Keep Your Fingers Crossed

I just sent two pages of bullet points to the Vice President in charge of our group that outline what I think needs to be done in our development effort across the next 18 months to two years. It pretty much says, "I can give you what you asked for -- here's how. And you get these things too."

Our Product Manager is going to hate it, I suspect.

And we'll see what happens next.

Just a Bit Warm Here

I got home from work for dinner with daisy_knotwise, jeff_duntemann, Carol, Katie, and Julie and I noticed that the house was a bit warm. Apparently, the air conditioner was doing a fine job of running, but no job at all of cooling.

Since the fan was running and no cold air was coming out, the conclusion is that the compressor is not a happy beastie. We've called our heating and cooling guy -- the husband of one of Gretchen's former co-workers -- and he'll come by in the morning and look at it.

In the meantime, it's going to be a long, hot night.
