Code déjà vu

Friday 15 August 2008

The other day, I sat down to add a small feature to the Tabblo code. I mentally plotted out what pieces I’d have to build, and how they would interact. I wrote the first piece, and then moved on to where I would have to add the second piece. When I got there, the code was already there!

Sometime quite recently, in the last two months let’s say, I had actually pretty much already written the very feature I thought I had to write now. Whoa.

At least it made coding it up easier!

Ned,

I had that happen in May last year when working on a big project. I figured it was a sign but I really appreciated that I'd done the work when I found it!

Deja vu is certainly a strange thing!

You'd better get that doppelganger of yours under control. No telling what else he's doing!

Usually when that happened to me it was because Bob got to it before me...
