Just "enunciated" a set of web services with very little work. Fully automagically generated online documentation in a couple lines of XML is just awesome!

Hacker News (news.ycombinator.com) has been down for me at Cisco for the past 2 days. Works fine from home though. I figure my productivity has shot up at least 50%.

Alas, the project I created from scratch over 2 years ago is finally being being put down. Oddly I'm not sad, a little wistful perhaps. It was my baby, I wrote it's first lines of code, was the first person to check it into Subversion, saw it grow up into it's own homegrown ORM (never doing that again), experienced user growth that surpassed all of the other tools my coworkers were on, and then saw it's entire business team laid off in one fell swoop.

gotta love misleading comments! Except in this case I left the comment and it confused me when I came back to it to figure out how something I wrote worked.
