The long hand of history

When I was writing last night’s item about Easter eggs, I linked to my old project, Procurement Desktop – Defense, without following the link. This morning, I clicked the link and was pleased to see that the last release that I worked on, as a developer, system architect, and requirements lead, has finally gone out the door as Version 4.2. Going down the list of system features, I recognize many that I designed, coded, and fought for. It’s amazing that they were released in 2003 when the code was complete and entering testing in late 2000, but that’s life with the government.
