Due to an inspired decision made under pressure our activity for cub scouts today was paper airplanes. I purchased a book called The Dangerous Book for Boys and the very first page is about making paper airplanes. It was a hit even if the design didn’t work as well as it did during the demo in my hotel room the night before. I’m sure I’ll be using this book again before the year is out to find activities for htese boys.
I had a very productive day at work today. I actually wrote code for most of the day and I had a couple really fun "Aha!" moments. I write mostly using VB Script, but for my next big project I will probably be using Visual Basic 2005. I like scripting better because I like to write code that is doing something immediately and not have to get caught up in usablity and support. I have to admit I am not always sure why I go into work, but at least I enjoyed what I was doing today.
