Hashtable, Vector, Plastic Penguin

Staring at the screen wondering what on earth to do with my Hashtable is not a productive way to code.  Especially when I really need a Vector, not a Hashtable.  Lots of tedious database code to write for Chronicle.

On the plus side, I'm programming a whole lot better than I was six months ago.  Doing an explicit cast is routine, Hashtables make sense, even inheritance seems normal.

The Plastic Penguin method of software bug fixing:

Call someone over and sit them down next to you.  Explain exactly what the problem is.  Get a blinding flash of the obvious.  Fix bug.  Thank the person for being there, even though a plastic penguin would have done just as well because they didn't need to say anything.
