Quantum of SCADA

So…yeah…today sucked.  Is it possible to have negative productivity?  After running off the track (not too far) yesterday, Jeff pointed out the correct tracks far off on the horizon and I trudged back, shoved the consist back on the rails, and got re-started.  Of the dozens of lines of unnecessary (but not bad) code, I only had to undo a couple.  Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday I made great progress. 361 more words
