All in a day....

Had a meeting today... where they changed the spec on the project..again :)

They added an additional tier of responsibilities.. almost like I was an employee. It's funny sometimes how entrenched a contract person can become, when their time at the company is limited.

Don't get me wrong, I'm flattered by the additional responsibility, and the possiblity that this could extend the contract further, it's certainly easier to extend the one you have than find another!!

I also made a couple of interesting Visual FoxPro discoveries this week, not the least of which was the ability to programmatically create private data sessions! Without a form or form set. This has the potential to cut thousands of lines of 'houskeeping code' from applications!! You simply define the private session, open all the tables/DBC's within that session and when you exit the program you're dropped right back where you were, same table, same position!! Sweet!

I find myself wishing that there was more opportunity on this project to explore the .NET world though. The more I work in that environment, the more impressed, and intrigued with it I am.

I suppose I'll have to keep working on the .Net library and count on the possibility that the next gig will allow me to put it to use!
