. Laugh | :laugh: The next afternoon, my younger brother will be making a pitstop on his way to a 5 week baseball umpire school to pursue his second dream career. (That's what happens when you retire too early from the first career without good planning) This means that I only have a few days left of peace and quiet to finish up the holiday todo list.

On the plus side, my son-in-law in Florida gave me a really nice Christmas present that is helping to lift my spirits and increase my concentration...getting a lot done! Laugh | :laugh:

Straw Poll

Do you feel you fully understand the vision and purpose of the software project you're working on?
Sure you can be told the "what", but do you have the "why"?
