Domino adventures

Almost finished another dynamic web site / content management system today. It produces the same look and feel as the main IBM web site; I can’t show it off to everyone, unfortunately, because it’ll be password-protected when it goes live.

Anyway, I say “almost” because there’s a bizarre bug, and I was quite unable to track down the cause. I came home instead. I’m counting on one of two things to happen: either I’ll go in tomorrow and the bug will have mysteriously vanished when the server does its general housekeeping stuff overnight, or my subconscious will quietly work on the problem, and I’ll walk in with my latte, look at the code, and say “Aha!”

The latter might sound pretty far-fetched, but it happens all the time.
