Heavy development gets under my skin in the worst, and best, way. When I used to do a lot of database-driven coding, I'd find that my nights were filled with "web-based nightmares" (mathowie's term). I'd dream of these terribly long and complicated SQL statements, filled with JOINS and sub-queries, I'd wrangle huge record sets and endlessly loop through all the data, For, Next, Ubound, ad finitum. Lately though, it's all about parsing XML. Last night I dreamt of giant strings of XML, and I just kept concatenating and concatenating and everything I looked at got wrapped in tags and added to my giant string. I'd spot a chair, <chair>, a table, <table>, on and on and on. It was exhausting. Sign #327 that it's time for a vacation.
