Wow...six months of hardcore development and my current project is "done."

I'm putting "done" in quotes because we had to cut several corners to get the website to launch at the same time as the new back-end architecture, and aside from one really bad bug that I'm still trying to track down, the new build going live tonight should make things work significantly better.

Over the next week, I'll be filling in the feature gaps for what had to be delayed slightly, polishing up the features that need them, and hopefully find the database transaction issue that is affecting the first person after a process recycle.

I've put in 276 hours of work over the last three weeks. It's the worst crunch I have done since leaving Microsoft. I hope it will never happen again, but unfortunately I know better.

Tomorrow, haircut.

Nothing says "deathmarch" better than your final line: "Tomorrow, haircut."

ugh...I don't miss death marches at all. Glad you survived.
