As everyone knows, I've been swamped with a project at work for the last six months. I've been having a lot of fun, but I've been extremely busy, and I've had little energy for anything else. For the last month (saving last week's attendance at the Tcl conference) I've been in a sprint, leading up to next week when we're having our "Proof-of-Principle", a live demo where real people get to bang on my software and see if it really does anything useful. It's a limited demo, in that the full capability isn't being delivered until this May...nevertheless, it shows that the software is architecturally complete, and can do all of the kinds of things it's supposed to be able to do.

Now, my software doesn't run in a vacuum; it cooperates with several other software packages. And today, for the first time, we actually got all of them up and talking to each other with everything working the way it's supposed to. There are a few more small bugs to squish before next week, but honestly everything's looking pretty good.

Now maybe I'll be able to relax a little.
