Notes to self

1. A reminder to add a latest item feed thing to the home page

Wednesday. 18:11. Time for a beer.

It’s been a bit of a two steps back, no three, no four, now one step forward kind of week so far. I’ve made progress today, but haven’t quite got to where I hoped I might be yesterday. Such is the life of a developer. Coders are renowned for being rather optimistic when evaluating how long things might take, and I have to admit to fitting the stereotype.

It’s the last 1% the messes things up. The big picture stuff, the grand system design takes minutes. Finding a typo in code haystack can take a day.
