The clock just ticked past midnight. I haven’t written for a couple of days, so thought it might be an idea. I’ve been working around the clock this week – through the day in the office, and then through the evening at home. One project in the daytime – another project at home. I don’t really mind for a little while because I’m being paid for every minute – and we really need the money at the moment.
The more fun part of starting new projects is putting the various pieces of the jigsaw together – the database schema, the server-side object model, the client-side object model, the user interface, and so on. After figuring out what you’re going to build, and how you’re going to do it, development often turns into a mammoth game of “who can hold the biggest chunk of the mountain above their head at once” – all while trying to explain to the client that “no, you can’t have a little bit of the 747 to try out – it doesn’t really work without the jet engines, wings, wheels, and… well… all of it really”.
Anyway – it’s time I went to bed. The clock is ticking – tomorrow is already here.
