I'm also looking forward to concentrating on fewer things; I've felt very distracted at WebCT ever since I got back from sabbatical, because I came back too early, and have had the book (and shopping for a house, and moving, and now the job switch) eating at me.

Last day at WebCT
I'm finishing up my last day at WebCT. I start, as a sub-contractor, at NLG on monday(!). No rest for the weary. It's awkward and a bit sad to be moving on, but I'm looking forward to a few months out, when (hopefully) I largely support myself with Tapestry and HiveMind. I've spent a lot of time in my career "batting cleanup", coming in late to projects and products to bring order out of chaos. I was refactoring (in PL/1) before I even knew such a term existed (our group coined the word "Howardizing") ... not to mention creating unit tests and all that ... everything old is new again.
