Yeah, well, I guess I'm just weird in quite a lot of ways — and today I found another one :) It's a bit programming-specific or at least keeping-track-of-my-own-projects-specific, so maybe not everybody will be interested — hell, maybe nobody will care — but still, here it goes.
Turns out that when I discover a directory in my repository or on my harddisk, and it contains some files that apparently make up a program (complete or woefully incomplete, working or just some intermediate version, with or without documentation), I actually get a kick out of digging into my memories and various archives to find out what the hell that was, why I wrote it, whom I was supposed to show it to (was it a pet project of mine or did somebody ask for help with something) and how in blazes have I managed to forget all about it! Yeah, it's fun :)
This happened to me twice just today — first with block-summarize and then with timewrap. With block-summarize it was even more fun — I remembered exactly when I wrote it (just before, during and just after Kiril Vladimirov's KDE talk at OpenFest 2010 :), I pretty much remembered what it was all about, but I was kind of hazy on the details, so there I went, looking through the directories on my disk to see what I'd written around that time. And during that search, lo and behold, there was something I didn't remember writing at all — and that turned out to be timewrap :)
Yeah, sure, I know what all that says about some aspects of my thinking and organization — well, sue me :) The funniest part is, this happens just a day after my hard anf fast decision to really, really do something in the next couple of days about the list of tools and the “newsreel” about what was released when at http://devel.ringlet.net/ — looks like I really need to do that now that I keep forgetting this I've written myself!
PS. I wonder if this “I guess I'm just weird that way” thing might start a wave of confessions across the blogosphere… nah, most probably not :)
