I haven't written all that much mostly because work's been really busy, lately.

Managing a real project where none of the people report to me has been a bit like getting big, intelligent Clydesdales into their yokes (MUCH bigger and stronger than me, but willing) and then perching up on the driver's seat and getting them to all pull in unison the way I need 'em to go. Amazing to see things come magically in sync and the ride is MUCH faster than I thought it would be and we're pulling a massive load so far as the amount of work that's getting done. It's almost frightening, but very cool, too.
