New Job Update
It's slowly sinking in regarding drafting design docs. We keep it real at http://www.TiBASolutions.com . I mean, I can get docs others have written and code a whole damned project from start to finish. THat's the easy part. Writing the things and doing it right is what's giving me trouble. We have a “always build good ships” mentality which is very cool. But learning the nuances of Word and how to document things is a well needed splash of cold water in my face. Greenville is totally kick a33. Went to a triathalon store (yes, an actual triathalon store in South Carolina) and did the tests to see what shoes will fit my feet and hopefully cure this terrible heal pain I get each time I try running. Lot's of cool stuff here - too much to mention.
At the end of the day I was wrapping with a programmer who's pretty new too. He had a helmet and I asked him about his bike. He's hit 160 on the thing and there is no doubt the dude was telling the truth. You'd never guess he was an adrenaline junkie being that he's your typical C# Guru and very laid back. Got me really intrigued. He said after like 120 you can't really tell the difference of another 10 mph - it's so blurred all you really notice is more wind tugging on you and your speedometer going up. He has a buddy that took a spill on a race track going just over 100. He lived through it b/c of his helmet and jacket - you don't have to wear helmets here in SC but you can tell a big difference between those that do and those that don't (usually at least a 40 k salary difference and better education).
Anyway, really tired and got a lot to do. Will write something more entertaining tomorrow.
