I've been keeping quite busy at work. I'm currently in the middle three projects, code-named: Gnome, Jello, and GoldenEye. Actually, i think i'm the only one in the company that uses the code names. Coming up with them is really fun for me. It helps me to keep the project focused and clear. I like to come up with the name right away and that, in turn, inspires me to create some documentation with the code name in big letters at the top.
I can't tell you exactly what my secret projects involve, but i can say that i've been attacking a wide variety of technical challenges. Lately i've been extracting information out of archaic data files, calculating the statistical correlation between certain sales events, tweaking Firefox extensions, manipulating image files, designing Windows forms user interfaces, and redrawing database diagrams. It's been a while since i've had to touch a web page and i've been enjoying the time away. I like the change of pace.Posted by Matthew at August 12, 2005 09:51 PM
