... is how I passed my performance review today. Okay, maybe not totally flying. At least Royal Ascot calibre racing? =) The point is, they like me, I'm not a useless turnip and I'm not fired. So, yay for me.

I named a few people that I'd like to work with in the future if the opportunity came up because they have strengths and knowledge where I'm weaker. I said I'd like to do certain types of projects that have a focus on certain technology that I'd like to learn (if we ever get an MP3 project, I AM SOOO THERE!!!). And I'd dearly love to work with a *NIX OS again. That's my solution to everything: open up a Command window; (on a Mac) open up a Terminal window and grep for it; cd to the kitchen and grep for a snack.

My salary review will be a few months down the road. Somehow, they don't want the salary review to be associated with the performance review. I don't quite know why, but I'll buy it. They feed me and clothe me too, so I'm really not complaining. I don't count pennies with people who are honest, fair and treat me well.

I also had two software releases to do. They're two separate projects, but they're actually two parts of the same thing. But still, Release Days are always interesting.

This week, I got to touch more code than I have in a loooong time. QA isn't supposed to touch code, but this was really piddly. I was hoping the guys would be way too swamped to care =)

As powerful as Developer Studio is, my instinct is still to edit the files in a plain text editor =D And as with most things, you set up the resources once, build to regenerate the headers, then you only need to change the .rc file in one spot which is 2 or 3 written steps of instruction as opposed to a 10 step process for opening the project in Dev Studio, push this, crank that, etc.
