The big congratulations this week go to dean, hill, and rick.
Rick completed another of those nasty but necessary management
tasks: he finished a new PERT chart for Montage.
Mr. hill published the next smalltalk merge, which was another
of these real traumatic merges.
Dean completely mastered the fine art of breaking a task down
into pieces small enough so you can really see progress (and
also small enough so you can really see how many little tasks
there ARE, which is so critical to reliable forecasting of the
duration of the nightmare :-) In consequence, he not only completed
a lot of work for the write-to-disk milestone, he also completed
a lot of separately identified tasks: 15, in fact. I'm sure this
was even more satisfying to dean than it was to me, and it was
very satisfying to me :-)
Congratulations also go to roger, who has Tapestry compiling
Meetings: Joel, mlb, incorporation of factories in developer
pack, for Key Logic negotiation. Rick, mlb, marcs, priority of
PC server. Roger, paul, news in xanadu. Paul, markm, hill, db
networking question. Dean, michael, remaining divergence in snarfs.
Bill, marcs, discuss 4.1 upgrade. Markm, michael, et. al, hiding
virtuals. Hugh, michael, bugs in sets. Roger, markm, backup vlad.
Roland, michael, the return of a const parameter in C. Roger,
ravi, where font info lies.
