Things that please programmers

Every once in a while, while coding, I manage to do something that makes me really really pleased, and trying to explain it to anyone else usually falls flat. It's sometimes kind of frustrating.

Today I managed to fix up the Tool menu for the CAD I'm writing, and it came out really nice and elegant, I think. It's something that Just Works now, and seems nicely intuitive, and took several hours of work to implement. And the end user (hopefully) shouldn't ever even think about it.

Glad things are coming along well.

I might have to check this out at some point. My current CAD tool is xfig.

I still haven't forgotten about the image-to-depth thing, either. I set up the camera calibration bits before getting sidetracked by the rest of life. I'll poke at it again after getting the plotter for the MUCK mapper working properly.
