still liking this living thing

second day in a row of knee deep immersion in the code-base I'm living in these days.
Figured out how to use 4 or 5 different widgets that should allow me to construct whatever I want.

The guys who built this out baked in support for the Visitor pattern and the Observer pattern.
I haven't had the need to use either yet but I swear to god it's like getting a new power drill.

(it's also model-view-controller based)

Sorry, they're probably all going to start a little technical these days. I just jumped from a job that was sucking the life out of me and had been doing so for the last decade.
I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong - the universal problem has been both me and the work.
I changed the work.
A huge sigh of relief when I found out I wasn't the problem.

I may recant, but right now I feel like saying Oracle Applications can go screw.
The rest of the stack I probably can't just shove in the toilet though. Java is one of my languages, after all ;)

I think it might just be the nerd in me, but Dragon's Milk is the best fucking beer ever.
