I finished my two pages, actually starting a new chapter in the process. I’ve described my troubled characters and my successful characters. Now I’m hoping to show how the Software Development Life Cycle can cause heated debate and disagreement among development teams as they try mightily to get along with each other.

Tomorrow is my only free day this week, and I want to use it to sit down and apply some planning to this book. I’d like a bit of a roadmap, just for my own comfort.

Got another half hour in. Worked on Table of Contents and finished an earlier section. This has felt sooooo good. Great experience.

Got my words in early, though a big chunk is copy/pasted code/output, so probably could’ve done more. Up to 8800 words or 35 pages!

Got in my writing time. Word count isn’t as high as others here, but I’m also in the gnarly sections of my book–I wrote all the easy stuff a long time ago. :)

Had some fun tonight coming up with an illustration of latency vs. throughput, and why they’re more orthogonal than people may think. Compared a fibre link between LA and NYC to driving a station wagon with a petabyte’s worth of tapes the same distance. The fiber may get the first byte there in 19ms, but the station wagon rocks in throughput.
