I love feeling like I’m on the edge of something huge. I’ve felt kind of stagnant the last few months, and I think I’m finally coming out of it. I’m still frustrated by a lot of what I have to do at work, and some of the people here (ok, a lot of them). But, I think I can get around that by working on this new thing. It’s huge. It’s revolutionary for our group and what we do. It could free me and the other two engineering guys up for bigger and better things.

I’ve barely started on it other than proving that it can be done. The first round rules. It works! It doesn’t crash anything. It plays well with others and doesn’t break anything (yet). I need to add a bunch of configuration options to it and clean it up, which is the least fun part. But, once I’m done, I may never have to hear anyone say, “Can you move it two pixels over and make it blue? I’ll send you the color later today.”, ever again. Won’t that be nice?

It’s too bad I can’t tell you all what it is. It’s really cool. It’s revolutionary. It’s counter-culture intuitive. It rocks the socks off the box. It’ll make you cry out my name and beg for more. Ok, maybe not that… but it’s cool. And it’s mine.
