Twitter is the new haiku

Don't you think so? Future generations will teach it as a form of classical literature.

My documentation project is going well. It doesn't bother me to do end-user documentation; actually I feel it serves a number of purposes. People at Berkeley tend to not do this, to the best of my observation, because they feel it compromises their job security. If no one can figure out how to maintain their stuff, they will be more needed...but it's not true. I've already seen this several times. If someone leaves, they leave, no one knows how to do their the stuff stagnates. Eventually, it's tossed, and some other poor bastard is brought in to reinvent the wheel.

That's likely a cynical perspective? but, again, imo it does not hurt to record what you're doing. Software is like paper clips—before there were paper clips, did people know they needed them? Typically you have to develop software in anticipation of what people will need. Documentation can create more of a market; if more people understand your products and how to use them, you can drum up more future projects.

Plus, there's nothing like a screenshot to illustrate all the little things you overlooked, and can still fix. lol No I haven't released this stuff yet.

It went back to being cold again today, and I had to slap together an outfit. Ah! In my dreams I have this...closet...somewhere to hang clothes after ironing them, without having to squash them in like sardines. What am I even talking about, the sardines get to lie neatly on top of each other. At least tomorrow is Friday.
