I don't mind doing documentation as long as it is documenting the stuff I wrote and was done properly. I hate trying to document other people's code, especially when structurally it is a mess.

As for what I am doing today, trying to get answers on a contractor who was going to take a look at a bug in one of our systems. You would think it take a day or so to get an idea of the problem but it has already been 2 business days and I am not even sure if the message got to the contractor. Oh well, system will stay buggy until then.

Also writing little classes and enhancements, nothing major.

I used to be a tech writer. I learned that every time I saw a need for documentation, what I was really seeing was a need for design and standards, both of them rigorously enforced

If you have those, the documentation is about 90% superfluous, and a good developer can figure out the edge cases. If you don't have those, the documentation won't help for long enough to be worth the money you spent on it.

This is so my non-developer coworkers who do have a grasp on SQL can look at the data in the database and troubleshoot without me. That works fine for other coders, but looking at SQL and C# can be intimidating if you're only passingly familiar with them.

not to mention if they don't know about Triggers they're probably never going to look at the Update Trigger on a table to figure out why it's stopping a particular piece of data from updating.

Rest in peace Mr. Hawking.

Quote

Stephen Hawking, the brilliant British theoretical physicist who overcame a debilitating disease to publish wildly popular books probing the mysteries of the universe, has died, according to a family spokesman. He was 76.[...]

Look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious.

DQ got a verbal beatdown at work apparently and is crying to me via instant messenger. Shes a test automation lead and has been avoiding automation like the plague and it's finally came back to bite her in the ass. She wondered why her manager was giving her the cold shoulder...

I am chewing over a fun question for the day - if there is a parent/child relationship, with a city and a country, then how to add Moyale?

Quote

Moyale is a market town on the border of Ethiopia and Kenya, which is split between the two countries: the larger portion is in Ethiopia which is split by the Oromia Region from west and the Somali region from east, and the smaller is in Marsabit County, Kenya (the former capital of the defunct Moyale District)[...]

The same way you would treat Kansas City, I guess. If you look at that on a map you'll see the name in each country.
