Coding Session #17: Coding is !@#$ Messy

Layout work, value lists, adding data points, navigating eclipse, keeping track of todo items, digging through old code, getting lost, getting timely help, writing new code, assigning tasks to other people, speccing stuff out, reviewing other's code, passing params, JSDocs, general debugging, form in dialogs, debugging form in dialogs, naming conventions, smart client, web client, SVN, foundsets, filtering lists, tab panels, anchoring, old school UI runtime manipulation....

All with rambling train-of-thought commentary.

Seriously, this is what coding is really like. Which probably means that being good programmer is really all about how much chaos can you handle at one time while still moving forward. Hint: don't go it alone....
