day of decisions

today i had to make the difficult decision of doing a lot more of the big ground work for my project or to do a lot of fluff-type stuff so that the perceived progress is greater. i guess it’s all about perception these days. is it better to look like you’ve got a lot done or is it better to do all the real hard work and then fill in the details later.

i’m usually a broad strokes kind of a person, so the little details to me have always seemed kind of trivial, but i guess the next few days are going to be spent working on the little details just so my bug list doesn’t look so big.

speaking of which:

total number of bugs in my project: 141
total number of bugs resolved: 97
total number of bugs left: 44
total number of times i’ve sworn at the bug tracking software today: 5 (and counting =P)
