This is really nice- it makes it easy to feel like I accomplished something. That's hard to do in the first few days at a new job. I actually have a useful realistic task to perform. I've got a few others- like being the guinea pig for Visual Studio 2005. Now, I've used it before (unlike most of my co-workers), but I've never really used it with applications like this ancient classic ASP app. Theoretically, it might become a DotNet app someday, but this goes back to billable time- that's not going to add features or functionality, therefore it doesn't matter.
It's going to be a very different experience for me, but the app I'm babysitting is definitely an interesting challenge. It's a contract-management/facility-operations-m
//It doesn't help that every time someone finds out what app I'm going to be working on they frown or apologize.
