Eureka, but without the nudity…

…like Archimedes.

I started this a while back, and for some reason, I never finished it.  So here it is, though kinda boring.

One of the most rewarding parts of my job is solving problems with software.  Usually it’s Python scripts or webpages written in PHP and Javascript.  Today, it was Python.  And it was a good one.  Been working on it for about a week, and today I got it working.  And it works perfectly (once I worked the bugs out of it).  There’s still a bit of tweaking and improving to do, mostly to purge the data of human error.  There’s nothing quite like the feeling of writing a couple hundred lines of code from scratch and seeing it work, gathering hundreds of megabytes of information and outputting a usable data file.  I love it.
